A quick guide for young S’poreans to make it look like you know your GRCs
Challenge your friends to guess which constituencies these places are at on your public holiday out this Friday.
Serangoon is split between Aljunied and Marine Parade GRCs; Bukit Batok Road is in Choa Chu Kang GRC and not Bukit Batok SMC; and Bukit Panjang Plaza belongs to the Holland-Bukit Timah GRC, not the Bukit Panjang SMC.
Honestly, the electoral boundaries has got all of us young Singaporeans going, “Huh!?”
But don’t worry, this is nothing to be embarrassed about because I am sure even our own politicians are confused. However, to help give you, our readers, a one up against your peers, Mothership.sg has helped prepare a list of frequently-visited places and which GRC they belong to that you should know about (in addition to where you live).
