Singapore Presidential Elections - Live coverage of results

Presidential candidate Dr Tan Cheng Bock has said there could be a recount as results indicate that he and Dr Tony Tan are neck and neck in the race.

Speaking to reporters as he was leaving the Elections Department for Jurong East Stadium, he said the mood in his camp is good.

"People may realise I am the one who can unify all Singaporeans because I'm not a proxy to any party," he added.

Dr Tony Tan has declined to speak to the media before the results are out.

He is at the Toa Payoh Stadium with his wife, children and their spouses, as well as some of his grandchildren.

Meanwhile, Nicole Seah who is supporting Mr Tan Jee Say, said Mr Tan is no longer in the running.

However, Mr Tan said he cannot concede defeat until results are known.

"I want to thank all my supporters. Whether we win or lose, we have already won, with our hearts."

From Channel NewsAsia, "PE: There could be a recount, says Tan Cheng Bock".
