Bukit Batok Single Member Constituency Wikipedia
Bukit Batok Single Member Constituency (Chinese: 武吉巴督单选区; Malay: Kawasan Undi Perseorangan Bukit Batok; Tamil: புக்கிட் பாத்தோ தனித் தொகுதி) is a constituency covering a portion of Bukit Batok in Singapore. It existed from 1972 to 1997, when it was merged with Bukit Timah GRC. It was carved out as an SMC again ahead of the 2015 general elections.
In March 2016, the elected MP for Bukit Batok SMC, Mr David Ong of the PAP, resigned due to an extra-marital affair with a fellow PAP member, precipitating the Bukit Batok by-election. On 7 May 2016, Murali Pillai won the seat of Bukit Batok against Singapore Democratic Party secretary-general, Chee Soon Juan by a vote count of 61.2% to 38.8%.
