SINGAPORE - There is a need to reach out to less tech-savvy elderly residents amid the e-rallies and other election events taking place online due to the Covid-19 pandemic, said Workers' Party East Coast GRC candidate Dylan Ng. He was speaking to The Straits Times during a walkabout at the market and hawker centre at 58 New Upper Changi Road, which is near the People's Action Party headquarters.

The WP team is up against a PAP one led by Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat, 59.

On Friday, the WP team said during a media doorstop at a walkabout in another part of Bedok that going up against Mr Heng's team would be "An uphill battle".

Mr Heng has left his Tampines stronghold to beef up the East Coast GRC team, replacing the retiring Mr Lim Swee Say as the constituency's anchor minister.

Ms Seah said: "What we need to do is to ensure the WP team continues to push very hard to make every vote count. We recognise the very strong possibility that there is going to be a 'freak' election result that might potentially wipe out the opposition, and especially all of the hard work and ground that the WP has gained over the years in serving the residents."
