Our reader calls for by-elections in GRC constituencies which voted strongly against the PAP. #SGelections

I URGE the authorities to review the Group Representation Constituency (GRC) election results in detail by individual constituencies. If the results show that a particular constituency's residents voted strongly against the People's Action Party (PAP), the authorities should consider holding a by-election, where other PAP candidates, such as Mr George Yeo or Mrs Lim Hwee Hua, are fielded. Otherwise, the voters there will be unhappy if the MP serving them had been voted in due to an overall GRC win, and not by the majority's choice. The PAP won Marine Parade GRC with only 56.6 per cent of the valid votes, although the constituency used to be its stronghold. This may mean the majority voted for the opposition in one of the wards. If this is true, then the PAP should listen harder to the voters in that ward.
