Malaysia parliament battle resumes with Muhyiddin in hot seat

Opponents will be looking for chances to attack a prime minister they believe lacks majority support, especially after the biggest party in his coalition officially broke away. Nevertheless, experts say Muhyiddin is unlikely to be unseated during the five-day session.
