The Workers’ Party (WP) has finally moved into its new headquarters (HQ) in Teambuild Centre on Geylang Road. Their fourth-storey unit will be officially opened on Sept 29.

Last December, the party moved out of their former HQ in Syed Alwi Road after the rental lease expired.

In January 2013, it was reported that the party’s old shophouse office was getting too cramped to continue on as the party’s base.

At that time, WP had already raised about a third of its $1.5 million target for a new HQ.

Other than fundraisers and donations from well-wishers, it was also reported that WP’s elected Members of Parliament contributed $1,000 from their monthly salary.

Straits Times reported that the party bought the 110 sq m unit, which has a meeting room and a stage area, for about $900,000 earlier this year.

The party began operating in their new HQ after renovations were completed late last month.

Their new premises is also located outside of their two constituencies, in the Marine Parade GRC.Follow us on Social Media
