Seats won by the PAP in the next election

Question

The PAP, or the People's action party, has won a supermajority of more than 2/3rds of seats for every election in Singapore since 1968.

However, since the 2011 elections, the PAP appears to have been slowly losing dominance. In 2011, the PAP won with only 60.14% of votes, a historic low. In 2020, while they received 61.24% of votes, they received a historically low percentage of seats, with 83/89 or 93% of elected seats going to the PAP.

One complicating factor in election predictions is that publishing opinion polls is illegal during the election campaign period. This has resulted in a dearth of information, and makes it relatively difficult to gauge the sentiment of voters.

What percentage of seats will the PAP win in the next Singaporean general election?

This will resolve based on credible media reports. The percentage of seats is defined as the number of seats won by the PAP, divided by the total number of elected Members of Parliament, multiplied by . This excludes Non-constituency Members of Parliament and Nominated Members of Parliament.

The next general election refers to the General elections that must be held before the date of 23 November 2025. The exact date of polling day has not been set yet.
