A statement allegedly by Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi voicing his support for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to be the prime minister is fake.

The statement dated 18 November, allegedly bearing the signatures of both Zahid and Anwar, claimed that Barisan Nasional would work with Pakatan Harapan to form the government with Anwar as the prime minister.

According to The Star, Zahid’s media director Major General (R) Datuk Fadzlette Othman Merican Idris Merican refuted the claims in the fake statement.

She said only the statement issued following the 15th general election (GE15) on 19 November was official.
