Singapore GE2020: Make your vote count to prevent PAP from taking all seats, says WP

Jun 29, 2020 | 🚀 Fathership
There is a real risk that the opposition could be wiped out at the election, said Workers' Party chief Pritam Singh, as he urged voters to make their votes count and prevent the ruling People's Action Party from sweeping all 93 seats at the coming polls.

Emphasising the need for checks and balances in Parliament, he said: "We need elected Workers' Party MPs to be voted into Parliament so they can serve the public in Parliament and at the constituency through the town council. Elected opposition MPs strengthen our democracy and our political processes... Don't rely on someone else to vote for the Workers' Party."

The WP manifesto laid out the party's vision for Singapore along four themes: social and education policies that help Singaporeans achieve their dreams; dignified jobs for workers; building "a home we want" by tackling cost-of-living issues; and creating robust political, governance and defence institutions.

CALL TO ELECT WP CANDIDATES. We need elected Workers' Party MPs to be voted into Parliament so that they can serve the public... Elected opposition MPs strengthen our democracy and our political processes... Don't rely on someone else to vote for the Workers' Party.

He said one thing he would change about Singapore, if he could, is the "Super majority of one party in Parliament" that allows the PAP to "Unilaterally change" the Singapore Constitution.
