KUALA LUMPUR: A statement which claimed that Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has called an emergency meeting to inform the Cabinet of his decision to resign is fake, according to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).
A PMO spokesman said it did not issue the statement, which has gone viral on social media today, as reported by Bernama.
The viral statement alleged that the
Prime Minister had decided to resign because he and the Cabinet had failed to manage the Covid-19 pandemic.
The statement also claimed that Muhyiddin would have an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to present the Cabinet’s decision and advise His Majesty to perform his function as provided by the Federal Constitution to appoint a new Prime Minister.
