    I suppose all the preparation is for the Presidential Elections?

    all indications point to the presidential election. however, for general elections, recently, there were some 'good news' to sweeten the ground. eg. nwc recommended the award of lump sum payment to lower salaried workers to bridge income gap.

    maybe they may hold both elections together?

    Can't claim transport $$, no free parking or claim parking costs, use up your own time and energy to go for these.

    Does anyone have any opinions on these? Even for reservist we get paid (peanuts no doubt, but still at least got paid). This is almost like free labour (albeit in the name of patriotism).

    Lucky i'm not a civil servant...
    hmmm, since you are not a civil servant, where did u learn that from?

    Based on my understanding for this mission, those who are mobilised for Election Duty are selected employees from various stat board and ministry. They can't claim transport, as it's provided (there are buses catered). Most of them will be schedule to places very near to their home (could be within walking distance). And for this mission is paid or some allowance is given (although not a lot), meal is provided as well and there will be a day off compensated on top of that.

    and one more thing, the briefings attended can be incorporated as courses that we've attended and this mission will also be included in our appraisal as well.

    Next time PLEASE get more information before you start commenting about anything...

    When is the last time a MP actually visits your blk unless it is election year?Mine did the other day..

    And it's true, many Civil servants already making preparations lah..

    Election duty, or any other duties out of normal duties (like in MOE, being the Cheif Presiding Examiner, etc) is recorded in apprasial. Officers who typically get upper C or B will have deemed to have performed "other" additional duties beyond the grade, and performed them well.
