The 1959 Cabinet of Ministers

The date was 30 May 1959 and general elections fever was at its peak. This particular year was especially important because it was the first time that Singapore was recognised as a state, a separate political entity.

In this 1959 election, Singaporeans would be electing all the representatives to form the government to rule and run Singapore as a country. The stamp sheet commemorates this important milestone event in Singapore’s history.
