Interesting Political Developments in Indonesian Presidential Elections

  • Wauw, I did not realize that I kind of Like talking about politics movements occurring in Indonesia right now.
  • Megawati Sukarnoputri seems to need Prabowo of Gerindra to support her popularity.
  • Prabowo Subianto, I believe realize that he is being popular by the members of the PDIP (nationalist party) who feels and needs some new ideas and new fresh person to jack up its status in front of the Indonesian Voters in the coming Indonesian Presidential Elections.
  • However, Golkar is also exploring to have sort of engagement with Prabowo Subianto to boost Jusuf Kalla in competing with Bambang Susilo Yudhoyono.
  • But Jusuf Kalla is facing internal problems between its own circle in Golkar which is supporting Akbar Tanjung to be the Vice President in maintaining Coalition with Democrat.
  • We can see that some elements in GOLKAR are not confident with itself in promoting Jusuf Kalla as the Presidential Candidate from Golkar or promoting Akbar Tanjung, because Golkar is not prepared to be out of the Top Positions as President or Vice President.
  • In this kind of situation, many things and emerging new progress may erupt to the surface, where Prabowo Subianto maybe submitted as the other prospective Presidential Candidate, if GOLKAR and PDIP decided to establish its coalition against the Block of SBY on the other side, but not through proposing each of its Parties candidate Jusuf Kalla nor Megawati Sukarnoputri, but rather compromising to mutually agree in proposing Prabowo Subianto as their Presidential candidate representing their Coalition which consists among others of GOLKAR, PDIP,GERINDRA, HANURA.
  • We can see that anything can happen ..in this coming minutes before the dead line date of 10th May 2009 as last date to propose its Presidential and Vice President candidate.
  • in the Kompas Newspaper dated 29 April 2009, there are rumors within the GOLKAR Party that Wiranto the former Military General form Hanura is mentioned to be the Vice President candidate to accompany Jusuf Kalla as the Presidential Candidate.
  • From the writers perspective if GOLKAR and PDIP coalition is intending to compete with the proved popular President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, then there must be a "Shock Therapy" Presidential Candidate from their Coalition such as Prabowo Subiyanto, who is popular with its motto to make "Changes", where he is combination of Military background, coming from intellectual and wealthy family, and the son of the popular person Sumitro, where he can speak English very fluently and was educated from West point USA, which will give the positive effect to boost this Coalition of PDIP, GOLKAR and GERINDRA, and HANURA in facing the Coalition of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
  • We can observe, that at the same time, all the other Parties are also in the move of making its coalition and political moves, including the two strong proposals within the PAN internal circles where Amien Rais is promoting Hatta Rajasa (entrepreneur back ground) from PAN ( moderate intellectual religion background party) to be the proposed Vice President for supporting the President Candidate from Demokrat, whereas PKS ( Muslim Religion background) are also closing its position in the coalition with Demokrat by also proposing its own Vice President candidate .
  • It is really interesting to watch the developments day by day since time is the essence due to the dead line in proposing the President and the Vice President from each of such blocks.
  • We can see that interesting Political Developments are happening in Indonesia, since all Parties are fighting for their peace of power taste through Constitution.
  • All the Indonesian realize that this Nation has to go forward in developing its Political and economical development progress facing ahead in this Global Economical crisis.
