It was a scorching morning at the Serangoon Junior College on Wednesday as party members and supporters awaited the final confirmation of the candidates for the Hougang by-election.
Among the supporters: for the PAP, Minister for National Development, Khaw Boon Wan; and Minister for Education, Heng Swee Keat.
For the WP, MPs Low Thia Khiang, Sylvia Lim, Chen Show Mao, Pritam Singh, and Mohd Faisal. Also present were NCMPs Yee Jenn Jong and Gerald Giam.
In the end, only two names emerged - Desmond Choo of the People's Action Party; and Png Eng Huat of the Workers' Party. And so the by-election is a straight fight between the ruling party and the biggest and most successful opposition party.
Here are some pictures from Wednesday, as the crowd came prepared with umbrellas, and braved 3 hours of the blazing noon sun.
We thank Sebastian Song for the pictures of the PAP crowd.
