Singapore


The modern history of Singapore begins since 1819, when British statesman Stamford Raffles signed a treaty with Sultan Hussein Shah of Johoron behalf of the British East India Company to develop the southern part of Singapore as a British trading post. During World War II, Japan won the battle of Singapore and took it under control till the end of the war in 1945. Since 1959 Singapore had become an internally self-governing state within the Commonwealth. In 1963 Singapore declared independence from the United Kingdom and joined with Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak to form the new Federation of Malaysia. However, two years later it gained independence as the Republic of Singapore. Singapore’s secession was painless, as the leaders of Federation were suspicious about Singapore's majority of ethnic Chinese and worried that Singapore's economic clout would shift the center of power from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore. From 1959 to 1990s despite the lack of resources (it even gets water from Malaysia), Singapore managed to solve most of the internal problems and made a leap from an undeveloped country to a highly developed country with high living standards.

According to Singapore Constitution of 1965, its legislative branch is represented by Parliament and President. Singapore’s Parliament is unicameral, its members consist of elected, non-constituency and nominated members (by President).
Executive power rests with the Cabinet of Singapore, led by the Prime Minister, and the President. The president is elected through popular vote for a 6-year term, and has some veto powers for a few key decisions such as the use of the national reserves and the appointment of judges, but otherwise occupies a ceremonial post.
Judicial branch consists of Supreme Court and minor courts. Supreme Court is also divided into Court of Appeal and High Court. Chief Justice, judges of Court of Appeal and High Court are appointed by President from the candidates recommended by Prime Minister.

Legal system

Singapore's legal system is almost wholly based on English common law, except from some issues of personal status of Chinese, Muslim and Indian community when Chinese, Muslim and Indian law is applied. Since its introduction in 1826, English common law had undergone a lot of changes to adapt it to special local conditions. Most part of law branches was codified, comprehensive legislation was applied.
Singapore applies English doctrine to the full extent, considering court rules an important source of law. Except from Singaporean, court rules of the UK, Malaysia, India and other countries which practice common law are applied.
According to Civil Law Ordinance, English commercial law is applied in Singapore in all cases regarding partnerships, corporations, banks and banking, agency agreements, transportation, trade, unless otherwise is required by Singaporean law.
