The MP wants the fake news circulating to be nipped in the bud.
Permatang Pauh MP Nurul Izzah Anwar has denied a fake message that has gone viral on social media that she was engaged to be married to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V who pardoned her father.
The PKR vice president dismissed the claim and said there were more important matters to attend to, reported The Star.
“Please nip any fake news circulating in the bud. Thank you.
“Let us all focus on the work at hand – saving Malaysia’s economy,” she was quoted as saying in a WhatsApp message.
Rumours of the purported romance have been circulating online since earlier this month.
Last Thursday (May 24), Nurul Izzah’s parents Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail had an audience with Sultan Muhammad V’s mother, Tengku Anis Tengku Abdul Hamid, at Istana Mahkota in Kubang Kerian.
The visit, where the guests were flown on a private jet, marked Wan Azizah’s first trip to Kelantan after being sworn in as Deputy Prime Minister.
Rumours gathered steam after the closed-door meeting that lasted for an hour that Anwar and Wan Azizah had met the King to discuss the purported marriage.
