Formed before the 1955 General Election, it comprised of several wealthy businessmen, many whom were from the Chinese Chamber of Commerce. One of the two largest parties along with PP before the rise of LF and PAP, it merged with PP to form a very resource-rich LSP after merely a year in existence. However, the combined clique's electoral prospects remained dim.
