For the first time, the People’s Action Party (PAP) has employed the use of new media on a large scale. This includes the party’s first political videos since the ban on such films was lifted. There were instant updates on the PAP website, as well as on Facebook and Twitter. It is part of a broader effort to update and refresh the party image and reach out to the wider public.

The Films Act
