**** How GRC Fits Into The Picture Of PAPâs Electoral Strategy <http://kelvinteowrites.wordpress.com/2009/11/30/how-grc-fits-into-the-picture-of-paps-electoral-strategy/>
Kelvin Teo Writes
How the GRC fits into the picture of PAPâs electoral strategy is that the current number of such wards in relation to the number of cabinet positions allows for a sufficient buffer of cabinet ministers, who could be deployed at any point of time to boost the challenge at any GRC where the opposition is deemed to mount the strongest challenge. Is it any wonder that the Workersâ Party A team could be facing more than one cabinet minister if it intends to contest Aljunied again during the next elections? Ditto for the opposition who intends to contest Bishan-Toa Payoh.
