CITY COUNCIL ELECTION 1951
Formerly known as the Municipal Commission, which was renamed after Singapore was granted British city status, the retiring City Councillors for this term consisted of three from PP and three independents, one who was from LP. These Councillors won the biggest victories in the first Municipal Election in 1949 but only the three from PP were seeking a new term. An independent Councillor in Rochore and PP member, S. A. Mohamed Ali, returned to PP's fold. For the first time, LP won more seats than PP, which continued to decline in support. All seats changed hands as PP captured new wards and lost old ones. Independent candidates fared worse than the previous MEs.
