Syed Saddiq

Shaun Ley talks to Syed Saddiq, Minister for Youth & Sport, Malaysia.

A year ago following a huge corruption scandal Malaysia had its first change of government in 60 years. The country's politics has been dominated by the same two names for the past two decades or so - Mahathir Mohamad, a retired prime minister who returned to power at the age of 92; and Anwar Ibrahim who was jailed, then pardoned and is now the prime minister's chosen successor. Syed Saddiq is Malaysia's youngest cabinet minister in a country where the average age is in the mid-20s. Sayed Saddiq tells Shaun Ley that Malaysia is now a country of reform and modernisation and no longer a land trapped in its colonial past.
