PETALING JAYA: Nurul Izzah Anwar has denied a fake message circulating on social media which says she is getting married to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V.
When contacted via WhatsApp on Monday, the PKR vice president dismissed the claim and said there were more important matters to attend to.
"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 said.
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 marked Wan Azizah's first trip to Kelantan after being sworn in as Deputy Prime Minister.
It was a closed-door meeting that lasted for an hour.
However, the viral message twisted the facts and said that Anwar and Wan Azizah had met the King to discuss the purported marriage.
