Our History

The Singapore People’s Party (SPP) is a political party that was formed following its official registration on 21 November 1994. The party’s founding chairman and secretary-general were Syed Farid Wajidi and Sin Kek Tong respectively. The founding members of the SPP were drawn mostly from the ranks of the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP). They had broken away from the SDP due to a leadership struggle and disagreement over the policy direction of the party. One of the most high-profile SDP members who left and joined the SPP was the former party’s first secretary-general, Chiam See Tong in 1996.

At the time of its formation, the SPP termed itself as a “moderate version of the SDP”.

The party’s main objective was to be a “constructive opposition” that would transform Singapore into a culturally rich nation, one that would provide equal opportunities for all and encourage creativity among its citizens. The party also wanted to safeguard the democratic principles of the nation as well as push for an economic union between Singapore and Malaysia. Today, the party continues to pledge itself to the democratic principles of the country. It also strives to improve the lives of Singaporeans by providing constructive ideas and recommending sound policies in parliament. In addition, the party has a long-term goal of creating a two-party political system in Singapore. It believes that this type of political system can assure Singaporeans of a truly democratic society, and will provide the checks and balances for an accountable and transparent government.
