The Secretary-General of the People's Action Party is the leader of the party. The Secretary-General of the PAP is usually the Prime Minister of Singapore, because PAP won every election, since 1959. 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. [1]

From that election, there is a tradition that Singapore Prime Minister would be the Secretary-General of the winning party with the majority of the seat.
