Note: Madai Puthan Damodaran Nair was offered the first and only Non-constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP) seat, only to reject it. The seat was subsequently offered to Tan Chee Kien, the second best performing but lost the election opposition candidate who ran in Kaki Bukit SMC under the Singapore United Front's banner as auxiliary NCMP who had also promptly declined the offer. This is the only general election that oversees the Opposition candidates had declined NCMP offers since the introduction of NCMP scheme prior to 1984 general elections. The only other election after the introduction of NCMP scheme that sees no NCMP legislator was after the 1991 general election where 4 opposition legislators were elected, which had exceeded the maximum of 3 NCMP seats (Each NCMP seat is reduced when each opposition candidate has been elected for a particular ward).
Notes: The then incumbent Tan Cheng Tong from People's Action Party had attempted to seek another term, but this time round he joined Barisan Sosialis instead and win the election, despite his votes' share was slashed by nearly half.
