PRITAM SINGH: Cost of living issues do come up very, very often. And I think that's completely understandable. I mean, all of us can see the changes in terms of the sticker prices of items that we use on a day to day basis.

And of course, for the older generation-- many of those who are retired or may not be earning as much as they were before because they are in part time engagements or similar work arrangements-- they feel the pinch. You know, chicken rice from $3.00, $3.50, $4.00, $4.50. I mean, these things add up at the end of the month. And that's a very pressing issue.

We look at what is the fiscal situation of the government today and whether there's scope to actually enlarge that package. I think those are issues that we've already put to the government. And I will continue watching this space very closely.


NICOLE SEAH: We recognize that social media continues to be a battle ground for the hearts and minds of Singaporeans. So with regards to that, we have already launched our podcast on Spotify to great effect. And we will continue to sustain that effort.

But as well as the [? "Hammertalk," ?] which is on the WP TikTok account that we have recently launched as well.


PRITAM SINGH: I'm proud of the party. I'm proud how quickly we came together as one. And that's very important for a party like the Workers' Party to remember. Because if we are not united, and then you will have a problem engaging the public and being persuasive to be a voice and to represent the opposition interests in parliament effectively.
