GE candidates have their say

Here's what some candidates have to say about the General Elections and their plans on winning the hearts and minds of voters.

"Let this be a contest of ideas, let this be a contest of programs and see who can deliver a better future for Singaporeans, for our residents."
-- Tin Pei Ling, People's Action Party, Marine Parade GRC candidate

"We are really going on "heartware" because to me this election is about my relationship with the people in Potong Pasir, it's about my commitment and my loyalty to them."
-- Sitoh Yih Pin, People's Action Party, Potong Pasir SMC candidate

"I'm very confident, I've been serving the people of Potong Pasir for 27 years... I've been with my husband for six elections, the only difference is that I'm standing as a candidate now."

--Lim Biow Chuan, People's Action Party, Mountbatten SMC candidate

"The current policies have caused hardships and anxieties to people and I feel that somebody has to got to stand up and make the changes.

I can do something different in Mountbatten."
-- Jeanette Chong-Aruldoss, National Solidarity Party, Mountbatten SMC candidate
