SINGAPORE - The Elections Department has released the sample count results for all 13 SMCs and 16 GRCs, which give an early indication of the possible results for the electoral divisions. 

The ruling People's Action Party (PAP) is leading in all constituencies except for two: Aljunied GRC and Hougang SMC. In Aljunied, WP is leading with 52 per cent, PAP 48 per cent. In Hougang, WP is leading with 58 per cent, PAP 42 per cent.

The other ward with a close margin is WP-held Punggol East, where the PAP is leading with 51 per cent, the WP 49 per cent.

The sample count results are not final, the Elections Department has stressed.

This is the first time the sample count is made public, and the move is aimed at forestalling speculation as the official counts are underway.

The sample results will be derived from a count of 100 ballot papers from each polling station within a constituency, soon after voting ends at 8pm. There are 832 polling stations islandwide.
