The video, released a day after President Halimah Yacob dissolved Parliament, comprised familiar faces like incoming Aljunied GRC MPs Sylvia Lim and Pritam Singh, who’s also WP main addition to Non-Constituency MPs Dennis Tan and Leon Perera.
Former Punggol East MP Lee Li Lian, 41, and two associates that had been part of this group which contested Nee Soon GRC in 2015 – sales adviser Cheryl Loh and Aljunied-Hougang Town Council councilor Kenneth Foo, 43 – were featured.
Others were fresh faces not having been officially published but have been observed on the floor at WP occasions.
They comprise economics professor Jamus Lim, 44; social activist Raeesah Khan, 27, who’s the son of former presidential aspirant Farid Khan; attorney Fadli Fawzi, who’s a city councilor in the Aljunied-Hougang Town Council; marketing executive Nicole Seah, 33, who had been a National Solidarity Party candidate at the 2011 election; along with ecological geographer Yudhishthra Nathan.
From the approximately six-minute-long movie, the party members received a summary of their outreach and floor efforts through time and emphasized the need for diversity in Parliament.
Titled The Workers’ Party GE2020: Make Your Vote Count, the most recent movie follows a 15-second teaser clip the celebration uploaded onto its social networking stations on Tuesday evening. Additionally, it comes a day before WP would be to start officially introducing applicants.

With GE2020 being fought against the background of this Covid-19 pandemic, secure distancing principles to limit the magnitude of public parties to five individuals imply conventional campaign principles such as mass rallies cannot be held.
