Workers' Party raising $1.5m for new HQ

Published on Jan 6, 2013 4:43 PM

The Workers' Party (WP) is raising funds for new, bigger party headquarters as its existing premises are getting too small.

The goal is to raise $1.5 million, a sum that will go towards making the down payment for a new premise, announced party leaders Low Thia Khiang and Sylvia Lim on Sunday after performing at Bricks In Blue, the WP's first-ever variety show.

The show, put up to thank supporters and constituents, is also part of the party's fund-raising efforts.

Mr Low said the current HQ leased by the party at Syed Alwi Road was too cramped during the 2011 General Election.
