SINGAPORE — Polling Day is set for Friday, 10 July and Nomination Day is on next Tuesday, 30 June, after Parliament was dissolved on Tuesday (23 June).

In a national address on his Facebook page and on free-to-air television and radio, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong explained the reasons in calling for the General Election now, citing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The dissolution of Parliament by President Halimah Yacob on Lee’s advice comes more than three months after the release of the Electoral Boundaries Review Committee report.
