The sample count has been a strong indication of the final result in past elections.

Sample counts have a 95 per cent chance of being within four percentage points of the final count.

As this is a sample count, the election result could be different. Counting is still in progress.  The public should wait for the announcement of the election result by the Returning Officer, Mr Tan Meng Dui, which will be broadcast 'live' on television.

Tan Jee Say was previously the secretary-general of opposition party Singaporeans First but dissolved the party on June 25.

On June 29 — one day before Nomination Day — he indicated his interest to join SDP, and was confirmed the following day as the party's candidate

During the campaigning period, both PAP and SDP issued competing letters to Holland-Bukit Timah GRC residents, laying out their case to voters while also making clear the disagreements between both sides.

In the 2015 general election, PAP won the GRC by 66.62 per cent against SDP.

This article will be updated with the final result when it is announced.
