This is an interesting video that explains what goes on behind an election campaign in Singapore.
"There is an old saying in warfare that amatuers deal with strategy and professionals with logistics"
- Dr. Cunha
"The well oiled PAP election machine can get its election posters on all lamp-post in contested wards within 24 hrs....in 2006 one of the better organised opposition can do it within 36 hours....on day 5 of the election campaign one of the less organised opposition party was still struggling to get its posters up" - Dr. Cunha.
"In 2006 the WP team in Ang Moh Kio had 50 volunteers during the campaign. ...he (WP volunteer) claimed the PAP team led by the prime minister had 2000 volunters" - Dr. Cunha
If you want your party to win and represent you in parliament, there is more you can do than voting for them. For the opposition parties competing against a well oil engine with vast resources, they need many hands to help run the campaign. Posters don't magically hang themselves on lamp-posts, flyers don't distribute themselves,and it is in our hands to make the playing field level.
Those who are ready to do more, you can sign up through the party's websites.
