KOTA KINABALU: Datuk Seri Azmin Ali is spreading lies with his claim that a senior minister has resigned, said Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

Ahmad Zahid said although Azmin, who is Selangor Mentri Besar, did not name the minister, he (Ahmad Zahid) knew Azmin meant the person to be Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Anifah Aman.

"No minister has resigned. I was with Anifah at an event here on Friday evening.

"Today, Anifah flew to Brussels (Belgium capital) to represent Malaysia,” Ahmad Zahid said after launching the People’s Volunteer Corps (Rela) 45th anniversary celebrations here on Saturday.

He said it was typical of Azmin and the opposition parties to spread lies especially through the social media.

He said he had posted on Twitter a photo of him with Anifah on Saturday.

On Friday, Azmin had tweeted: “Is it true that a Senior Minister has resigned?”

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak responded by tweeting that no minister had informed him of a decision to quit the Cabinet. Najib said that he could only assume that Azmin was lying to create a stir.

On another matter, Zahid said Rela members would be deployed to help Malaysian security forces in patrolling the Eastern Sabah Security Zone (Esszone).
