PM’s office denies Muhyiddin to seek cancer treatment, appoint DPM

Prime Minister's Office

KUALA LUMPUR: The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) has dismissed rumours that Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin needs to undergo treatment for cancer and would appoint a deputy prime minister.

In a statement today, PMO described such reports as malicious, saying the prime minister had been confirmed free from cancer by medical specialists who treated him.

The statement also said it was untrue that Muhyiddin would appoint a deputy prime minister.

Certain news portals had reported that a minister was expected to be appointed as deputy prime minister, allegedly to pave the way for Muhyiddin to seek treatment in Singapore. ‒ Bernama
