Singapore Chronicles: Opposition

PART OF Singapore Chronicles SERIES
Publisher: Straits Times Press
  • Description
  • About the Series
  • Singapore Chronicles: Opposition traces the eventful history of Singapore’s opposition parties from post-World War II days to the present.

    In the 2015 General Election, which coincided with the 50th year of Singapore’s Independence, six seats went to the opposition. This formed just about 7 per cent of all elected seats, but still represented a remarkable achievement after the whittled-down opposition presence in Parliament from 1965 to 2011.

    This book tells the story of these parties, which is one filled with personalities, setbacks and ideals. It also examines the opposition movement’s challenges and prospects – in particular, its potential growth trajectories and the shape of Singapore’s political system in the future.

  • To commemorate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s Independence, the Institute of Policy Studies and Straits Times Press jointly launched the Singapore Chronicles series in 2015.

    This 50-volume series seeks to record, explain and offer insights into what makes Singapore, Singapore. Covering a wide range of subjects, from the philosophical to the mundane, the fundamental to the practical, these Singapore Chronicles titles include Constitution, Presidency, Housing, Transport, Demography, CPF, Sports and Food. Each volume in this series will serve as a primer on the subject.

    Written by leading experts, they will focus on key aspects of the subject, providing analysis as well as a historical account. Readers will gain an insight into what makes Singapore tick and also why it has chosen certain “paths un-trodden”.
