SHAH ALAM: The Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, has expressed his disappointment over a viral social media message claiming he had attempted to influence the Yang di-Pertuan Agong on the appointment of the new prime minister following the general election on Wednesday (May 9).

The Ruler would like to remind the people not to easily believe fake news on the Internet or social media aimed at creating tension between the palace and state or federal governments and undermining harmony among the people, said Datuk Mohamad Munir Bani, the private secretary to the Sultan.
