After nine arduous days of campaigning, there's nothing left to do but to sit back and wait for Polling Day (July 10).

But until then, why not take a look back at some of the most iconic moments and the memes that have sprung up during this election?

12. Woke grandpa

Turns out Tan Cheng Bock is a bit of Hypebeast himself

11. Boyband or K-pop group?

They do have their similarities and the matching outfits help.

You can basically turn the nomination day speech into a MV #SoundOn

10. Where were they?

While Reform Party's secretary-general Kenneth Jeyeretnam was serving his stay-home notice and thus, understandably unable to physically turn up, the no-show of other party candidates definitely left people wondering where they went.

Cannot even turn up for broadcast how to stand up for you in parliament? #kmfst #sgmemes #gememes #GE2020

8. Sure win you

When independent candidate Shirwin Eu turned up at the nomination centre to contest in a five-man seat alone, you know memes were incoming.

7. What team?

In Dr Tan Cheng Bock's defence, PAP and PSP are just one letter apart, and he had represented the former for 26 years in Parliament.

Hahahaha yet another booboo, this time by TCB! #GE2020

6. General Gan's war cry

If you listen closely, you could almost hear her yell "Hormat senjata!" She's not actually that fierce though, she says.

After listening to Gan Siow Huang's Many猫 War Cry. Thank you for your comments, it made us laugh too.

Perhaps one of the most relatable moments for many of us was watching Yeo struggle to deliver his speech in Mandarin.
