What Would The Ideal Cabinet Look Like?

Prime Minister Dato Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob will be announcing the new Cabinet lineup for his government this week, and we look into what the ideal Cabinet would look like. First, we discuss the potential of having a more technocratic government. Next, following the calls for an East Malaysian to manage the portfolio for Rural Affairs, we explore what it takes for us to identify the right people to fill specific minister posts. And finally, we look into why we need better gender representation in the Cabinet.
