The Independent Singapore (TISG) published online two articles on Cooling-Off Day.

The first featured highlights of Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam's speech at the People's Action Party's (PAP) final rally on May 5, while the second compiled what Workers' Party members had said about the Bukit Batok by-election.

On Polling Day, TISG also published an article on a statement former PAP MP and presidential candidate Tan Cheng Bock made on May 5, in which he said he had not and would not express an opinion on the by-election.
