Ballot papers and other documents used in the General Election on Sept. 11, 2015, have been destroyed on Saturday, March 12, 2016.

The Elections Department had said in a statement on Monday, March 7, that the ballot papers have been kept in sealed boxes and stored in the Supreme Court for the mandatory six-month period since the election took place and will be gotten rid of.

This is in accordance with the Parliamentary Elections Act.

The incineration of documents was carried out at the Tuas South Incineration Plant.

Candidates who contested in the election were allowed to witness the destruction of papers.

The transparent process is to ensure secrecy of voting.

Below is a video taken by the Workers' Party's candidate for MacPherson SMC, Bernard Chen Jiaxi, showing how the process is carried out:
