Are we less than a month away from the General Elections?

Last month (4 Sep), it was announced that the Prime Minister has announced the formation of the Electoral Boundaries Review Committee (EBRC). This was the clearest indication that the elections are imminent, as this would mean redrawing the constituencies that are to be contested.

In Parliament last week (7 Oct), Workers’ Party Secretary-General Pritam Singh asked the Prime Minister when was the formed. To that, the Minister for Trade and Industry Chan Chun Sing replied on behalf that the EBRC was formed on the 1 Aug.

Under the Lee Hsien Loong government, the committee took anywhere between two (GE2015) to four months (GE2011 & GE2006) to release its report. Thereafter, Parliament will be dissolved and the Writ of Election will be issued. Again, the time-frame for dissolving Parliament has been from one month (GE2015) to two months (GE2011 & GE2006).

This will be followed by Nomination day, a period of campaigning and Polling day.

Before Minister Chan’s Parliamentary response, political observers have already speculated that a November or December elections are most likely to be the case.

Now that we have more information, we can make an educated guess. Given the above, the EBRC report could potentially be released already – we would not know given the lack of details – or is about to be released. Assuming the fastest scenario wherein the EBRC report has already been released and the fastest scenario for parliament to be dissolved, a GE could take place in less than a month’s time?

What do TRE readers think?

  • opposition dude:

    Don’t worry when the next GE is lah, the more important thing is that the opposition parties are ready and made preparations liao. PSP has started theirs so just assume the rest are as well.

    I would not be surprised if it was held in the last week of November since it would be the school holidays by then. Remember when some schools were used for voters to vote? All were during the school holidays if I remember correctly.

    pap media tv states times all no end mentioning S$33m+.

    when the true fact already out many months ago, of the S#33m+, only a very small sum, in the thousands, is questionable by pap court.

    why the intentional falsehood about S$33m+ when it is actually not even half a million?

    further more, even if it is TRULY S$33m+ which it is not, WP can crowd fund it within a few days.

    so what the ffff is all the pap lies about unless GE2019 is very soon?

  • Bobo:

    Just don’t understand and forever don’t understand elites political pattern. PAP has been the complete winner and will still be the gov for next 50years (as assured by millions of Singaporeans till today). Why are they still so afraid of our oppositions? Like PM said, Singaporeans should learn to embrace foreigners, so they should show their role to embrace any oppositions. After all, the oppositions have no capability of stealing his lunch box for sure.

    Animals have the natural ability to Evolve after long time. Humans are essentially animals in it’s own right. I suspect they have evolved to be INTOLERANT of Change. They are misguided and misinterpreted our Constitution which empowers us to replace the gov if we want to.

  • Seriously?:

    I hope the Government and PAP draw the right lessons from unrest in other places.

    The liberal economic system led by the Anglo Saxons is broken. And big business has had its way too much for way too long. Big business, over in the West in the East and here, are the exceedingly selfish and greedy monsters that many people are only recently starting to recognise. Most of them deserve no love, no support, should be broken up, and cut down to size. Without an adequately critical and thinking competition commission, this is the sort of system we will get – big devils using money and talent to apply a thin and shameless veneer to their unbelievably greedy ways, and with Governments stuck in the light touch mode accepting these ridiculous rationales.

    I, for one, have no love for large corporations, big tech, and even less love for large Asian GLCs. And would not be the least bit sorry to see the whole lot go.

    It will not be easy to change things, given the kind of totally rotten hoodlums the US and UK have as President and Prime Minister. The entire system favours those who have come earlier and accumulated over decades. And newcomers can play also, but have to take insanely large risks, and hope for calm weather (as in the past 10 years for big tech).

    But it has to be done. And the ways of the US and the UK cannot be taken wholesale any longer.

    While the HK riots are at times unjustifiably violent, I do not blame them at all. Their Government is talking garbage theories all the time in support of the status quo, and often bought over to the views of the local tycoons. There is nothing in it for every one else.

    Hat off and salute the Hongkees, esp the common folks and those PEACEFUL protesters! Period. To HELL to those highly paid hooligans(paid by the Hidden Hands)!

    Hopefully, the RESET button is ACTIVATED when the ongoing chaotic and dire situation is FINALLY declared over. By then, HOPEFULLY the current ridiculous artificially inflated home prices will DROP by say, 40-60%. For MOST Hongkees, they still have about 28 years more before the autonomous status expire. For MOST, Their roots are more or less established and planted in HK. When and NOT IF those Big Snakes who have for donkey years CONTROLLED and MANIPULATED the housing market and the Filthy Rich LEAVE HK, it’s a matter of TIME the RESET BUTTON WILL BE ACTIVATED. By THEN, hopefully MOST COMMON FOLK Hongkees will be ABLE FINALLY TO OWN A REASONABLE PRICED PIGEON HOLE. And HOPEFULLY, after 2047, the Central Government May decide to EXTEND the Autonomous Status for ANOTHER 50 Years!
