What we, the Singapore Democrats, are offering Singaporeans is a way out of this cage that the PAP has put us in. We spell out clearly in this section, what we stand for and how we will go about achieving our goal of entrenching democracy for our nation.
The Party
The Singapore Democratic Party was constituted in 1980. Since then the Party has evolved and, today, stands proudly as the vanguard for the democratic struggle in our nation. We are acutely aware that pocket-book issues are what drive political opinion in Singapore. A look at some of the articles in this website and especially those in The New Democrat, our party newspaper, shows that we have been emphasizing much on the bread-and-butter issues concerning the common folk.
SDP's Alternatives
Are you tired of competing with foreign workers for jobs that pay pittance? Are you concerned about the escalating prices of HDB flats? Are you angry about the loss of billions of dollars of our reserves? The Singapore Democrats are determined to bring to the Singaporean electorate an alternative to the PAP's economic system which has come under increasing scrutiny as it struggles to convince the public that it can deliver the necessary results.

Your Letter
Your Issue is our Concern
There is a great difference between worry and concern. A worried person sees a problem and a concerned person solves a problem.
- Harold Stephens
Women Democrats
History shows that women have been unequally represented in the political arena in Singapore. From 1970 to 1984, there were no women parliamentarians. This trend is even more pronounced in the opposition. The Women Democrats (WD), the women's wing of the SDP, is looking to change that.
Young Democrats
As a youth wing of the Singapore Democratic Party, we believe in the ideals and aims of our mother party. That means promoting human rights and democracy in authoritarian Singapore. Set up in 1999, we believe that Young Democrats (YD) can only do this with a base of dedicated and passionate youths who are committed to the ideals and willing to work to make it happen.

Political Hors D'œuvre
Hors D'oeuvre (pronounced or-durve) refer to savoury delectables served before the main course. In this segment, we present bite-size political statements by members of the ruling elite. Unlike appetizers, however, these PAP-served hors d'oeuvres are really indigestible. So if you don't want to ruin your appetite, we suggest you skip this section. Have a good one to share?
