Dear ST reader,
For the second general election in a row, there will be contests in all seats, of which there are 93 this time.
Though this year’s Nomination Day was missing some of the atmosphere of previous elections, as no crowds were allowed to gather on account of safe distancing rules, there was still some drama and surprises. We highlight them for you.
There were no walkovers, which means all 2.65 million eligible voters will soon receive polling cards to let them vote on July 10.
Follow our coverage to stay updated with the latest campaigning news, and for a guide on what to do on Polling Day.
All 93 seats to be contested, 192 candidates from 11 parties file papers
There are no walkovers for the July 10 polls.
