Tampines Group Representation Constituency.
Not to be confused with the defunct pre-independence era ward called Tampines Single Member Constituency that existed from 1959 to 1988. This article is describing a present ward in Tampines.

Tampines Group Representation Constituency (Traditional Chinese: 淡濱尼集選區;Simplified Chinese: 淡滨尼集选区) is a five-member Group Representation Constituency (GRC) in the eastern region of Singapore. The GRC encompasses Tampines with five sub-constituencies, namely Tampines East, Tampines West, Tampines Central, Tampines North and Tampines Changkat.

Tampines GRC is led by Education Minister Heng Swee Keat after ex-Minister for National Development Mah Bow Tan left the Cabinet following the 2011 general elections.

Tampines GRC has faced a contest in every general election except the 1997 general election, in which the National Solidarity Party was disqualified. In the 2001 and 2006 general elections, the PAP's opponent was the Singapore Democratic Alliance.
