Singapore (VNA) – The Singaporean Government on March 12 announced that more polling districts will be added to six out of the seven group representation constituencies (GRCs).

A notification published in the electronic edition of the government on March 12 updated polling districts in seven GRCs: Ang Mo Kio, Bishan-Toa Payoh, Chua Chu Kang, Nee Soon, Pasir Ris-Punggol, Sembawang and Tampines.

For instance, Ang Mo Kio GRC, which previously had 62 polling districts, now has 64, while Chua Chu Kang GRC's figure rose from 43 to 45. Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC still has the largest number of polling districts at 81, up from 78.

Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on March 12 that the COVID-19 situation is under control and there are no plans to raise the disease outbreak alert level to red.

The PM’s announcement suggests the report of the Electoral Boundaries Review Committee, which reviews Singapore's electoral boundaries and divisions, is likely to be released at the end of this month, with the possibility of the general election in May or June./.
