    ...no by-election need to be called unless all the seats in the GRC are vacated.

    Tan said that the government has interpreted section 24(2A) to qualify Article 49(1), such that in respect of a Group Representation Constituency (GRC), no by-election need to be called unless all the seats in the GRC are vacated. For this reason, there was no by-election when former Ang Mo Kio GRC MP Balaji Sadasivan passed away in 2010, he pointed out.

    The above is from our local news channel.

    Shouldn't 'need' be replaced by 'needs'?

    Thanks.

    Yes. The phrase could also be written no by-election need be called but I prefer your version.
    I am not a teacher.
