Muhyiddin, 72, attired in a black baju Melayu and gold-embroidered black samping, was accompanied by his wife Noorainee Abdul Rahman.

After taking his oath, Muhyiddin signed the instruments of appointment, witnessed by Chief Justice Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat and Chief Secretary to the Government Mohd Zuki Ali.

Among the political leaders present were Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang, MCA president Wee Ka Siong and Gombak MP Mohamed Azmin Ali.
