Singapore tables bill for 'safe' elections during coronavirus outbreak

Singapore's government has tabled a bill to ensure that of a general election were called during the COVID-19 outbreak, it could be held safely.

The city-state began a month-long partial lockdown on Tuesday to try and curb a sharp rise in coronavirus cases and does not have to go to the polls until early 2021.

However, the government, which controls nearly all the seats in parliament, has said it is not ruling out holding the ballot before the deadline.

Some opposition parties have said that would be a health risk.

The Elections Department said the temporary arrangements would "ensure the safety of voters, candidates and election officials, should the next General Election (GE) take place amid the COVID-19 situation."
