HALIMAH INFRINGED ELECTION LAWS BY SETTING UP WEBSITE?

According to the rules by ELD (http://www.eld.gov.sg/candidate_parliamentary_campaign.html), candidates can only start campaigning after close of nomination.

Halimah has launched a website with the campaign slogan “do it good, do it together”.

She wrote “A President should unify the nation… blah blah blah…”, and “this is the kind of President I would like to be”.

Straits Times also reported the launch of her campaign website (http://www.straitstimes.com/politics/halimah-launches-official-website) on 25 August, well before close of nomination.

Is Halimah Yacob infringing election law?
