General Elections 2020 (GE 2020)
Despite Covid-19, it has not stopped the General Elections from happening. General Elections 2020 is going to be a close fight in many districts.
As Covid-19 is still very much present in Singapore, the fight during elections has been placed on another group, social media. Social media will play a very big role in the elections this time round. Especially with no rallies to be held, social media is very important in spreading the information to the public.
Will people who are not technologically savvy be able to get the information that they require? Will the parties be able to spread their message?
Jamus Lim from Workers’ Party won over the internet during his english live debate with all the other political parties. He was not thrown off course despite the tough arguments going on. After the debate, you know that he is now in the limelight.
It seems like Workers’ Party will not only be able to keep their favourite district, they may also be on their way to winning more!
Ong Ye Kung from People’s Action Party on the other hand, handled the chinese live debate effortlessly. He was able to display a good command of Chinese and was able to engage the viewers. However, the traction for the Chinese debate was not as high as the English debate.
One of the most noticeable things was that Workers’ Party did not send a representative for the chinese debate.
