Ang Mo Kio Group Representation Constituency (Chinese: 宏茂桥集选区; Malay: Kawasan Undi Perwakilan Berkumpulan Ang Mo Kio; Tamil: அங் மோ கியோ குழுத் தொகுதி) is a five-member Group Representation Constituency (GRC) in the north eastern region of Singapore. The constituency encompasses the majority of Ang Mo Kio (Teck Ghee, Cheng San-Seletar, portions of Yio Chu Kang), Seletar Hills, the northern half of Serangoon North, a portion of northern Hougang, Jalan Kayu and a portion of Fernvale. Prior to the 2020 Singaporean general election, the entirety of Fernvale was redrawn and divided into the Fernvale and Jalan Kayu divisions which previously was represented in Sengkang West SMC since 2006.There are five divisions in the GRC- Teck Ghee, Ang Mo Kio-Hougang, Fernvale, Cheng San-Seletar and Jalan Kayu.

The western portion of the GRC consists of parts of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve while in the northeastern corner, it borders the Straits of Johor with two reclaimed islands, Pulau Punggol Barat and Pulau Punggol Timor. The northeast also includes the Sengkang Floating Wetland.

As of the 2020 general election, the GRC remains a stronghold of the People's Action Party. It is currently led by Lee Hsien Loong, prime minister of Singapore and secretary-general of the People's Action Party.

History

In the 2001 general election, the constituency was enlarged to include most parts of the Cheng San Group Representation Constituency, while during the general election in 2006, the Yio Chu Kang division – where the centre of Ang Mo Kio town is located – was hived off as a Single Member Constituency (SMC). In 2011, Yio Chu Kang was returned to Ang Mo Kio GRC, while the Sengkang West division was carved out into an SMC, which was managed by the Ang Mo Kio Town Council until its dissolution in 2020.

Nee Soon South was part of the GRC until 2011 and Kebun Baru until 2015 – both were transferred to the Nee Soon GRC. In their place, parts of northern Hougang were progressively introduced into the GRC – Aljunied–Hougang (renamed eventually to Ang Mo Kio-Hougang) was introduced in place of Nee Soon South, and Punggol South (renamed eventually to Sengkang South) in place of Kebun Baru. In the 2020 elections, Kebun Baru and Yio Chu Kang became SMCs while the GRC absorbed the Fernvale portion of Sengkang West SMC. In return, the Anchorvale portion of Sengkang West SMC was subsumed into the newly-created Sengkang Group Representation Constituency, and Ang Mo Kio GRC's seats were reduced by one to five seats.

From 2015 to June 2020 before Parliament was dissolved, Ang Mo Kio GRC was led by the third Prime Minister of Singapore and PAP secretary-general Lee Hsien Loong, who has been the MP for the Teck Ghee district since 1984, and co-led by Senior Minister of State Dr Koh Poh Koon. The GRC has been held by the People's Action Party since its formation in 1991, and was uncontested in every general election until 2006.
