It's amazing what a wikipedia entry on a heartland estate in this country can turn up.

Regarding the contest over Cheng San GRC in the 1997 GE:
The vote was deemed too close to call such that the PAP thought it necessary for ministers to visit the polling stations on voting day. The opposition later charged that the PAP had violated the law which prohibits politicians from being in the vicinity of a polling station but the Attorney-General found no impropriety on the part of the ministers as the law only prohibits politicians from the vicinity of the polling station but not in the polling station itself.
