Walking the Corridors of Power

Fancy walking the corridors of power? We talked to Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman, an intern who did just that - with Malaysia's own version of the White House Internship programme. Zara Kahan, the coordinator of the Perdana Fellows Programme also came on the show to tell us how it offers a unique opportunity for young Malaysians to get a glimpse into how real government works. Interns in Putrajaya even get mentored by Cabinet Ministers (yes, this includes the Prime Minister!) -  find out how Syed Saddiq fared during his stint at the administrative capital of Malaysia in this installment of the Evening Edition.
