General Elections 2020 - Candidate (Marine Parade GRC)[edit | edit source]

Fadli Fawzi was introduced as a Workers’ Party (WP) candidate on 27 June 2020.[18] In a Facebook video published on 28 June 2020, he explained that the reason he joined the WP is:

“Because I believe that Singapore is bigger than just one political party. We need an opposition to examine the flaws and the assumptions of our policymaking process. A rational and responsible opposition like the Workers’ Party (WP) brings a wider spectrum of views to Parliament.”[19]

According to his profile on the WP website, his hope for Singapore is:

For Singapore to be a more just and democratic country where people are empowered to make rational and informed decisions and where its diverse people are united by hope, and not fear of the future.[20]

With 42.24 per cent of the votes, the Workers' Party team lost Marine Parade GRC to the People's Action Party team led by Tan Chuan Jin.[21]
