Moulmein-Kallang Group Representation Constituency
Moulmein-Kallang Group Representation Constituency (Traditional Chinese: 摩棉-加冷集選區; Simplified Chinese: 摩棉-加冷集选区) is a four-member Group Representation Constituency, and therefore an electoral district composed of several city suburbs surrounding the Central Area of Singapore.
Moulmein-Kallang GRC is led by Minister of Communications and Information Yaacob Ibrahim who is also Minister in charge of Muslim Affairs.
The ward saw a contest in the 2011 general election between the incumbent People's Action Party and a rookie team from the Workers' Party of Singapore. The National Solidarity Party had expressed interest in contesting the constituency, but dropped out to avoid a three-cornered fight. The PAP emerged victor with 44,828 votes or 58.56% of the total ballot for the electoral division. Incidentally, this was the highest vote percentage for the PAP in a Workers' Party contested constituency.
