The King who arrived at the airport at about 10am was greeted with shouts of “Daulat Tuanku”.
Some among the crowd donned yellow attire and tied ribbons of the same colour on their vehicles in support of the King, the star reports.
The huge crowd also caused a bottleneck at the city's major bridge leading to the city centre which was choked with vehicles heading towards the palace.
Among those gathered to greet the King were the 22 assemblymen who were earlier embroiled in the Terengganu Mentri Besar crisis.
State Umno Liaison committee secretary Datuk Rosol Wahid when met said all 22 Barisan assemblymen will be present at the swearing-in ceremony at Istana Maziah, on Sunday.
“We respect our Ruler and will be at the palace tomorrow,” he said.
However, former Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh was not present at the airport. An aide said the Jertih assemblyman was at his Kampung Tok Has home in Besut with "thousands" of supporters who had been camping there since Friday.
