What it should have been

Our reports yesterday, "Smaller GRC, more seats could see more contests" and "'Fair timeframe' no longer a factor?" said that in 2011, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong announced the formation of the Electoral Boundaries Review Committee on the day that he convened it. This is inaccurate.

Mr Lee's disclosure of its formation was made in October 2010 and only when the media asked him about it. There is no formal requirement for an announcement to be made when the committee is formed.

We are sorry for the error.
