KUALA LUMPUR : There was no necessity to involve the royalty in forcing the Prime Minister to resign as there are democratic ways of achieving it, said PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang (pic).

He said there are "others in power" who were better suited to make the decision.

"We don't want to include others who do not need to be included in any kind of change.

"We have political parties and NGOs and others in power and the decision is up to them," Hadi told reporters at Parliament lobby when commenting on Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's call for Malaysians to sign the Citizens Declaration in order to urge the royalty to pressure Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to step down.

Hadi said it was important for any action to be taken in accordance with the process of democracy.

"We want any form of change to be carried out in accordance with the right democratic process. Not in the way that that is being done now.

"The process of democracy is either a vote of no-confidence or elections. That is democracy and both are not being done," he said adding that demonstrations should be allowed so long as it was done with the right process and clarification.
