SDA will "make use of new technology" to reach out to residents






SINGAPORE: The Singapore Democratic Alliance (SDA) will not be holding an on site rally for the Punggol East by-election on Sunday.

The Party's candidate Desmond Lim said the party will "make use of new technology" to reach out to residents.

This will likely to be in the form an online rally which will be streamed.

Mr Lim was speaking to the media on the sidelines of a visit to the Arulmigu Velmurugan Gnanamuneeswarar Temple at Rivervale Crescent.

He said cost was an important factor in the decision, made unanimously by party members.

He said running an election is costly, and the party is small, with limited resources.

Mr Lim said using new media will also reach out to Punggol East residents, many of whom are younger and are more tech-savvy.

He added the party would release details of this arrangement "very soon".

Mr Lim added that the decision was not because the party could not get their rally application approved.
