GE2020: Heng Swee Keat Sent To East Coast GRC Over Fear Of Losing To The Workers' Party

GE2020: Heng Swee Keat Sent To East Coast GRC Over Fear Of Losing To The Workers' Party

In a surprise move, Heng Swee Keat showed up at the St Anthony's Canossian nomination centre in Bedok North to file his nomination papers for East Coast GRC. WP has consistently walked the grounds of East Coast GRC. Therefore it comes with no surprise that WP commands a significant percentage of votes as seen in the previous elections, even reaching a high of 45.2% of votes in GE2011. By moving Heng Swee Keat to East Coast GRC, it seems the PAP is hoping that the "4G leader" will be able to shore up whatever remaining support the PAP has in this GRC.

Lawrence Wong finally admitted to reporters on 8 June 2020 that at least half of Singapore's Covid19 cases show no symptoms. In their usual manner, Lawrence Wong and the Covid19 Ministerial Task Force did not disclose how many of the confirmed cases were asymptomatic. What is more startling is that Elections Department (ELD) announced some measures for safe voting on the same day. If the PAP decides to hold a General Elections this year, which many speculate is in July 2020, Singaporean voters may go to the polls while Covid19 is potentially still around.
