Singapore needs change. We start this on 23 February 2019.
That's when the SDP kicks off our campaign for the next general elections. It's when we announce our plans and preparations for the next big poll when Singaporeans will crucially determine the direction of our country's future.
The PAP is coming under withering criticism for its policy blunders and leadership failures. Citizens are beginning to question whether the current crop of leaders are up to the challenge of taking Singapore forward.
Given the circumstances, PM Lee Hsien Loong will be sorely tempted to call for an earlier GE rather than allow things to worsen. Elections at the end of this year seems increasingly likely.
The SDP is not taking any chances. We have been preparing for more than half a year for our Campaign Kick-Off and its yearlong activities. Like previous elections, we will be ready for the battle.
We may have a mountain to climb but the SDP never says die. We're up to the task and we will conquer that mountain. But we need you, the people, to do it with us. All over the world – from Asia to Europe to the Americas – people are taking control of their own destinies by getting actively involved in elections.
It's our turn. Our time has come. This is not a drill, it is the real thing, and we need all patriotic Singaporeans to come forward and be part of the campaign – your campaign.
So mark the event on your calendar and spread the word. Tell your family and all your friends when you see them this Chinese New Year to come and be part of this great cause.
