Pasir Ris–Punggol Group Representation Constituency (Traditional Chinese: 白沙–榜鵝集選區;Simplified Chinese: 白沙–榜鹅集选区) is a six-member Group Representation Constituency (GRC) in the north-eastern region of Singapore. The constituency consists of Pasir Ris, Punggol and Compassvale in central Sengkang and a small section of Tampines. Formed during the 2001 general election as a five-member GRC, it has been held by the People's Action Party.

With the growth in population of Punggol New Town and Sengkang New Town, the GRC grew from a five-member GRC to a six-member GRC prior to the general election in 2006. In 2011, Punggol East was carved out as a SMC and in 2015, parts of Buangkok and Hougang were split off into Ang Mo Kio GRC, while the northern portions of Punggol were formed to create Punggol Coast ward to retain its six seats.

Pasir Ris–Punggol GRC is led by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean who is also the Coordinating Minister for National Security, and the Secretary General of NTUC and Minister in Prime Minister Office Ng Chee Meng. In 2001, the GRC was only contested by the People's Action Party. In the 2006 elections, its opponent is the Singapore Democratic Alliance.

For the 2011 general election, the incumbent People's Action Party has announced that their team would be led by Teo Chee Hean, and include Senior Parliamentary Secretary Teo Ser Luck, Penny Low, Janil Puthucheary, Gan Thiam Poh and Zainal Sapari.[1]
