NUS alumni to comprise almost half of 14th Singapore Parliament

The MPs and NCMPs will be sworn in at the first parliamentary session on 24 August

Following Singapore’s General Election, the 14th Singapore Parliament will see 45 NUS alumni among 95 Members of Parliament (MPs) and Non-constituency Members of Parliament (NCMPs). Singapore’s Parliament is tasked with making laws, taking up a critical role to check on the actions and policies of the Government, and scrutinising the State's finances. In these uncertain times, it is expected to steer the country through the COVID-19 crisis and shape Singapore’s future.
