"Yes, I'm retiring from civil service after spending the last 36 years in the civil service. I've thoroughly enjoyed my tour in the civil service, in the people sector, and really would thank a lot fellow colleagues across the civil service for the experience," he said.

In an exclusive interview with RazorTV, Mr Yam talks about his role as Returning Officer and gives us a glimpse of his busy work day on polling day for the Punggol East by-election.
