QuickCheck: Is the 'Cabinet Minister List 2022' image going viral on Twitter accurate?


RECENTLY, an image titled "Senarai Menteri Kabinet 2022" (List of Cabinet Ministers 2022) featuring Malaysian politicians with Cabinet positions listed went viral on social media, especially Twitter.

Does the image show a true depiction of current events as of Friday (Nov 25), given that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was just sworn in as the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia on Thursday (Nov 24)?

Verdict:

FALSE

The Prime Minister's Department has debunked the viral image as a fake.

On its official communication channels on the night of Nov 23, the department urged the public not to share any unverified information that could be fake news.

It also advised the public to follow its official social media accounts for accurate news. As of Friday (Nov 25) afternoon, the new Cabinet has yet to be announced.
