Nee Soon South Single Member Constituency (Traditional Chinese: 義順南單選區; Simplified Chinese: 义顺南单选区) is a defunct single member constituency consisting of Yishun's Neighourhood 8 (Khatib),part of Neighbourhood 7 and private residential areas along Sembawang Road(near Sembawang Army Camp).It was formed after Yishun had been developed since 1988 when the pre-independence era Nee Soon ward was broken up into several wards. It was absorbed into Ang Mo Kio GRC in 1997 after the Singapore Democratic Party had lost narrowly there in 1991 elections until 2011 when it was released and together with other wards in Yishun, it formed the present Nee Soon GRC.
