The Federation of Malaya, through its constitution, guarantees the rights and special position of the Malay people as well as rights, powers and sovereignty of the Malay rulers in their respective states. Persekutuan Tanah Melayu Ditubuhkan Separation of powers of the federal and state governments The federation agreement (Perjanjian Persekutuan) set the powers of the federal and state governments. Financial matters must be handled by the respective states. The Sultan was given full power on religious issues and Malay customs. Foreign policy and defence continued to be administered by the British government. The federation agreement was made the Constitution of the Federation of Malaya and officially declared on 1 February 1948. Perlembagaan Persekutuan Tanah Melayu Diumumkan The Federation of Malaya Legislative Council The Federation of Malaya Legislative Council (Federal Legislative Council) held its first meeting in the Tuanku Abdul Rahman Hall, Kuala Lumpur in 1948. It was opened by the British High Commissioner Sir Edward Gent. Attendees included the British Minister of State for Colonial Affairs, Lord Listowel. The membership of the Council was structured to include: * the British High Commissioner (as President); * 3 ''ex officio'' members (namely the Chief Secretary, the Financial Secretary, and the Attorney General); * 11 "State and Settlement Members" (the President of the Council of State of each Malay state, and a member elected by each of the Settlement Councils) * 11 official members; and * 34 appointed "unofficial" members. The unofficial members were required to be either Federation citizens or British subjects. In 1948 the ethnic composition of the Council was made up as follows: * 28 Malay representatives, including all the Chief Ministers, * 14 Chinese representatives, * 6 Indian representatives, and * 14 Europeans (the ''ex officio'' and official members). Dato' Onn Jaafar stressed at the first meeting that the citizens of the Federation of Malaya did not want the interference of external powers in the affairs of the Federation; the Chinese representative Dr Ong Chong Keng asserted that the Chinese people would be loyal to the Federation of Malaya. At this first Council meeting, several minor committees were formed: * the Standing Committee on Finance; * the Election Committee; and * the Committee of Privileges. The first session passed the Kuala Lumpur City Bill, the Transfer of Power Bill, and the Loan and Debt Bill. The First Conference of the Federation of Malaya Legislative Council Registration of PKMM rejected In 1950, the Federation of Malaya Government rejected the registration of the Malay Nationalist Party of Malaya (Parti Kebangsaan Melayu Malaya, PKMM) as a legitimate political party. PKMM had two wings, namely Angkatan Pemuda Insaf and Angkatan Wanita Sedar. Initially, PKMM did not have communist leanings. After Mokhtaruddin Lasso was elected as the first PKMM president in October 1946, this party was influenced with communism. The Young Malays Union (Kesatuan Melayu Muda, KMM) merged with PKMM, and Dr Burhanuddin al-Helmy became the second PKMM president. Dr Burhanuddin led PKMM toward the formation of Melayu Raya (Greater Indonesia), a merger of Indonesia and Malaya (British Malaya). In December 1947, Ishak Haji Mohamed became the third PKMM president and PKMM switched from communism to nationalism. PKMM tended against UMNO and colonisation. PKKM established the Pusat Tenaga Rakyat (PUTERA), a conglomeration of radical Malay Political Parties and then merged with the All-Malaya Council of Joint Action (AMCJA) which thoroughly opposed the 1948 Federation Agreement for the foundation of the Federation of Malaya. PKMM accused officials selected in the Federation of Malaya of being "puppets" of the "Colonial Office". For PKMM, there was no basis in "preparing Malaya as a democratic government".

political association

the oldest parties, the Singapore Malay Union, traced its history back to 14 May 1926, but it was initially a non-political association, participating in elections only in 1955. The Progressive Party (Progressive Party (Singapore)) and Labour Party, both established in the late 1940s, were some of the pioneering local establishments, with the PP the only party to contest in the first elections in 1948, and the LP coming on board in 1951. By 1955, the fledging British colony had seven parties contesting, and reached a pinnacle of 13 parties in 1959. A total of three parties were established in the 1940s, 12 in the 1950s and five in the 1960s. Formation The establishment of the Federation of Malaya did not go down well with the Chinese, whereby favourable conditions for obtaining citizenship for the Chinese and other non-Malays were withdrawn. The Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) was formed on February 27, 1949 under the leadership of a Straits Chinese businessman, Tan Cheng Lock who frequently raised grievances over the citizenship terms that were set when the Federation was established. Bayly, Harper, ''Forgotten wars: Freedom and Revolution in Southeast Asia'', pg 502-3 As a result, communal tensions between the Malays and Chinese surfaced, and Onn Jaafar, who was then leader of the United Malays National Organisation, kept his distance from Tan. Despite these efforts, PUTERA-AMCJA failed to overturn the decision to adopt the Constitional Proposals which led to the formation of the Federation of Malaya on January 31, 1948. API was banned on March 20, 1948, gaining the distinction of being the first political movement in Malaya to be banned by the authorities were formed and an HQ to complete that regiment.
