LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL BY-ELECTION 1948
The reason for Singapore's first by-election, held shortly after a GE earlier in the same year, was due to the death of independent Legislative Councillor S. C. Goho, who passed away in Calcutta. PP nominated a previously unsuccessful independent candidate in the GE, who was contested by two other new independents, one of them who turned up in a last-minute surprise.
