Election Results Singapore; PAP wins Moulmein-Kallang GRC

This is the latest news update that the People's Action Party (PAP) has won Moulmein-Kallang Group Representation Constituency (GRC). A record 2.2 million people are eligible to vote, many for the first time, the government-backed Straits Times newspaper reported. In the last parliamentary election in 2006, 1.22 million people voted when 47 out of 84 seats were up for grabs, the newspaper said.

Asia News reports that the People's Action Party (PAP) beat Workers' Party's (WP) team.

People's Action Party (PAP) received 58.56 per cent of the votes, while WP had 41.44 per cent.

The PAP team comprises Yaacob Ibrahim, Lui Tuck Yew, Denise Phua, and new candidate Edwin Tong. 

The economy took center stage in the election. Many voters said they were worried about the relatively high cost of living and the rise of low-wage immigrant workers.

The WP team comprises Mohd Rahizan Yaacob, Frieda Chan, L Somasundaram, and Toh Hong Boon.
