SINGAPORE - The Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) has announced its campaign slogan for the Bukit Batok by-election: "Now is the time".

On its campaign card, which was posted on its Facebook page this afternoon (March 26), is a list of initiatives that the party pledges to fulfil within 100 days of getting elected.

Among the promises are to publish an interim financial report and to announce a Bukit Batok Town Council budgetary plan.

SDP secretary-general Chee Soon Juan, 53, will contest the seat in the Single Member Constituency, which was vacated by the People's Action Party's (PAP) David Ong who resigned amid allegations of an extramarital affair.

Lawyer Murali Pillai, 48, will be the PAP's candidate.
