Can Ismail Sabri break the curse?
ALL of them fought very hard to get to the top administrative post, but very soon they all came to the realisation that to be Malaysian prime minister was a whole lot tougher than they had imagined
From DPM to PM in 45 days
DATUK Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob probably never imagined how much his life would change in one month.
Game of PM numbers

IN THE next few days, Malaysia will see its ninth prime minister sworn in. In a few days or maybe even weeks later, a whole new cabinet will be sworn in too. They will have a good "honeymoon" because during this period, the pandemic will subside – it has to, given our world-beating vaccination rate and the number of people already infected.

PENANG could well be the next state to enter Phase Two of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) after Kelantan, Pahang, Perak, Terengganu and Perlis. Certainly, it would be big news for the state.
Let this be the last lockdown
THERE is a lot of unhappiness on the ground. The extension of the lockdown has not surprisingly gone down badly, with most Malaysians grappling with the raging Covid-19 pandemic.
