Who is Ismail Sabri?

Dato Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob from UMNO has been appointed the 9th Prime Minister of Malaysia after commanding the confidence of 114 out of 220 Members of Parliament. But what do we know about Ismail Sabri? Does his history and how he handled the Ministry of Defence portfolio for 18 months under the Muhyiddin administration give us some insight as to the kind of Prime Minister that he might be? Dr Bridget Welsh joins us to discuss.
