SINGAPORE - The assembly centres for Polling Day (May 7) at Bukit Batok will be at the field along Bukit Batok Industrial Park A and Bukit Gombak Stadium.
The two locations, which are also doubling as rally sites, will allow People's Action Party's (PAP) Murali Pillai and Singapore Democratic Party's (SDP) Chee Soon Juan to gather with supporters and the public at their allocated venues at the close of the polls at 8pm on May 7 until 30 minutes after the announcement of the result of the by-election.
Allocation of the assembly centres to the contesting parties will be revealed on May 6 - after permit applications for the sites have been made in person by the candidates or their election agents at the Police Elections Permits Office (PEPO).
PEPO added that contesting parties can only apply for one site, and that a ballot will be conducted if there is more than one applicant for a venue.
Contesting parties can also apply for a permit to use an indoor site as an assembly centre.
PEPO will conduct a briefing on the application process tomorrow (May 4) at 9am at the Police Cantonment Complex, and has encouraged the candidates and/or their election agents to attend.
