Mr Jeyaretnam has been championing the cause of democracy sich the for nearly 40 years. His trials and tribulations have been many. But his passion and desire for justice and freedom for Singapore has remain undiminished.
The Singapore Democrats stands ready to work with anyone, including the Reform Party, to bring about a new era free of PAP domination and oppression, an era of genuine progress and shared prosperity.
