The Workers’ Party is 50 years old this November. Given Singapore’s challenging political landscape, the survival and successes of an opposition party over the past half-century is indeed good cause for celebration.
Singapore’s first Chief Minister Mr. David Marshall founded the Workers’ Party in 1957. The subsequent years under the leadership of Mr. JB Jeyaretnam and Mr. Low Thia Khiang saw the Workers’ Party continue to live out the values of sincerity, compassion and justice. The Workers’ Party has all these years fought hard to give Singaporeans a choice. Mr. JB Jeyaretnam made history in 1981 by winning the first opposition seat since 1965 after a gap of 15 years. Under Mr. Low’s leadership, the party continues to renew its policies and membership so as to remain relevant to the new generation of Singaporeans.
The Workers’ Party love for our nation remains constant throughout these years.
To the veteran members – our deepest appreciation for your faith and thanks for keeping the flag flying high all this time.
To the youth members – thank you for having the courage to stand up and be counted in our good fight to offer Singaporeans a viable alternative choice.
To the members of the public – we feel your support and we trust we can count on you in the years to come.
On behalf of the Workers’ Party, I would like to invite all Singaporeans to join us in our celebrations of our love for the nation.
