Moderating a session of seasoned politicians

I was in Teluk Intan on Sunday, to moderate a forum in an event organised by a political party. The organisers requested that I moderate the forum, after successfully moderating a similar forum in Petaling Jaya three weeks earlier.

The panelist of the forum were YB Dato' Paduka Ibrahim Ali, Dato' Ruhanie "Ron" Ahmad and Dato' Mazlan Harun. Ibrahim is a former Deputy Minister in PM's Department, now an independent MP is Parliament. Ron was a former Political Secretary to Deputy Prime Minister Dato' Musa Hitam and BN Back Benchers Club Chairman. Mazlan was former Selangor State Exco and Selangor football team manager, at the height of late Mokhtar "Super Mokh" Dahari sporting career.

The audience said I did well. And it managed to set the tone for a very seasoned politician, YBM Tengku Tan Sri Razaleigh Hamzah, who is said to be vying the seat of a political party Presidency in December.
