PAP: ‘Our rally increased by 50% more people, Workers’ Party rally shrunk by 5%’

Posted on 03 September 2015

We are getting better over time, PAP said.


From 50 people attending the rally in GE2011 to about 75 people this year, PAP’s rally attendance breaches new heights.

It appears that the tide is turning in favour of the PAP.

This after the PAP reported that this year’s first General Election 2015 rally held at Radin Mas SMC experienced a much better attendance compared to last GE2011 rallies.

A PAP source said the number of people who attended increased by an impressive 50 percent.

And this must be bad news for the Worker’s Party. From various reports, it was mentioned that their rally crowd size shrunk from 100,000 to 95,000 over a four-year period, representing a five percent decline, marking a new Low (pun intended).

Only 95,000 attended the Workers' Party GE2015 Hougang rally, marking a new Low (pun intended).

At the PAP rally, it was reported that the people in front of the stage blossomed from about 50 attendees previously to approximately 75 in total this year as the PAP breached new heights.

Although mainstream media reports claim that PAP rallies attracted several thousand people, it has to be noted that this figure takes into account all the people living in the HDB blocks of flats in the background who are within earshot of the rally site.

It also includes counting those living in the flats who should have been alive today, if they hadn’t died.

One PAP activist, Poh Lan Pah, maintained that his party does not take drastic steps to ensure participation and all attendees are volunteers.

He said: “The 75 people who attended tonight’s rally do so out of their own volition.”

“We only prevent them from going to the bathroom during speeches as this will open up some gaps in the crowd. And the speaker might be too demotivated to speak if he or she sees it.”

    Long queue, large crowd at Customer Service Centre isn’t good thing. This explained for the extraordinary turn-out at every of the rally, but the result is only so so. Low ROI, and not productive enough. People are learning more before they can make a decision to buy into your product and services, especially when your brand is new. Few will question the quality of branded companies, or need to listen to pitches.
    If we buy iPhone, we simply queue up at the cashier counter, or buy
    straight away online. If we buy XXX brand, we need your salesman to
    sell us the product, to help us over come the fear to buy from you.

    But I understand. When one is weak, you need people to think you are strong. This is call advertisement. More people will need to listen to your pitch, to convince themselves to choose you. New brand need more advertisement. Post more of this picture, so that you will have more traffic which leads to a higher conversion rate. Hopes this tips helps.

    what a “dumb” report to use % to measure success when the sample size is small for PAP vs WP. the mere fact the PAP can only gather 50 people is already a sign that people are not pleased with them in parliament
