Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) secretary-general Dr Chee Soon Juan revealed yesterday (3 June) that he paid a visit to the Google offices in Singapore with his fellow SDP leaders, to discuss how the tech conglomerate can support the party’s online communication needs, as the opposition party prepares for the next General Election.

The SDP has been steadily working on its election campaign over 2019. Earlier, the party said that it “strives to be a responsible opposition party by coming up with alternative ideas to take Singapore forward. We want to give Singaporeans a chance to vote for the SDP, not just against the PAP.”

The party has released three policies on the cost of living, housing and healthcare. It is set to launch its fourth policy, on immigration and population growth, on Saturday (8 June).

The event, titled “Launch of Building A People: Sound Policies For A Secure Future,” will be held from 2pm at the SDP Office at 3 Ang Mo Kio Street 62, #02-30, Link@AMK. The event is free and open to the public. -/TISG
