Gerrymandering… to whose advantage?

For the longest time, the opposition has been shouting foul play whenever election boundaries are redrawn.

In the process of setting electoral districts, gerrymandering is a practice that attempts to establish a political advantage for a particular party or group by manipulating district boundaries to create partisan advantaged districts. , gerrymandering is a practice that attempts to establish a political advantage for a particular party or group by manipulating district boundaries to create partisan advantaged districts.

Is it just me or did the new boundaries not seem to be in PAP’s favor? So can it still be considered gerrymandering? 

The other opposition parties should really be thanking the PAP now for giving them this added advantage. But where have they been? Their silence is deafening.

For the longest time they have been saying we should stop changing the electoral boundaries each election. Today, when the boundaries are in their favor they have changed their tune? Double standards indeed.
