Singapore Malay Union was established on 14 May 1926. Formed as a Malay religious and cultural entity, it was the precipitation to the formation of Singapore UMNO although its leaders later reversed its decision to form it. In 1954, it was joined as part of the three-party LF alliance. When LF became a single party, it declined to merge and instead became a coalition partner to UMNO and MCA in 1955. In 1957, it was expelled by its alliance partners for fielding a candidate in that year's by-election. In the 1959 GE, it went on its own, making no headway. Falling into comatose, it did not register under the new Societies Ordinance passed on 16 May 1960. It was dissolved in 1961.
