FIRST-TIME voter and undergraduate Lim Yan Pin is thrilled to find out that he now lives in a Single-Member Constituency, following the release of the Electoral Boundaries Report on Thursday.

Mr Lim told RazorTV after he received his NextGen Leadership certificate from Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong, that he is interested in politics as 'it is a means to help people improve their lives."

The programme aims to nurture young community leaders by putting them through workshops and attachments to grassroots organisation and Voluntary Welfare Organisations.
