The Singapore People’s Party (SPP) was founded in 1994 by a pro-Chiam See Tong faction that left the Singapore Democratic Party. Since 5 November 2019, Steve Chia has been the Secretary-General, with Jose Raymond as Chairman.
The SPP is a centre-left party that believes in working within the established systems to improve social justice. They promote a degree of social equality that is achievable by promoting equal opportunity. They oppose a wide gap between the rich and the poor and support moderate measures to reduce the economic gap, such as a progressive income tax, laws prohibiting child labour, minimum wage laws, laws regulating working conditions, and limits on working hours.
The SPP declares that it upholds democracy, peace, progress, equality, and justice in its policy making process. In addition, the SPP has a long-term goal of creating a two-party political system in Singapore. It believes that this type of political system can provide Singaporeans a truly democratic society, and will provide the checks and balances necessary for an accountable and transparent government.
