Tan Kin Lian shifts focus to intensive campaign flyer distribution in countdown to Presidential Election

In the lead-up to the campaign’s final three days, Tan Kin Lian, the Presidential candidate, is shifting his focus to distributing campaign flyers with his team and volunteers.

He updated his plans on Monday, highlighting the intensified efforts to distribute campaign materials across Singapore’s HDB heartlands and MRT stations. Tan Kin Lian himself will be actively involved in this effort to engage voters across Singapore.



SINGAPORE: Presidential candidate Tan Kin Lian has altered his campaign strategy in the final three days of his campaign approach, leading up to the Cooling-off Day on Thursday (31 Aug).

Instead of his planned walkabouts, he has chosen to shift his focus towards distributing campaign flyers through the efforts of his team and volunteers.

On Monday (28 Aug), Mr Tan Kin Lian updated on his official Facebook post that In the final 3 days of campaign, his team will be focusing our efforts on distributing their campaign flyers at HDB heartlands and MRT stations throughout various parts of Singapore.

“As such the original walkabouts plans have been cancelled in order for us to concentrate our efforts in this final lap.”

Tan Kin Lian himself will actively partake in this collective endeavour to connect with numerous voters across different points throughout Singapore.

“He looks forward to meeting as many of you as possible in these final days of his campaign to personally thank you for your support, ” said Mr Tan’s media team in the Facebook post.

At the outset, Tan Kin Lian, the former NTUC Income chief executive, had originally planned to engage in walkabouts at Boon Lay Place Market and Food Village on Monday and Ayer Rajah Food Centre on Tuesday.

However, a shift in plans transpired on Sunday night when his media team conveyed the alteration to journalists via a WhatsApp group. The message indicated that there would be no walkabouts or interviews scheduled from Monday to Wednesday.

In a separate chat group for Tan Kin Lian’s supporters, volunteers were encouraged to engage in the distribution of campaign materials, including “micro posters,” across different areas of Singapore.

The distribution was to cover shops, market stalls, customers, and letter boxes. Volunteers were requested to follow a routine similar to a walkabout, suggesting the importance of maintaining an active presence.

Since Nomination Day on 22 August, Tan Kin Lian has actively engaged in daily walkabouts at hawker centers, with the exception of August 26 when he participated in an event for the National University of Singapore Society members.

Notably, during his walkabout at People’s Park Food Centre on Sunday (27 Aug), he was accompanied by Dr Tan Cheng Bock, chairman of the Progress Singapore Party, and Mr Tan Jee Say, a member of the Singapore Democratic Party, both of whom were candidates in the 2011 Presidential Election.

Dr Tan Cheng Bock expressed his endorsement of Tan Kin Lian for the 2023 Presidential Election, emphasizing that this endorsement was in his personal capacity rather than as a politician.

Sure boh, Mr to be president, hahaha.

TKL sounds like a very humble kampong uncle which warms the hearts of many locals. That should be enough to decipher his personality and empathy for others. TS speak sound like N Korea telling you what is best and we’ll do it anyway. NKS sound like he’s in for a good time by chucking a few wise words and showing off a few songs.

Normal people will not go around secretly taking pictures of women and girls, and it got nothing to do with they are pretty, ugly, fat, skinny, tall or short. This intrudes into the privacy of a woman and if she finds out she can sue. You may take picture of animals like dog and cat, objects like scenery and buildings, but not human, even man and children. Taking picture for use is one act, and posting it up in social media for comments (can be positive or negative) is another action. He still can think this is light hearted and… Read more »

It’s indeed a very brilliant move by someone who has become a “Very Important Person” overnight!! He has taken the preemptive action to avoid putting himself in”harms way”. Nowadays 😠😠 even the unthinkable can happen input beloved land.So it’s certainly good to be safe.Nonetheless,those who intend to vote for TKL don’t forget to use your own 🖊️🖊️ to “X” the appropriate box on the ballot paper comes September 1st.😎😎😎

@im not a saint.Well said!In the future,Tan kin Lian should just stick to taking pictures of pineapple 🍍, 😺,F1 tracks and Ridout bungalows.

If is against the law to take pictures and post it,then the person in the picture should sue.If TKL not convicted,then it means he did not break the law.Majority of people have urge and fantasies.We idolised people ,we take photos of our idols and post them.As long we control our cravings and urge and not do unlawful stuffs,we are ok.We are HUMANS we have temptation..You dare to say you are perfect and as clean as white paper?

If he happens to come to my door step I will surely ask him is it okay to secretly take picture of pretty girls without their permission and post it up and talk about it. Is it really light hearted and fun and how he thinks the girl will feel if she comes to know she has been the subject or object people are talking about. And is it still funny if that girl is your daughter or grand daughter? Does he think he is sick in the mind, at this age doing such nonsense.

Singaporeans just finished watching the live CNA Forum. Listening to TS, with our eyes shut, it sounds exactly as if you are listening to the ruling elite propaganda, repeating promises and assurances when they need you. Come 2Sep, you will soon realise nothing has changed if you have given TS the vote. TKL speaks and sounds down to earth. His comments, views and aspirations resonate those of ordinary folks which ordinary folks have been clamouring, but often told why it’s not possible, not workable. Common folks are often told why we should trust the ruling elites, because they know best… Read more »
