Smart Reads of the Week: Election Cool-Off

And so, the first-ever election held during a pandemic is now over.

It seems there was something for everyone this time around.

Those who support the incumbent PAP saw the ruling party retaining its supermajority as it captured 83 out of the 93 available seats.

With a vote share of 61%, it was a respectable performance albeit a decline from the 69% back in 2015.

Others who support the opposition parties saw the Workers Party make some headway to take a second GRC, the first time in history since Singapore’s independence.
