Perikatan Nasional's Support For Ismail Sabri Is Conditional

Perikatan Nasional gave their support to the newly-appointed Dato Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob for the next Prime Minister. However, they also said that there are conditions to that support, namely that the next Cabinet should not include MPs who are facing criminal charges. This has drawn some reactions on the validity of their support. Constitutional lawyer Nizam Bashir helps us unpack the dispute.
