A large crowd has gathered at a Sydney corruption inquiry to see former Labor minister Eddie Obeid give evidence.
The door to the public gallery opened just before 10:00am, but people started lining up from just before 8:00am.
Some people in the queue for the public gallery have brought folding chairs to sit on while they wait in the line.
Ian Macdonald is due to give evidence on Thursday.
The ICAC has also heard allegations the Obeids reached an agreement before the last state election to take a secret share in a water company.
New rules for MPs
In light of the sensational allegations being made at the inquiry, New South Wales Labor has introduced new rules to try to stamp out corruption.
From the end of March, state Labor MPs will be required to reveal their full income, keep transparent records and be barred from working a second job.
Labor Leader John Robertson also called for the appointment of an inspector-general for parliamentary standards, to investigate and fine members who breach the parliamentary code.
On the weekend he admitted the new rules are a consequence of the damaging ICAC proceedings.
"These new standards go a long way in demonstrating that Labor had to improve its behaviour and ensure that what we're seeing play out now can't occur in the future,'' he told reporters.
The NSW Liberal premier Barry O'Farrell has described the new rules as 'belated posturing'.
