Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew's People's Action Party (PAP) won a landslide victory on Sunday in Singapore's general election, taking all but one seat.

Final results showed PAP won a five-year mandate, taking 69 out of 70 seats it contested. Last week, the other 11 seats in the 81-member house were awarded to the ruling party as no opposition party wanted to contest them.Among those returned were Prime Minister Lee, unchallenged leader of Singapore since the island's independence in 1959.

Only one opposition candidate, Chiam See Tong, was returned to parliament.
