SINGAPORE - The 2015 General Election, held in the nation's Jubilee year, will go down in electoral history as the one that confounded expectations.
In the end, the tough fight many predicted for the ruling People's Action Party did not materialise, and it romped to a landslide victory with 69.9 per cent of the vote - a 9.8-point surge from the last election in 2011.
From the drama of the rallies and nine days of campaigning to an in-depth look at all the parties that played a part in the most hotly contested election since Singapore's independence, a new e-book launched by The Straits Times captures all the highlights.
The e-book, titled Singapore's Jubilee Election: What Were Voters Really Saying?, also contains a foreword from ST deputy editor Sumiko Tan and news analyses from writers such as Chua Mui Hoong and Han Fook Kwang.
