Municipal Commission of Singapore
Singapore Municipal Commission was a body created in 1887 by the British colonial government to replace the Singapore Municipal Committee that was created in June 1848. The role of the commission was to manage key services for the Town of Singapore, such as utilities, water services and urban planning. The body had commission board members internally elected but ceased from 1913 until 1949, after which it acted like a quasi-municipal government until the City Council of Singapore was created in 1951.
The commission elections took place in 1949 and 1950 with 6 wards:
