Dear A.S.S. Editor
WP Chairman, Ms Sylvia Lim, said that The Workers' Party has continued to thrive with a renewed strength, despite going through some "difficult and trying times. This was part of her speech during the opening of WP's new $870,000 headquarters at the Teambuild Centre along Geylang Road on Friday evening.
The opening of the HQ coincided with WP's 60th Anniversary celebrations. The HQ, with a small floor space of 110 sq m, replaces its old HQ at Syed Alwi Road, which was vacated in December last year. The political party was formed in 1957, with its first headquarters along Delta Road.
"What you see here may just be a modest 110 sq m office space, but to us in the Workers' Party, it represents the bittersweet fruit of what our senior members and supporters had fought so hard for," said a statement from the party's assistant secretary-general, Pritam Singh and treasurer and chairman of the party's HQ committee, Dennis Tan.
