Singapore’s “silly season” is upon us The Podcast

This is a special series of episodes, created in collaboration with “Our Class Notes” (, a website of both reporting and research on the electoral, parliamentary, and political scene in Singapore.

She’s covered seven general elections, four by-elections, and two contested presidential elections, and hence I asked her about her experience of reporting an election, the issues to which she is paying attention during the upcoming general election in Singapore, as well as how the ruling party would approach the election.
