SINGAPORE: Candidates will be able to apply for police permits to use perambulating vehicles fitted with loudspeakers to deliver pre-recorded campaign messages in the run up to the General Election, the police said on Sunday.

"Allowing candidates to speak from the back of perambulating vehicles would amount to a de facto rally and will attract a crowd around them," the Elections Department said earlier this month.

The police will also not grant permits for thank you vehicular processions after Polling Day, as large group gatherings are not allowed under the current Ministry of Health guidelines.

Applications for a permit to use a perambulating vehicle can be submitted online by candidates or their election agents.

Applicants who have difficulties submitting their online application can call the Police Elections Permits Office.
