KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia’s opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim was questioned by police on Friday over a list of lawmakers reportedly supporting his bid to oust the government of Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.

Anwar was summoned after complaints were lodged against him about the list of 121 lawmakers, from Malaysia’s 222-member parliament, that made the rounds on social media after his meeting with the king on Tuesday. During his royal audience, Anwar reportedly claimed to have enough support to form a new government.
