A total of 2,594,740 Singaporeans are eligible to vote in the next General Election (GE), according to the Elections Department (ELD).

The current figures mark an increase of 134,256 electors from the 2,460,484 of eligible voters recorded by ELD prior to the last election in 2015.

In a statement on Mon (15 Apr), ELD said that the Registers of Electors have been certified are now “available for public inspection”.

Singaporeans may check their particulars in the registers via the following channels:

  • Online at the Elections Department website;
  • At community centres/clubs with their NRIC/passport;
  • At Singapore overseas missions that serve as overseas registration centres with their NRIC/passport; and
  • At the Elections Department with their NRIC/passport.

Citizens whose names were removed from the Registers for failing to vote at a past election may still apply to have their names restored to the registers, so that they can vote at future elections, added ELD.

However, citizens who wish to have their name restored in the Registers are encouraged to apply early, as the ELD will not accept applications from the date the Writ for an election is issued.

Applications will only be reopened after Nomination Day if the election is not contested, or until after Polling Day if a poll is to be taken.

Singaporeans residing abroad for an aggregate of at least 30 days between 1 Feb 2016 and 31 Jan 2019 and whose names are available in the Registers may continue to register as overseas voters at one of the designated overseas polling stations if they have not done so after 1 Feb this year.

Citizens overseas who wish to check their particulars in the Registers may do so at Singapore missions serving as polling stations in New York, Washington DC, San Francisco, London, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Canberra and Dubai, reported The Straits Times.

“However, in accordance with the law, applications will not be processed during the period from the 3rd day after the Writ for an election is issued,” said ELD.

The Department added that such applications will only be processed after Nomination Day if the election is uncontested, or until after Polling Day if a poll is to be taken.

人力部统计称同一就业条件 男女雇员薪资差距六巴仙

女性与男性薪资差距一直被视为职场上的性别薪资歧视,即使同一份就业条件,有时女性薪资比男性来得更低。根据人力部调查显示,男性与女性之间的性别薪酬差距为6巴仙。 人力部首次统计经调整男女收入中位数差距(Adjusted Median Gender Pay Gap),以评估同样就业条件的男女收入相差多少。 根据调查显示,在同样的年资、学历、职业、行业以及工作时长中,男性与女性在2018年的收入中位数差距为6巴仙,相交2002年的8.8巴仙,有着明显的下降。 根据今天发布的调查报告,同样年龄、学历、职业、行业,以及工作时长的男女,2018年收入中位数差距为6巴仙,比2002年的8.8巴仙小。比起美国(8巴仙)、加拿大(7.7巴仙至8.3巴仙)和中国(18.3巴仙),新加坡也有着明显的差距。 此研究是透过25岁至44岁的新加坡人和永久居民,共3万3千名家庭所提供的数据,研究人员根据调查对象各项因素包括年龄、教育、职业、工时等进行统计对比后所得出的薪酬差距结果。 调查显示,劳动力市场中的那女薪酬差距中位数是有所增加。 然而,研究也发现,职业扮演了薪酬差距中最关键的角色,从2002年的16巴仙至2018年的43巴仙,其增长率是逐年增加。最主要的原因为,由于男性占高薪职业的比例日益渐高,而女性则占据低薪职业的比例也增多。 换言之,尽管女性已经提升了职业水平,改善了劳动市场,但由于高薪职业更倾向男性,因此职业工资的性别差异也愈来愈大。…
