SINGAPORE - Five political donation certificates have been issued to five individuals who have applied for it, the Elections Department said in a statement on Monday (April 25).
A political donation certificate is one of the documents that candidates must submit on Nomination Day on Wednesday (April 27) if they are to run as candidates for the May 7 Bukit Batok by-election.
While the Election Department did not disclose the names of candidates, we already know of all but one of them.
They are: Mr Murali Pillai, 48, of the People's Action Party (PAP), Dr Chee Soon Juan, 53, of the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP), private-hire car driver Sherwin Eu, 32, and former opposition candidate Abdul Rahim Osman, 59.
Mr Murali and Dr Chee have declared their intention to run last month, while the other two have not.
If they do, the single-member constituency could have a multi-cornered fight.
