Why WP is quick to caution voters about extrapolating Punggol East results #punggoleast

Firstly, the WP wants to bring to voters’ attention that it is unprepared to be a shadow government with comprehensively researched policy alternatives, in order to caution voters and prevent them from raising their expectations of WP too high.
