Singapore's ruling People's Action Party (PAP) won a majority in Friday's snap parliamentary elections, official results showed, clearing the way for Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong to form a new government.
The PAP only needed 45 seats to form a new government and crossed that threshold early Saturday as official results were announced by the Elections Department. It has been in power for 56 years, and held 80 of the 87 seats in the previous parliament.
