Straits Times: Eyeing the next general election

Budget debate

“Having good notice will give voters confidence in the boundary redrawing process. It will also give a reasonable time for political parties to do more focused groundwork and consider their candidate line-up.”
Workers’ Party chairman and Non-Constituency MP Sylvia Lim, on why the Electoral Boundaries Review Committee report should be released six months to a year before the general election

“Well, between now and the end of Budget (debate), I am not aware of any committee being appointed. So I can safely tell you that the committee has not been appointed yet. It will be appointed only after the Constitutional change.”
Deputy Prime Minister Wong Kan Seng, dispelling any notion that the report will be out soon
