Labor hits back at WeChat fake posts and election scare tactics

Description

With less than a fortnight to go until the federal election, reports have surfaced of political misinformation from unidentified sources spreading on Chinese social media app, WeChat.

Labor wants the prime minister to rule out any Liberal Party involvement in fake posts and doctored accounts on Chinese social media platform WeChat.

The accounts are spreading misinformation about Labor's federal election campaign, which senior opposition figure Penny Wong says are "deeply concerning".
