Just found out that :
PKMS [ Singapore Malay National Organization ] was a branch of Malaysia's UMNO [ United Malays National Organization ] previously when Singapore was still a part of Malaysia.
PAP [ People Action Party ] had a branch in Malaysia before its independence, AKA DAP [ Democratic Action Party ].
Of course, after Singapore's independence, the main parties and their branches no longer have any affiliation (**) across the borders but it's interesting to know such political history.
Perhaps something good (learning about political history) came out of the fight between PKMS incoming/outgoing councils. By "fight", I mean a real brawl! Read here for more details on the skull fracturing brawl..
