SINGAPORE – Who will be standing in your constituency and which are the seats to watch?
All will be revealed on Nomination Day, which falls on June 30, when the political parties confirm their final line-ups for Singapore’s general election.
It will be a quieter affair this year due to Covid-19 restrictions. Supporters, who would usually wave party flags and cheer for candidates at the nomination centres, will not be able to enter the premises this year.
Readers, however, will not miss out on the highlights of Nomination Day. The Straits Times will bring the event to voters, with full multimedia coverage in print and online, as well as through video and radio.
To help readers stay on top of developments, all news reports and analyses on GE2020 are freely available to all.
