Singapore Justice Party
The Singapore Justice Party is a party which has been based mostly in Marine Parade district of Singapore since the party has taken part in general elections after 1988 by fielding its candidates only at Marine Parade Group Representation Constituency(GRC).In 1997,it did not take part in the General Elections.In 2001,responding to Chiam See Tong's call for a united front against the ruling People's Action Party,the party joined with the National Solidarity Party,the Singapore People's Party and the Singapore Malay National Organisation to form the Singapore Democratic Alliance(SDA).Although the party itself failed to win any seats since it was formed,the SDA did manage to win one seat at Potong Pasir,with Chiam See Tong of the Singapore People's Party as Member of Parliament and have another (Steve Chia of the National Solidarity Party) in parliament through the Non-Constituency Member of Parliament(NCMP) scheme.
After 2001,the party was absorbed into the Singapore People's Party.
