Why Political Appointments Aren't The Way Forward

Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman has been removed from his post as Prasarana chairperson, following his recent remarks when addressing the LRT collision this week. We explore the impact of political appointments, and discuss the checks and balances that currently exist and what needs to change. And finally, we explore what our expectations from leaders and politicians are when they communicate with the people.
