The Labour Party was a political party in Singapore.
The party was established on 23 March 1948 by several trade unionists. Its first electoral test was the April 1949 local elections, in which it received 13% of the vote, winning one of the 18 seats. In the next local elections in December the party's vote share increased to 43%, although it only won two of the six seats. The party won one seat in the 1950 elections.
However, the party saw several splits in the early 1950s, leading to the formation of the Labour Front. It won only one seat in the 1952 local elections and none in the 1953 elections. By the 1955 general elections the party had lost both its MPs, and received less than 1% of the vote, failing to win a seat.
