SDP NEED TO WALK THE GROUND MORE IN SEMBAWANG GRC

Hello,

I support the opposition but I'm quite worried that SDP may not succeed at winning seats with the current walkabout strategy.

SDP announced on January 19 that they will do their first walkabout since they launched their GE campaign. The walkabout was scheduled yesterday, 25th Jan from 8 am to 12 pm and the selected places were Sembawang GRC and Holland-Bukit Timah GRC.

It is good that SDP is focussing on walkabouts but I honestly have to say that their method isn't good.

How do you expect to make significant inroads in two GRCs in just 4 hours?!!

Do they know the size of Sembawang GRC? All the time they focus on Marsiling and never Woodlands or Admiralty or Sembawang. SDP just visited the Marsiling market, talked to media and poof! They appeared at Woodlands Street 31 next. Did they walk from Marsiling market to Woodlands Street 31 and meet residents along the way?

No, of course not.

The answer is here:

They just take a chartered bus from one location to another. That's how they moved from point A to B within Sembawang GRC and then moved on to selected locations in Holland-Bukit Timah GRC.

Takes time to set up the bear, so how do you expect the person inside to walk from point A to B even in one GRC?

No wonder my friends in Marsiling have hardly seen SDP despite SDP spending so much time in Marsiling at the expense of all other wards in Sembawang GRC.

I thought SDP's outreach will be more intense as the GE nears, but alas this is not the case. I just feel that their grassroots outreach is not as intense as that of WP in East Coast, Joo Chiat, etc. Quite worried that for SDP, it's all about taking photos at a few selected locations (to show they are working the ground) and talking to media.

We need some SDP candidates to be elected to deny PAP the 2/3 majority. They should just aim to cover at least half of one GRC before the GE. But now it looks like it's just token visits to markets.
