The incumbent People's Action Party (PAP) won Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC with 64.15 per cent of the total votes.

The Singapore's Democratic Alliance (SDA) has come in second with 23.67 per cent of the votes.

Peoples Voice (PV) earned 12.18 per cent of the votes.

A minimum of 12.5 per cent of votes is needed to avoid forfeiting the election deposit of S$13,500 per candidate.

The PAP's team consisted of Teo Chee Hean, Desmond Tan, Yeo Wan Ling, Janil Puthucheary, and Mohamed Sharael.

SDA's team consisted of Abu Mohamed, Desmond Lim Bak Chuan, Harminder Pal Singh, Kuswadi Atnawi, and Kelvin Ong.

PV's team consisted of Lim Kay Cheow Jireh, Prabu s/o Ramachandran, Mohamed Nassir bin Ismail, Goh Keow Wah, and Vigneswari d/o V Ramachandran.

This is the fourth time that SDA has tried to take the GRC.

Desmond Lim - who leads the SDA - has participated in all the elections since 2006, save for the 2016 Bukit Batok by-election.
