Best Newcomer: Sun Xueling (Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC, PAP)

Sometimes a heartfelt speech with a striking message is all you need to make people listen and reflect. Not going to lie, we were smitten and moved by Sun Xueling’s Hokkien speech on Sep 8. Sniff. Sniff.

Best Dramatic Performer: Kevryn Lim (Sembawang GRC, NSP)

The National Solidarity Party (NSP) candidate got emotional and broke down during her Sep 7 rally speech when she spoke about the plight of single parents and called for equal benefits for them. Nothing like a drama mama to drive the message across.

Best Breakthrough Performance: Arthero Lim (Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC, SDA)

Sure, he’s not a fantastic actor but you got to give the Singapore Democratic Alliance candidate credit for shooting two music videos for GE!

Best Poster: Numb

Not only is it creatively designed (read: photoshopped), it pretty much captures everyone’s feelings about the oversaturation of GE news.

Best Song: No Space

Though “Wa Meng Ti” (I Ask Heaven) by Arthero Lim cracked us up, this parody of Taylor Swift’s “Black Space” is simply genius!

All you need is the Meipai app to make Singapore politicians, and politics, beautiful.

Best Costume: Lightning Man

Sure, it’s just a Flash costume with the PAP logo pasted on it, but Lightning Man - and his six pack - stood out in the sea of white at Toa Payoh and Bedok stadiums.

Best Auntie Killer: Goh Chok Tong (Marine Parade GRC, PAP)

Best Auntie Killer: Goh Chok Tong (Marine Parade GRC, PAP)

Like the saying in Mandarin “the oldest ginger is the spiciest” - leave it to ESM Goh Chok Tong to charm the socks off the ladies, young and old, during walkabouts.

Most Enthusiastic Supporter

He’s not only a PAP supporter, he’s a huge fan of Vivian Balakrishnan: "I'm here to support him. He helped me a lot, and wrote to Manpower Ministry when my ex-employer didn't give me my overtime pay." Glad he doesn’t have to work OT now.

Not only do political parties have to fight for residents, they have to make sure they don’t go hungry.

Most Eco-Friendly Party: Reform Party

The Reform Party hands out placards to supporters at rallies and collects them at the end of the night to be used again. Never mind that they are a bit worse for wear, must reuse, reduce and recycle!
