INTRODUCTION

The Workers’ Party (WP) was founded in pre-independence Singapore in 1957.Foremost in our founding members’ minds was to promote Parliamentary Democracy. WP has been defending Parliamentary Democracy by contesting in General Elections and By-Elections for more than 50 years.

WP continues to believe that it is in the national interest for the governing party to be subject to political competition, so as to promote higher standards of performance and guard against complacency. We also believe it is in the national interest to ensure that Singaporeans are not held ransom, by having another political party capable to taking over should the ruling People’s Action Party falter or lose its mandate to govern.

WP’s long-term aim is to form the government. While in opposition, we will promote Parliamentary Democracy by seeking the people’s mandate to be Elected Members of Parliament, so that we can call the government to account at the national level.
