Is PM Lee endorsing a Filipino candidate for The Philippines elections?

Someone has been trying to use PM Lee’s influence to yield support from the Filipinos and the Singaporean authorities are certainly not impressed.

PM Lee’s photograph has been inappropriately used to promote a candidate during The Philippines elections.

Here is the false meme that has been circulating online:

Investigations are currently ongoing

Clearly, PM Lee is not part of The Philippines elections and the meme is misleading and  might affect the public’s perspective and votes.

The Singapore embassy in Manila clarified that PM Lee has nothing to do with the meme in a Faceboook post.

They’re also urging for the post to be taken down and legal actions will be taken soon.
