  • In countries such as Australia , New Zealand & UK - Syed Saddiq will have to resign in shame - for engaging in unministerial like behaviour of promoting commercial goods and services. However this is Malaysia - where the minister thinks he is doing plenty of good - and in the process , re-write the ethical code. Surely this cant be put to youthful exuberance ?
