Sembawang Group Representation Constituency.

Sembawang Group Representation Constituency (Traditional Chinese: 三巴旺集選區;Simplified Chinese: 三巴旺集选区) is a five-member Group Representation Constituency (GRC) located in the northern area of Singapore. The GRC consists of Sembawang, Woodlands, Marsiling, Admiralty, Canberra and Chong Pang. It also encompasses a section of Singapore's northern territorial waters in the Straits of Johor.

Since its creation in 1988, the GRC has been held by the People's Action Party and it has been uncontested at every general election until the general election in 2006. It is the electoral division in Singapore with the largest number of voters. The Group Representation Constituency was led by Tony Tan (who is currently the 7th President of the Republic of Singapore) until his retirement in 2006.

Currently, Sembawang GRC is led by National Development Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

The Workers' Party initially wanted to contest the GRC in the 2006 general election but ceded it to the Singapore Democratic Party.
