Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Joshua Benjamin Jeyaretnam (January 5, 1926 - September 30, 2008); more commonly known as "J.B. Jeyaretnam" or "J.B.J.") was a Singaporean politician. He was the first opposition party candidate to be elected a Member of Parliament (MP) in Singapore, 16 years after the country gained independence. Jeyaretnam served as an MP for the opposition Workers' Party of Singapore from 1981-86, and again from 1997-2001. Having left the Workers' Party, he formed the Reform Party (Singapore) to challenge the more than 40-year rule of the People's Action Party. He died of a heart failure in the early morning of September 30, 2008 at the age of 82, leaving two sons.show more
