Historically, the position of Secretary-General is not considered for the post of Prime Minister, instead the Central Executive Committee hold an election to choose the Prime Minister. It is a contest between Lee Kuan Yew, Secretary-General of PAP or Ong Eng Guan, treasurer of the PAP. At the end, Lee Kuan Yew won the election, and become Singapore first Prime Minister.
