Muhyiddin, 72, was sworn in as Malaysia's eighth prime minister at Istana Negara in Kuala Lumpur on Mar 1.
A new coalition, formed by Muhyiddins Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, United Malays National Organisation, Parti Islam Se-Malaysia and others, took over federal power from former ruling coalition Pakatan Harapan (PH).
This came after Mahathir Mohamad's unexpected resignation as prime minister on Feb 24, after his PH coalition collapsed amid a power battle, plunging the country into political turmoil.
