General elections were held for the first time in Brunei in March 1965.[1] The Legislative Council consisted of 21 seats, 10 of which were directly elected, six were ex officio, and five appointed by the Sultan.
The majority of the 36 candidates contesting the election were independents, some of which were former members of the banned Brunei People’s Party. Voter turnout was around 80%.[1]
