PEKAN: Malaysians need to check on every news article spread by the opposition especially with the 14th General Election (GE14) approaching, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said if the people were deceived by the opposition's propaganda, the country's future would be gravely affected if they make the wrong choice in the election.
"In a dynamic political environment people are exposed to changes and they may make their decisions based on inaccurate information. The vulnerability of the people can adversely affect the government.

"We see this happening not only in our country but also in developed countries like for example when the United Kingdom decided to leave the European Union.

"The decision was made based on the Brexit campaigns which were supported by false and misleading information which eventually changed the history of the United Kingdom. The people are now remorseful over their decision but nothing can be done about it," he said.
