Constance Singam, former president of the organization, and Braema Mathi, have arrived and both were seen smiling and relaxed. (See pictures below)

About 200 people or so are now presently at the registration point outside Hall 402 on the fourth level, where the EOGM will be held. Earlier, staff from Aware were asking the public to not gather outside the hall and asked them to leave, including TOC. However, most people stayed on while some went to the third level to wait. Registration was suppose to start at 12noon but it has now been changed and the members and public are now being registered.

The mood here is one of anticipation and expectation but most are relaxed and are in good spirits.

Here are some pictures from about an hour ago. TOC will be bringing you updates throughout the day. Stay tuned! Please refresh this page periodically to view new updates.
