East Coast GRC is a four-member GRC in the eastern areas of Singapore. The areas of the GRC consists of Bedok, Changi-Simei, Kampong Chai Chee and Siglap.

East Coast GRC is helmed by the Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat together with Minister in Prime Minister's Office and Second Minister for Foreign Affairs and Education Maliki Osman.

​HistoryEdit

East Coast GRC was formed in 1997 as a six-member constituency. It was formed by the merger of Bedok GRC (Bedok, Fengshan, Kampong Chai Chee and Siglap), Changi SMC and Eunos GRC (Kaki Bukit) in 1997.

Joo Chiat was formerly part of the constituency until 2001.

Huang Wen also stood at Bedok/Kampong Chai Chee area from 2010 to 2012, but she was moved over to Blk 229 Tampines Street 21.

A large portion of Kaki Bukit and 60% of the Kampong Chai Chee was transferred from East Coast GRC to Marine Parade GRC, and saw the removal of Chew Heng Ching, Tan Soo Khoon and Lee Yock Suan due to the advanced age in 2006, followed by S Jayakumar and Abdullah Tarmugi in 2011. It was downsized to five members due to the redrawing in 2006. The offshore Coney Island was transferred to Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC in 2015.

Most of the Mok Family were removed in phases due to advanced age, with the first - Ernest Mok and Victor Tang being cleared in 2006 because they were retired in 1996 from Singapore Airlines and joined the company that does not earn money, Pasttimes Clocks. The remainder were being cleared in 2011 and Jeremy Mok was transferred to another constituency area, somewhere in Jurong GRC/Chua Chu Kang GRC. In the 2015 general election, Fengshan SMC finally broke up from the constituency, leaving it with four members of the family. Samuel Lee was finally retired.

In 2011 and 2015, the PAP received numerous close fights with the Workers' Party but the former won in both elections in the end, as though the oppositions joined NCMP various times. In 2020, East Coast GRC was the second closest GRC. However, WP candidates did not enter parliament as NCMPs this time as the result in West Coast GRC was closer.
