Malaysia PM Ismail Sabri Rejects Debate Offer From Opposition Leader Anwar


Malaysia's caretaker Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob rejected an offer from opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim to have an open debate with all prime ministerial candidates, noting that it is not part of the local political culture.
