The results of the 2011 General Election (GE2011) stunned the nation.1 The political landscape had changed as the PAP suffered a major electoral setback. It won 81 out of the 87 seats at stake, including a walkover in the five-member Tanjong Pagar GRC helmed by Lee Kuan Yew, but it won just 60.1% of the total votes cast, the lowest percentage since Singapore achieved independence in 1965.
