The Electoral Boundaries report was released yesterday. This begins the unofficial countdown to the Singapore General Elections, expected in just a few weeks’ time. Of late, there have been lots of goodies announced in the Budget, to be dispensed presumably days before Polling Day. There has also been a television ad campaign featuring a remix of the song, “Home” by Kit Chan, which is usually only runs during the National Day period in August.
I love the song “Home”. It movingly conveys the message that Singapore is our true home, where our family, friends and loved ones are — and where our heart remains. Many Singaporeans have gotten disillusioned with songs like these, because of how the current ruling party has diluted the Singaporean identity over the past 10 years. I choose not to be disillusioned, but to stand up and fight. This is why I joined the Workers’ Party and why I intend to help the Workers’ Party win as many Parliamentary seats as we can during the upcoming elections.
My friends, readers and fellow Singaporeans, this is the time where your actions can make a real difference to the future of Singapore. Don’t let this opportunity slip away. We need all hands on the deck now. The Workers’ Party is looking to recruit as many volunteers as possible to help in our election campaign. WP is looking to contest possibly 4 single-member constituencies and 4 group representation constituencies. Party activists have been working hard on the ground for the last five years since the end of the 2006 election, but these next few weeks will be a particularly intense and critical time.
