KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Malaysia’s new Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob will announce his cabinet line-up this week, state news agency Bernama reported on Monday, citing the premier.
Ismail Sabri was sworn in on Saturday following the resignation of Muhyiddin Yassin last week.
He took charge as the Southeast Asian nation battles its worst surge in COVID-19 infections and as public anger grows over the handling of the pandemic. He is backed by the same alliance that supported Muhyiddin.
