Citizens’ Declaration pointless, says PAS president

The Citizens' Declaration signed by former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad with other opposition leaders is pointless as it will never bring about any change without the support of Barisan Nasional leaders, PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang said today. "I have made it clear earlier that there are things that we (PAS and other opposition parties) agree on and there are things that we do not agree on. "We agree on changes but to us, that has to be done in a democratic manner. The thing that we don't agree on is that this is being done in haste," he said. Abdul Hadi said there were two ways to make changes in the country, one of them was through the election and another, through a vote of no-confidence. "If we want to get the vote of no confidence, it has through the majority in Parliament and that has to come from Umno but if the leaders refused and only us, it is a pointless effort," he said. Despite PAS's refusal to support the declaration, its election strategy director Mustafa Ali and Kuala Nerus MP Khairuddin Aman Razali attended the event.  – March 9. 2016. MORE TO COME]]>
