Among them was Nicole Seah, the youngest candidate formally unveiled so far.
"We have been actively using social media to engage users and to engage most of the electorate. I think that a lot of young Singaporeans are very excited this time round and they want to see real change," said Seah, NSP's new candidate.

Independent candidates as well as the People's Action Party's (PAP) Christopher De Souza, also turned up.
