Workers’ Party () has moved out of its headquarters at Syed Alwi Road today (16 Dec). The political party held an Extraordinary Organising Members Conference to amend the party constitution to allow them to buy and own a property for a new permanent HQ before moving out.

WP members held their last meeting at their party HQ yesterday evening. WP is on a fund raising drive to raise funds for its new party headquarters. It hopes to raise $1.5 million, which is meant as a down payment for its new premise. The party will be without a HQ until a new premise is purchased. The party runs the Aljunied-Hougang Town Council and the town council has several offices in several parts of their constituencies.

“There is a sense of nostalgia and renewal as we leave the HQ to write a new chapter. Next year will mark the 60th Anniversary of the WP. We have gone through many trials, but we have only one mind focused on Singapore and one heart set on Singaporeans,” the Party wrote on its Facebook page.

“We are moving out! And homeless for now,” the party quipped. “After photos and a semi-ceremonial taking down of the iconic Hammer that has seen us through three General Elections, we cleared out the place.”
