Tajuddin Rahman was removed from his post as Prasarana chairperson, following his remarks when addressing the LRT collision recently.

BFM speaks with Prof Edmund Terence Gomez from the University of Malaya; Tricia Yeoh from the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (Ideas); and Erna Mahyuni from The Malay Mail to explore the impact of political appointments and discuss the checks and balances that currently exist and what needs to change.

And finally, they explore what our expectations from leaders and politicians are when they communicate with the people.
