The manifesto was put together after years of research and debate within and outside the WP, said the party.
The manifesto focuses on issues like the Singaporean core, economic security, strengthening education, family and social welfare, home and city, governance as well as foreign relations.
The WP has said it will field a record 28 candidates in five group representation constituencies (GRCs) and five single-member constituencies (SMCs).
The GRCs are Aljunied (five members), East Coast (four members), Jalan Besar (four members), Marine Parade (five members) and Nee Soon (five members), while the SMCs are Fengshan, Hougang, MacPherson, Punggol East and Sengkang West.
It has not revealed where it will field these new faces, except that the incumbents in the WP-held wards of Aljunied, Hougang and Punggol East will stay on to defend their wards to repay the voters’ faith in them.
