Chiam See Tong

Chiam See Tong is a politician and lawyer from Singapore. He is the country's longest-serving opposition Member of Parliament (MP). Since 1984, he has represented the constituency of Potong Pasir in Singapore's Parliament, where he is currently one of only two elected opposition MPs.
Chiam was a member of the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) up to 1996, when he left the party to join the Singapore People's Party (SPP). He subsequently spearheaded the formation of the Singapore Democratic Alliance (SDA), and was its Chairman and de facto leader from 2001 to 2011. However in March 2011 he announced that he was withdrawing the SPP from the SDA grouping, and would contest the next general election under the SPP banner. » Read more on Wikipedia.org
