When YB Means Yang Berbranded

Does it bother you when politicians wear luxury goods? Should our leaders flaunt their wealth when the rakyat struggles to afford basic necessties? How and why does a hoodie cost two thousand ringgit? These are just some questions you're bound to have, after a visit to Voteordié, a satirical e-commerce site that pretends to sell luxury items worn by Malaysia's political elites. We speak to the folks behind the site about their novel take on voter education in the lead up to GE15.
