Majlis Pusat Singapura was established in 1969, or more precisely registered on 12 April 1969 under the name of the Majlis Pusat Pertubuhan-pertubuhan Budaya Melayu Singapura.
But in 2012, with a slightly changed function, this unique name was changed to Majlis Pusat Singapura with unique registration number S69SS0029H.
As an organization that has long been on the ground of Singapore and is very synonymous with the Malays society, also to remember the sacrifice and the determination of the earlier leaders, Majlis Pusat Singapura still tried to survive though has been hit by a storm with turmoil and saga that struck.
After fifty years of being established, there are still a handful of members of Majlis Pusat Singapura who would like to continue to preserve the presence of Majlis Pusat Singapura and will strive to bring the organization on track.
In October 2019, a committee was formed and now Majlis Pusat Singapura is chaired by a group of volunteer members known as the Executive Committee of the Majlis Pusat Singapura.
Hopefully the involvement of the leaders will also enliven Majlis Pusat Singapura with the willingness of Mr. Baey Yam Keng, Senior Parliamentary Secretary, Ministry of Transport and Member of Parliament for the North Tampines Constituency, to fill the advisory seat as well is a catalyst for MPS to move forward.
Thank you also for the willingness of the three Malay community very much for watching MPS march forth by sitting as Trustee.
Hopefully the presence of these figures can strengthen the existing committee’s efforts to enliven MPS with various activities from community to community.
