GE2015: Do Singaporeans know the political party logos?

SINGAPORE - With nine parties taking part in the election this year, some formed quite recently, Singaporeans are having a hard time recognising party logos.

While most correctly identify the People's Action Party's lightning bolt and the Workers' Party hammer, many could not name other parties based on their logos.

Singaporeans quizzed by The Straits Times struggled with the People's Power Party's logo of a hand holding a torch. The party was started by veteran opposition politician Goh Meng Seng this year and is fielding four candidates in Chua Chu Kang GRC.

Some could not say what "SPP" (Singapore People's Party) stood for, and one said the Singapore Democratic Alliance's (SDA) star and four rings is of the "Audi" party. The car brand's logo is four interlocking rings.

Time to brush up on which logo belongs to which party? Along with their names and photo, party logos will be printed on the ballot paper to help people recognise the candidate they want to vote for come Polling Day on Sept 11.
