Losing your job is a very daunting prospect, so today we focus in on this and consider how one can best prepare, or mitigate, the effects of retrenchment.
We have no end to drama as GE14 approaches. Within the ranks of Barisan Nasional, Tan Sri M. Kayveas, MyPPP party president for the last 25 years, either resigned or was sacked. At the heart of the drama is the Cameron Highlands constituency. During GE13, former Malaysian Indian Congress president G Palanivel won the seat with 10,506 votes just 400 votes more than his rival the DAP’s Manogaran Marimuthu.
Education is central to the Malaysian Dream; seen as the key to upward mobility. And despite allocations of RM61.6 billion in Budget 2018, questions remain about the thinking behind reforms in the education system. Today, we look at party political manifestos; what they say about education and how it can be strengthened.
GE13 saw mostly straight fights between the ruling coalition and the Federal opposition. However, this time, Malaysians can expect many multi-cornered fights, as Islamic party PAS left Pakatan Rakyat and Tun Dr Mahathir and other senior members of UMNO have formed the rival Bersatu party. This shift in coalition and party dynamics will very likely produce everything from three corner fights and more. Today we explore the Kota Raja parliamentary constituency where a five-corner fight is in the works.
Malaysia is internationally recognised for its business-friendly policy and competitive economy, providing the ideal business climate for local and foreign entrepreneurs. But how easy is it REALLY to do business in Malaysia? In this GE14 special, we take a look at the ease of doing business in Malaysia. Or the unease, in some cases.
