Singapore GE updates, July 8: Parties make final pitch to voters | Low Thia Khiang delivers trademark Teochew speech

Dear ST reader,

Political parties contesting GE2020 made a final pitch to voters today as they wrapped up nine days of campaigning.

PAP’s Minister Chan Chun Sing said the months ahead will be difficult, but the Government is clear about what needs to be done.

Workers’ Party chief Pritam Singh said the election is a difficult one, and there is “a real risk of a Parliament dominated completely by elected PAP MPs”.

And here’s a recap of some light-hearted moments of the GE2020 campaign.

On Polling Day, here’s how you can catch all the action and get the latest results.
