Malaysian Parliament (Malaysia) votes to expel Singapore from the Republic an Singapore becomes independent after separating from Malaysia became was renamed Radio Television Singapura (RTS). From the founding of modern Singapore in 1819 till 1826, Singapore was headed by two Residents (Governors of Singapore#Resident of Singapore (1819-1826)) in succession. Following Singapore's amalgamation into the Straits Settlements in 1826, it was governed by a Governor (list of British Governors of the Straits Settlements) together with a Legislative Council (Legislative Council of the Straits Settlements). An Executive Council of the Straits Settlements was introduced in 1877 to advise the Governor but wielded no executive power. In 1955, a Council of Ministers was created, appointed by the Governor on the recommendation of the Leader of the House. Constitutional talks between Legislative Assembly representatives and the Colonial Office were held from 1956 to 1958, and Singapore gained full internal self-government in 1959. The Governor was replaced by the Yang di-Pertuan Negara, who had power to appoint to the post of Prime Minister the person most likely to command the authority of the Assembly, and other Ministers of the Cabinet on the Prime Minister's advice. In the 1959 general elections (Singaporean general election, 1959), the People's Action Party (PAP) swept to power with 43 out of the 51 seats in the Assembly, and Lee Kuan Yew became the first Prime Minister of Singapore. The executive branch of the Singapore Government remained unchanged following Singapore's merger with Malaysia (Singapore in Malaysia) in 1963, and subsequent independence (history of the Republic of Singapore#Independence of Singapore) in 1965. The PAP has been returned to power in every general election and has thus formed the Cabinet since 1959. The Government is generally perceived to be competent in managing the country's economy (economy of Singapore) and largely free from political corruption. On the other hand, it has been criticized for using unfair election tactics and violating freedom of speech. The British High Commissioner's role became that of an ambassador following Singapore's independence from Britain and merger with Malaysia (Singapore in Malaysia) in 1963. Apart from that, the executive branch of the Singapore Government remained largely unchanged, Tan, "A Short Legal and Constitutional History of Singapore", p. 49. although now it governed a state within a larger federation. However, with effect from 9 August 1965, Singapore left the Federation of Malaysia (Malaysia) and became a fully independent republic (history of the Republic of Singapore#Independence of Singapore). On separation from Malaysia, the Singapore Government retained the executive authority it held, and took on additional executive authority over Singapore that the Parliament of Malaysia relinquished. Constitution and Malaysia (Singapore Amendment) Act 1965 (No. 53 of 1965) (Malaysia), ss. 4 and 5. The Yang di-Pertuan Agong, the Supreme Head of State of Malaysia, also ceased to be the Supreme Head of Singapore and relinquished his sovereignty, jurisdiction, power and authority, executive or otherwise in respect of Singapore, which was revested in the Yang di-Pertuan Negara of Singapore.

Ed.), s. 4. then vested the executive authority of Singapore in the newly created post of President, and made it exercisable by him or by the Cabinet or by any Minister authorized by the Cabinet. The '''Singapore National Referendum''' of 1962, or also commonly referred to as the '''Merger Referendum of Singapore''' was the first and only referendum to date held in Singapore on September 1, 1962. It called for people to vote on the terms of merger with Malaysia (Singapore in Malaysia). Some of the options ultimately had to deal with questions of national identity, and such questions would come to be cited even years after the merger, as well as after the subsequent separation (History of Singapore#Independent Singapore (1965 - present)). The earliest predecessor of the Cabinet was the Executive Council of the Straits Settlements, introduced in 1877 to advise the Governor of the Straits Settlements (list of British Governors of the Straits Settlements). It wielded no executive power. In 1955, a Council of Ministers was created, made up of three ''ex officio'' Official Members and six Elected Members of the Legislative Assembly of Singapore, appointed by the Governor on the recommendation of the Leader of the House. Following the general elections that year, David Saul Marshall became the first Chief Minister of Singapore. Constitutional talks between Legislative Assembly representatives and the Colonial Office were held from 1956 to 1958, and Singapore gained full internal self-government in 1959. The Governor was replaced by the Yang di-Pertuan Negara, who had power to appoint to the post of Prime Minister the person most likely to command the authority of the Assembly, and other Ministers of the Cabinet on the Prime Minister's advice.

Since then, the PAP has retained power and formed the Government (Government of Singapore) through successive elections, and Singapore's merger with Malaysia (Singapore in Malaysia) in 1963 and full independence (history of the Republic of Singapore#Independence of Singapore) in 1965. In the 1968 general election (Singaporean general election, 1968), the PAP was returned unopposed in all except seven of the 58 constituencies, and won the remaining seats with 84% of the popular vote. Turnbull, pp. 309–310. Thereafter, every seat in Parliament was held by a PAP MP until Joshua Benjamin Jeyaretnam of the Workers' Party of Singapore won a 1981 by-election (Singaporean by-election, 1981) in the Anson constituency. Turnbull, p. 333. Jeyaretnam retained his seat at the following general election in 1984 (Singaporean general election, 1984), at which Chiam See Tong of the Singapore Democratic Party was also elected as representative of Potong Pasir (Potong Pasir Single Member Constituency). Turnbull, p. 335. Between 1984 and 2011, the number of elected parliamentary seats held by opposition parties fluctuated between one (after the 1988 election (Singaporean general election, 1988)) As the Non-constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP) scheme had been introduced in 1984, Lee Siew Choh of the Workers' Party became an NCMP following the 1988 general election (Singaporean general election, 1988): Turnbull, p. 340. and four (1991 election (Singaporean general election, 1991)). Turnbull, p. 351. The "S" series is no longer administered by the Malaysian Road Transport Department following Singapore's secession from Malaysia (Singapore in Malaysia) in 1965. In the years that followed, the Singaporean license number system began to change with the modification and reintroduction of its "S" prefix and inclusion of a checksum digit as a suffix, in the addition to new prefixes and colour schemes for different classes of vehicles (''See vehicle registration plates of Singapore'').

Georgetown, Guyana

, the nation's capital. Approval was also given by the then President (President of Guyana) Forbes Burnham for Mash to be a National Event for the Republic celebration. Mash activities were rotated in Linden, Berbice and Georgetown but due to sponsorship, the Costume Bands contest remained in Georgetown. In 1899 he completed St. George's Anglican Cathedral in Georgetown, Guyana, which was the tallest wooden church in the world until 2003 when the Peri Monastery near Săpânţa in northern Romania was completed. Brian Close was replaced by Colin Cowdrey for the MCC tour of the West Indies in 1967–68 (English cricket team in West Indies in 1967-68), his third spell as England captain and he was determined to make a success of it. Barrington and the MCC fared poorly in the run up matches and with West Indian supporters constantly telling him "Charlie's (Charlie Griffith) waiting for you man. He'll kill you". Barrington was so upset that told his wife that he wouldn't tour again. p. 126, Peel In the First Test at the Queen's Park Oval in Trinidad Cowdrey won the toss and batted with Boycott and Edrich adding 80 for the first wicket and Barrington coming in against the spinners at 110 2. Soon after Gary Sobers responded to the crowd and brought on Griffith, but Barrington twice called him to halt as the chanting of the crowd interfered with his concentration. Although hit with bouncers on the shoulders and back he survived the five over spell and the tired bowler was taken off. He brought up his 50 with a six off Lance Gibbs and added 134 with Cowdrey and 188 with Tom Graveney before hitting Gibbs for another six to bring up his 20th century. When he saw the ball sailing into the stands the 37 year old Barrington took off his cap and waved his fist in triumph. He was finally caught by Griffith off Gibbs for 143, the second time that he had made a century in four successive Tests. England made 568 and the West Indies followed on (Barrington dismissing Sobers), but survived the last day on 243 8 for a draw. Barrington made 63 in the Second Test at Sabina Park, Jamaica, again stopping Griffith's run up as the crowd went wild. John Snow (John Snow (cricketer)) took 7 49 and the West Indies followed on again, but when the local favourite Basil Butcher was out at 204 5 the crowd disagreed with the decision and rioted, even though Butcher had walked. Tear gas was used by the Jamaican police to restore order and play resumed, but the England team lost their hold on the game as Sobers made 113 not out and the West indies 391 9. Needing only 159 to win England collapsed to 68 8 (Barrington 13), but somehow managed a draw. The Third Test at Bridgetown, Barbados was another draw (Barrington 17) and the Fourth back at Trinidad looked like going the same way. The West Indies had made 526 7 and England replied with 404, where Cowdrey (148) and Barrington (48) added 133 for the third wicket. Sobers, remembering the England collapse in the Second Test declared at 92 2 leaving England 215 to win in 135 minutes, a run-rate they had yet to achieve in the series . Cowdrey was uncertain, but Barrington convinced him to go for the win, shouting "Will we go for it? Of course we'll go for it. That's what we've come all this way for, isn't it?" p. 132, Peel Barrington did not bat, but England made 215 3 and won by seven wickets. Sobers was lambasted by the Caribbean press for his cavalier declaration, but responded in the Fifth Test in Georgetown, Guyana with 152 and 95 not out, Barrington taking his wicket again in the first innings, and England were struggling at 206 9 when stumps were pulled on the last day, but they drew the match and won the series. Barrington had made only 4 and 0, but finished with 288 runs (41.14) and 5 wickets (51.40), having dismissed Sobers and Seymour Nurse twice each and the opener Steve Camacho. pp. 126–135 thumb E. R.
