Lee Kuan Yew foi o primeiro-ministro de Singapura de 1959 a 1990.

Co-fundador e secretário-geral do Partido da Ação Popular , Lee levou o partido a uma vitória esmagadora nas eleições de 1959, coordenou a separação de Singapura da Federação da Malásia em 1965 e foi o líder nacional durante a transformação de Singapura, que passou de um entreposto colonial subdesenvolvido para ser um dos Tigres Asiáticos, com uma economia típica de Primeiro Mundo. Lee continua a ser uma das figuras políticas mais importantes do Sudeste Asiático.

Seu sucessor, Goh Chok Tong, concedeu a Lee o cargo de Ministro Sênior. No governo seguinte, do filho de Lee Kuan Yew, Lee Hsien Loong, Lee Kuan Yew assumiu o cargo de Ministro Mentor.
