Sylvia Lim on Parliamentary Elections (COVID-19 Special Arrangements) Bill

(Updated: )

MP Sylvia Lim spoke on the Parliamentary Elections (COVID-19 Special Arrangements) Bill in Parliament on Monday (May 4). She asked what progress needs to be made on the virus front before a General Election will be held. She also sought clarity on changes to campaigning rules and said they should not lead to higher costs. Ms Lim also asked if the Elections Department could commit to giving all voters, including those on quarantine or stay-home orders, the chance to vote. Otherwise, she said, some might end up not voting, which could affect the outcome in a close contest.
