KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 16 — Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has arrived at Istana Negara for his royal audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.
Escorted by at least 12 police outriders, Muhyiddin waved to media personnel covering his arrival before his vehicle drove into the palace at around 12.20pm as part of a 15-car convoy.

Yesterday, it was reported that Muhyiddin is likely to tender his resignation to the Agong today, after informing Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia leaders of his decision during a high-level meeting.
