Pakatan Harapan chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad on Tuesday denied that Kedah BN had engaged Cambridge Analytica, for its GE13 campaign when his son, Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir, was the coalition’s state election director while former DPM and PPBM President Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said he has no knowledge of the British data analytics firm.

Britain’s Channel 4 secretly taped interviews with senior Cambridge Analytica executives in which they boasted of their ability to sway elections in countries around the world with a menu of digital manipulation and traditional political trickery.
