Marine Parade GRC is led by Emeritus Senior Minister and former prime minister Goh Chok Tong.

Before the creation of Marine Parade GRC, he had been the Member of Parliament for the Marine Parade single-seat constituency since being first elected in 1976. The GRC saw its fiercest contest in the general election in 2011 where National Solidarity Party candidates led by Nicole Seah managed to get over 43% of the vote despite walkovers in the previous three general elections. Before 2011, it remained uncontested after the 1992 by-election which saw a four-way contest involving the National Solidarity Party, Singapore Democratic Party and Singapore Justice Party (now part of the Singapore Democratic Alliance).
