Webinar on Navigating New Election Laws in Singapore 2020

This webinar on the new election laws in Singapore was 7 PM Singapore time, Wednesday 1 July 2020 

The Internet is vital for Singapore’s General Election 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic: campaigning, canvassing, and commenting will all be online. But what are we, as ordinary citizens on the Internet, legally able (or not) to do online during this time?
Join the expert panel of Prof Kevin Tan, Prof Ang Peng Hwa, and Remy Choo, at our Internet Society Singapore Chapter event, as they take us through the new election laws that regulate this unusual campaign, Cooling Off Day, and the polls on 10 July.
