We watched the elections in Malaysia with great interest and excitement.

History will commend you on the signal victory you have achieved for your country. Your faith in democracy has served you and your members well. You have worked hard and sacrificed much and you have been amply rewarded.

We in Singapore have been inspired by your courage and determination. We are on the road to freedom ourselves. Our journey is long and fraught with peril but we are encouraged by developments in Malaysia. Like you, we will apply ourselves with diligence and integrity, and we know that one day, like you, we shall overcome.

On behalf of the members of the Singapore Democratic Party, I wish you and your party the heartiest of congratulations. We look forward to a democratic and prosperous Malaysia which will not only benefit your country but the region as well.

Sincerely,

Chee Soon Juan
Secretary-General
Singapore Democratic Party
