Here are snapshots of the five general elections held in Singapore since 1988 when the Group Representation Constituencies (GRCs) were introduced to ensure that Malays, Indians and other ethnic minorities were represented in parliament. All the figures are from the Singapore Elections website.
This chart shows the total electorate and the number of voters who couldn’t vote because no opposition candidates stood for election in their constituencies.
This chart shows the number of ruling People’s Action Party (PAP) members of parliament who were elected unopposed and the number of constituencies where the PAP won a walkover since the opposition did not contest those seats. The PAP won walkovers in seven of the 14 GRCs in the last general election, in 2006; in 10 GRCs in 2001; in nine GRCs in 1997; in 10 GRCs and one single-seat ward in 1991; and in three GRCs and two single-seat wards in 1988.
