Viral message on resignation is fake news.
The viral message about the resignation of Home Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin as Pagoh Member of Parliament has been denied by his press secretary Hafiz Abdul Halim.
“Please be informed that the message is a hoax,” he said in a statement uploaded into Muhyiddin’s Facebook page on Thursday (Aug 30).
Muhyiddin took his oath of office as an MP on August 14 after a month-long medical leave for treatment in Singapore.
He went on medical leave from July 12 and was warded at the Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore where he underwent an operation to remove a tumour from his pancreas.
The Johor-born politician, who is Gambir assemblyman, has also undergone chemotherapy as a precautionary treatment to purge any remaining cancer cells.
