GE2020: Grab Opposition Party Merchandise & Rally In Style

We live in the democratic society with a multi-party political system. As election fever is quickly catching on, check out the efforts by these opposition parties to garner support through none other than the sale of fetching merchandise.

Workers’ Party (WP)

One of the downside in this year’s general elections is the lack of live campaign and rallies vibes. Still though, you can bring the election atmosphere into your household with these custom merchandise.

WP’s GE2020 merchandise consists of the WP flag, foldable umbrella, long handle umbrella, tote bag, cap, as well as WP60 book titled “Walking With Singapore”.

GE 2020 Collection Bundle S$59.90
WP Flag S$3
WP Flag (A bundle of 5) S$10
Compact Foldable Umbrella with WP Logo S$13
Long Handle Umbrella with WP Logo S$16
Classic Cap (Unisex) S$15
GE Tote Bag S$20

These merchandises are dressed in shades of blue with the party’s iconic logo—a hammer—printed on them.

The Story Behind the Hammer

In the beginning, the party’s publication—called The Hammer—was distributed in the heartlands in return for a small remuneration to raise funds and help sustain the party.

Over the years, the Hammer has been the party’s primary outreach organ and also a symbol of ‘camaraderie’ and ‘discipline’ amongst the members. It also expresses the party’s aim to “meet with Singaporeans to better understand their needs and aspirations”.

The proceeds from the purchase of their products go to their GE campaign efforts to represent the voices of Singaporeans in Parliament.
