It’s been 2 weeks since the 14th General Election and the nation have resumed back to their daily lives. However, there’s one particular person who has gained a whole lot of attention (both online and offline) and that person is non other than Syed Saddiq. Syed Saddiq is a 25-years old politician and activist born and raised in Muar. We’ve gathered 5 top reasons why people are going crazy for this man:
1. Professional debater
He is a professional debater with great command in English. With that mad debating skill like his, it is no joke why he has won the Asian British Parliamentary ABP Debating Championship Asia Best Speaking award three times.
2. Single and available
Many people have been wondering if this young man is in a relationship. There were so many rumors flying around that he has a girlfriend and that he s going to tie the knot real soon. According to a source, Syed Saddiq confirms that he’s single and available.
3. Mama’s boy
Why is there news that i have a Girlfriend and am about to get married ?

Syed Saddiq is not afraid to admit that he is actually a mama’s boy. His mother a teacher and he would always help her students by giving tuition. He believes that if anything happens to him, his mom would be the first person in line to help him out. When he found out about the false dating rumors, he shut the rumors down by sharing a tweet about his mother.
4. True nationalist
Syed Saddiq turned down his grant offered by Oxford which costs around RM 400,000 for the sake of our nation. To pursue his Masters in Public Policy at Oxford University has always been his lifelong dream since he started debating professionally.
5. He’s constantly improving himself
He shared that he was a totally different person if you met him five years ago. Back then, his command for English language is not as good as how it is now. He’s never scored A’s for his English paper even though Malaysia English paper is not difficult at all. He also confessed that he was also quite racist but all has changed now. He is now a better person than he was and cares about his nation by trying to contribute his bit to make our nation a better place.
