Malaysia's Minister for Youth and Sport - Syed Saddiq

Can Asia's youngest cabinet minister force change in a country run by the world's oldest Prime Minister? Is it time to skip a generation?

Until last year, Malaysia hadn't experienced a real change of government in the sixty years since independence. Prime Minister Mahatir, sailing back into power in opposition colours, can remember when Malaysia threw off the British colonial yoke. He was in his thirties then.

Is it time to skip a generation?
