DescriptionLeft-of-center opposition party launched by former Worker's Party leader J. B. Jeyaretnam in 2007.

Jeyaretnam's sudden death in 2008 brought the party close to dissolution until Jeyaretnam's son, Kenneth Jeyaretnam, took control in late 2009.

The younger Jeyaretnam signaled a change in the party platform by calling for the privatization of judged-to-be-corrupt Government-linked Companies (GLCs). The party also grew in appeal when Jeyaretnam encouraged unions in their battle to prevent corporations from using cheaper foreign labor to undermine union power.
