Best Ever Speech Collections of Lee Kuan Yew - Remembering Lee Kuan Yew, The Great Leader and Politician of Singapore.

Lee Kuan Yew, GCMG, CH (born Harry Lee Kuan Yew, 16 September 1923 – 23 March 2015), informally known by his initials LKY or Harry Lee, was the first Prime Minister of Singapore, governing for more than three decades from 1959 to 1990, including through Singapore's independence from Malaysia in 1965.

After Lee chose to step down in 1990 to ensure stable leadership renewal, Lee's successor, Goh Chok Tong, appointed Lee as Senior Minister. He held that post until 2004, when his elder son, Lee Hsien Loong, became the nation's third prime minister, upon which the elder Lee assumed the advisory post of Minister Mentor until he left the Cabinet in 2011. In total, Lee held successive ministerial positions for 56 years, beyond which he continued to serve his Tanjong Pagar constituency of nearly 60 years as a Member of Parliament until his death in 2015.
