PETALING JAYA: A viral media statement claiming that PAS is putting forward its president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang to become the country’s prime minister is fake news.
The Star reported, an aide to deputy president Datuk Seri Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man confirmed that the statement that was circulating on social media was not genuine.
The PAS, in a statement yesterday (on Thursday, July 29) announced the party would continue to support the current Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and also urged all parties to remain united and stop politicking.
The fake statement today claims that the actions by PAS secretary-general Datuk Seri Takiyuddin Hassan as the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Parliament and Law) were done under the instructions of the Prime Minister.
It went on to claim that as such, PAS is not involved in the events concerning the revocation of the Emergency ordinances.
The fake statement also claims that the PAS had demanded Muhyiddin to step down and prepare Abdul Hadi to take on the premiership.
