Will PAP be returned to power on Nomination day?

So tomorrow is Nomination day for Singapore.  It will be such an interesting day, as we will then know whether PAP will once again be returned to power on Nomination day.  This was a tactic devised by opposition party to create a by-election effect.  Since Singaporean was afraid to vote down PAP, by not contesting more than half of the electoral seats, PAP will be returned to power on Nomination day, thus Singaporean will be more willing to vote in opposition candidates.

This by-election effect was created in 1991 and that year the opposition won 4 seats out of the possible 84, the highest number of seats ever won by the opposition.  This year, however, the opposition have decided not to use this tactic anymore and they have decided to contest 55 out of the total 84 seats.  But this might be just a tactic used by the opposition, all will only be confirmed on Nomination day, which is tomorrow.

We will know by noon tomorrow and it will be an interesting day.
