Today, 1 March, Interim Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said that the Yang-DiPertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah has decided not to see him anymore
"The YDPA has made the decision and sworn in (Muhyiddin) to take the oath of office as the 8th Prime Minister at 10.30am despite our majority," he told a press conference in Kuala Lumpur.
"I do not have the opportunity to tell the Yang di-Pertuan Agong that he (Muhyiddin) has no majority and cannot communicate with the palace."
Dr Mahathir also said that he feels "betrayed" by Muhyiddin Yassin, whom the Agong named the eighth Prime Minister on Saturday
He was working on this for a long time and now he has succeeded.
According to Dr Mahathir, the Pakatan Harapan coalition will now have to wait for the next sitting of the Dewan Rakyat to show no confidence
"The next thing we can do is show no confidence in Parliament. This can be delayed... If Parliament is not allowed to sit, MPs cannot show support or not. If they don't support Muhyiddin, he can't be PM," he said.
Last night, the Pakatan Harapan coalition claimed to have the backing of 114 MPs who support Dr Mahathir as Prime Minister:
