Will 2015 be the year of change?
Update: Looks like rally numbers are not everything! The silent majority spoke up when it mattered.
If crowd attendance is any indication of votes, then 2015 could very well be the year history is made. We’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.
Day 1 – 2nd Sep Rallies
PAP Rally – Delta Hockey Pitch

PAP started of strong with a one of their biggest crowd sizes of the elections. WP however, had a phenomenal start to the rallies.
Crowd Size Score: WP 1 – PAP 0
Day 2 – 3rd Sep
To be fair, from day onwards PAP had 2 rallies for the next 4 rallies, and 7 and 6 rallies for the last two days. Still, you can add up all the rallies and the crowds would not be as big. They just wouldn’t appear as small.
According to TOC, an estimated 1,300 people showed up. Not bad! Just don’t compare it to the Bedok Stadium picture on the last day or PAP tears will be shed.
