Google has put a ban on political ads in Singapore which has sparked outrage, ahead of a widely expected election.
Google said that it would no longer accept political ads as of 2 December, as they are regulated under a new "fake news" law in the city-state.
But an opposition political party said the move would "deprive" Singapore voters of information.
It said it was "highly dependent on social media and the internet" to reach would-be voters.
Singapore's local media environment is highly controlled, with state-linked media outlets dominating the scene.
The Singapore Democratic Party said this control meant the internet and social media were one of the few ways it could reach possible voters.
