How to lose deposit in Singapore General Elections 2015?

Under the Parliamentary Elections Act, each candidate’s deposit is 8 per cent of the total allowances paid to a Member of Parliament in the preceding year, rounded to the nearest $500.

The deposit, however, will be forfeited if a candidate in a single- member constituency or a team in a group representation constituency receives less than 12.5 per cent of the votes in their constituency.

Samir Salim Neji stood as a independent candidate for Bukit Batok SMC. For sample count, he received 0% votes.

Singapore Democratic Alliance chief Desmond Lim Bak Chuan lost his deposit twice in two elections contesting in Punggol East – first in the 2011 General Election and then in the 2013 by-election held there.

Both times he was the worst performer in three-way fights.
