FORMER Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Minister Datuk Seri Hasan Malek (pic) said he was ready for the silver screen, reported Sinar Harian.

The Member of Parliament for Kuala Pilah is set to star in This is Pilah.

“Although the scenes have yet to be filmed, I don’t feel it’s that big a challenge as my character will be speaking the Negri Sembilan Malay dialect,” said Hasan, who is also Malaysia’s Ambassador to Cambo-dia.

The film will feature Negri Sembilan’s adat perpatih customary laws and star many other actors who are from the state.

> Malaysia should consider introducing electronic voting (e-voting) as it is a more secure form of balloting at general elections, Berita Harian reported Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Paul Low as saying.

Low said that e-voting could also save time and encourage more people to vote as the balloting process could be done from home or the office.

“Many countries have adopted e-voting with the latest being Thailand, which has stated its intention to implement the system,” he said.

> Actress Neelofa is heading to the United States later this month to take part in a panel discussion organised by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), reported Utusan Malaysia.

The 28-year-old is a successful entrepreneur and has been named as one of Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia 2017.

“I will present my ideas in a presentation titled Cultural diversity and the power of the creative world.

“I hope to do Malaysia proud,” said Neelofa, whose full name is Noor Neelofa Mohd Noor.
