Nearly all of the seats at the opposition bench were empty during the morning session of today's Dewan Rakyat sitting as MPs made their way to Putrajaya in a show of support for Perikatan Nasional chairman Muhyiddin Yassin ahead of his questioning at the anti-graft agency.
The former prime minister is scheduled to meet with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) at 11am.
This followed allegations of abuse in stimulus programmes launched under his leadership at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim last year ordered a review of government projects worth billions of dollars approved by Muhyiddin, including Covid-19 relief programmes, alleging they did not follow proper procedures.
Muhyiddin himself denied the accusations, describing them as political vendetta.
MalaysiaNow previously reported that Muhyiddin could be arrested and brought to court as early as today, although the nature of the charge was not immediately clear.
MACC has so far arrested and charged former Bersatu information chief Wan Saiful Wan Jan and another party leader.
It has also frozen Bersatu's accounts as part of its investigation into the alleged abuses.
