Bukit Panjang Single Member Constituency (Chinese: 武吉班让单选区; Malay: Kawasan Undi Perseorangan Bukit Panjang; Tamil: புக்கிட் பாஞ்சாங் தனித்தொகுதி) is a Single Member Constituency located in the western area of Singapore. The seat consists the main portion of Bukit Panjang and was reformed in the 2006 electoral boundary redraw. Bukit Panjang SMC existed from 1959 to 1991 when it was absorbed into the Sembawang Group Representation Constituency. In 2001, the seat was moved from Sembawang GRC to Holland-Bukit Panjang Group Representation Constituency. The 2006 redrawn boundaries carved out Bukit Panjang to form the current constituency and the GRC was renamed Holland-Bukit Timah Group Representation Constituency.

History

Bukit Panjang had overgrown since 1984 and had started their life in 1976.

By the time Bukit Panjang New Town grows, it had grown until it had exceeded number of voters in 1991 general election (and it compromises Woodlands New Town), it had split up in 1997 (into Marsiling constituency) and now it left only the Bukit Panjang, until it divides into Bukit Panjang, Cashew and Zhenghua constituencies in 2001.

Elections in 1950s

Note 2: MIC is allied with Singapore's UMNO and MCA chapters, similar to its Malaysian counterpart with the exception of not using the alliance symbol which was the reason for the elections department of Singapore to view T. T. K. Alexander as an independent candidate.
