History[edit]

Between 1988 and 2011, at the time Chua Chu Kang GRC was formerly called Hong Kah GRC, Chua Chu Kang SMC was one of the oldest surviving constituencies in Singapore and the only one to have both remained intact and existed before Singapore’s independence, existed since 1959 when Singapore gained full self-governance from its colonial British Government.

In 2001, Bukit Gombak SMC was absorbed into the former Hong Kah GRC with the town council being Hong Kah Town Council. In 2015, Yew Tee was absorbed into the newly created Marsiling–Yew Tee GRC.

The 2011 elections saw the reformation of both wards with every ward of Hong Kah GRC and Chua Chu Kang being merged into Chua Chu Kang GRC, with the exception of Hong Kah North ward that had been crafted out to become an SMC.

In 2020, the rest of Tengah were moved from Chua Chu Kang GRC to Hong Kah North SMC and all of the Nanyang were shifted to West Coast GRC. The Western Water Catchment, Ama Keng, Wrexham, Poyan, Sarimbun, Lim Chu Kang and Murai were shifted from Nanyang to Keat Hong division.
