The electoral division of East Coast has now been altered and extended to include Pedra Branca. You read it right. The small island which is 54km away from mainland Singapore is now part of the GRC. The electoral division already includes islands such as Coney Island, Pulau Ubin and Pulau Tekong. Now it will include one more island, Pedra Branca.
The lighthouse on the island has been operating since 15 Oct 1851. On 23 May 2008, the International Court of Justice awarded the island to Singapore.
We wonder if any of the ministers would conduct any house visits to the island. We look forward to that happening.
