Earlier today (September 3), Minister for Home Affairs and Law K Shanmugam stopped by a Kopitiam at popular mall Northpoint City to interact with residents.

Mr K. Shanmugam currently serves as the MP for Nee Soon GRC.

Potong Pasir is currently managed by Sitoh Yih Pin of the People’s Action Party as of the recent 2015 General Elections.

Before the 2011 General Elections, Singapore’s then-longest serving opposition MP and Secretary-General of the Singapore People’s Party (SPP) Chiam See Tong, served this constituency from 1984 to 2011. In the 2011 elections, Lina Chiam, took over the reins from incumbent Chiam See Tong. In the 2015 General Elections, Sitoh Yih Pin successfully defended this ward to Lina Chiam, this time with 66.41% of the votes. Chiam was not given an NCMP thus ending a 31-year streak where SPP had represented an opposition ward since 1984. -/TISGFollow us on Social Media
