Jusf Kalla Says Medical Check shows He Thinks Fast

All the Indonesian Presidential and Vice President has to perform Medical Check up which is held at RSPAD Gatot Subroto Military Hospital Gatot Subroto, physically and mentally.

The funny story is that after the Medical Check up Yusuf Kalla said to the press that the checking of his health shows that he can think fast.

This is just like a political health statement since Jusuf Kalla political campaign motto is always that he is quick is making decision where he demonstrates it through his quick move in declaring himself as the President Candidate from Golkar Party and Wiranto as Vice President Candidate from Hanura Party.

The result of the Medical Check up shall be reported to KPU ((Public Election Committee). Jakarta, May 18,2009 Agung Supomo Suleiman

Frustating listening to reaction of the Parties

  • Well, I am trying to write something about what I have in mind right now
  • sometimes its really stressful, when you watch the coalition parties in Indonesia, where all parties are really striving to get the seats as the Vice President Candidate
  • Actually, we need a statesman who can think clear without disrupted by partially parties interest.
  • From the Media, we can read that Demokrat Party are proposing Boediono who has professionals economic background to be the Vice President candidate accompanying Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
  • this invites reaction from the other Parties, which says that such Vice President Candidate must be from a Party and not from professionals.
  • if not in the Parliament, the Cabinet will face problems in proposing a policy.
  • Me as a layman in the street just would like to say, that sometimes it is really frustrating listening to the reaction of such Parties.
  • Why is it so ?
  • It is just because everybody seems to be only busy fighting to get seats in the Top Executive regardless, whether such Party has a qualified candidate or not to be in such Top Level Position.
  • I am just man in the street who looks from a distance relating to this coalition of Parties who are all striving to get a piece of the Power Seats in the Top Cabinet.

  • Golkar and Hanura together with PDIP, PPP and Gerindra had signed a coalition for the Parliament. Immediately afterwards Jusuf KALLA has made a quick political move by making a quick decision and declaring that Golkar had announced Jusuf Kalla as its President Candidate and Wiranto from Hanura as the Vice President.
  • This is the First Presidential Candidate and Vice Presidential Candidate, which had been announced officially by a Party in this 2009 Presidential Election.
  • As we all are aware Jusuf Kalla has the entrepreneur and businessman background, while Wiranto has the military back ground. Having an entrepreneur background, Jusuf Kalla is used to make quick moves after knowing that at least the big Coalition between PDIP,PPP,GERINDRA, HANURA for the Parliament level had been signed, leaving the Presidential Candidate and Vice President from this Big Coalition to be still pending.
  • Wiranto had also responded in making the quick moves by not wanting to lost this momentum, to agree in making such one step backwards, but is still within the Executive Top 2 level as Vice President Candidate.
  • The most interesting part, with this development is that between and among the members of the coalition of GOLKAR, HANURA, PDIP (Nationalist Party), PPP (Moslem Party) and Gerindra, which had signed coalition for the Parliament, there may be sort of an understanding that each of the members of such coalition may compete each other in proposing its President and Vice President Candidate, or these actually may reflect a real hard and tough situation, is occurring between the Leaders of this Big Coalition, since all the Leaders namely Jusuf Kalla, Megawati Sukarnoputri and Prabowo are all striving to be the No 1 President Candidate.
  • As I had earlier observed idealistically, the Coalition that has to be established by the opposing Coalition Party, who wants to compete with Susilo Bambang Suyudhono has to be a combination between massive Voters and Big Parties such as Golkar and PDIP, which Parties is respectively actually winning in gaining 14% of the Parliament Election 9 April 2009 due to its long time established experiences and such new born star Prabowo Subianto which can for sure "Jack Up" AND BOOST UP the numbers of Voters in competing with Bambang Susilo Yudhoyono.
  • However, in pragmatical terms, since there seems to be a tough situation between their Leaders, Jusuf Kalla, as a risk taker and a fast mover, has taken his quick Political Moves, by declaring such Presidential Candidate, to end up the uncertainty condition.
  • We can futher see, that Wiranto, who previously was also declaring himself to be the Presidential Candidate, had accepted to move one step backwards, by agreeing to be the Vice President Candidate accompanying Jusuf Kalla. It appears that Jusuf Kalla is making such quick step to avoid the strengthening of the internal problems occurring inside GOLKAR, where there are parts of members of the Gokar Party who still insists to be in coalition with Demokrat Party of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.
  • Jusuf Kalla also said that he realized, that it is a pity that GOLKAR coalition with Demokrat Party has to break up, but Jusuf Kalla said that by Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono making the criteria for the Vice President Candidate who will accompany SBY, is a signal from Susilo, that SBY does no longer wants to have a coalition with Golkar or Jusuf Kalla.
  • Accordingly, Jusuf Kalla says that GOLKAR has to have an identity for itself. As a businessman Jusuf Kalla, for sure always dares to make risks in his live including of losing his challenge to be the elected President Candidate.
  • Based on such background, even though the percentage of GOLKAR is 14% in the Quick Count Legislative Election of 2009, Jusuf Kalla does not want to just withdraw from this opportunity to forward himself as the Presidential Candidate and shall leave to the Voters as to whether they are choosing Jusuf Kalla to be their next President or not.
  • Jusuf Kalla is aware that Prabowo Subiyanto, is one of the popular figure from GERINDRA, who wins 4% share of the Legislative Election seat based on the Quick Count, but Jusuf Kalla feels that since GOLKAR has won 14% share, Jusuf Kalla does not want to lose this chance of challenging himself as the Presidential Candidate.
  • However, Jusuf Kalla is really a person who likes to challenge himself to participate on the Presidential Candidate and Wiranto from Hanura reads this opportunity, since this is the only chance to joint participating as the Vice President even though Wiranto was initially also submitting himself as the Presidential Candidate.
  • From my observance, Wiranto realized that Prabowo Subiyanto seems to be popular within the PDIP Party to be suggested as the Vice President accompanying Megawati Sukarnoputeri from PDIP, and thus Wiranto is left no choice but to joint coalition with GOLKAR, within the this Big Coalition of PDIP,GOLDKAR,HANURA,GOLKAR and responded positive to Jusuf Kalla or GOLKAR's request to participate as the Vice President Candidate accompanying Jusuf Kala as GOLKAR's Presidential Candidate.
  • Relating to PDIP, Megawati seems to be in a dilema situation, since if Megawati still insists on being the Presidential Candidate, it is unlikely that Prabowo will agree to be the Vice President accompanying Megawati Sukarnoputeri. This predication is just a wild guess, since Prabowo Subiyanto seems to be smart in playing the strategy to be still in his position in competing to be one of the Presidential Candidate, knowing his popularity in the eyes of the Voters who are eager to have some changes in the Indonesian Political Arena.
  • However, for Prabowo Subiyanto to keep on his desire to participate in the Presidential Election, he may have to work hard in gathering other Parties to fulfil the limitation of Parliament shares of seats and votes to be able to be legitimate in participating as Presidential Candidate.
  • Based on the above development, it will very interesting to see the outcome of such dilemma situation, where all the smart person shall play and show their power play strategy in this era of Democracy occurring in Indonesia.
  • On the latest development relating to PAN (Muslim intellectual Party), Pan had declared officially to joint coalition with Democrat Party and named Hatta Rajasa as the Vice President Candidate to accompany Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono as the Presidential Candidate from Demokrat Party.
  • This idea was really coming from Amin Rais, the former Head of PAN, where Amin says that since DEMOKRAT wins 20 % in the Legislative Election 2009, PAN Party has to joint coalition with DEMOKRAT, to be in the top position of the Executive by proposing Hatta Rajasa who has an entrepreneur background to fill in the empty position which formerly was Jusuf Kalla's seat.
  • This really ends up the issue of whether PAN shall join coalition with GERINDRA where Soetrisno shall be proposed as Vice President Candidate from PAN accompanying Prabowo Subiyanto as President Candidate from Democrat Party.
  • We observe that there are around 19 names of Vice President Candidate as mentioned by the speaker of Demokrat Party, but Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono until this present moment has not make any decision, which of such 19 names shall be his candidate for the Vice Presidential Candidate accompanying SBY as the Presidential Candidate.
  • Well, the above are the latest report from Jakarta relating to this interesting changes of political map in the President and Vice President Candidate for the 2009 Presidential Election in Indonesia

  • As we observe, there is a significant difference being a political observer and political member of a Political Party.
  • What is the difference?
  • Well the big difference is that as an observer even though your just an amateur observer like me, can say and make an analysis without having being burden of being “kicked off” or “fired” by anybody, because we are just a free writer like me who has no boss expect we have to be responsible to our Creator as the Single Source of POWER who creates this world without feeling fatigue tired in guarding and preserving the Earth and the Sky (Surat Kursi / Al Baqarah paragraph 255)…. GOD ‘S KURSI extends over the Heavens and the Earth and HE feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. AND HE is the Most High, The Most Great (This verse is called Ayat ul Kursi)
  • From my experience in this life, it is a matter of choosing as whether we want to be a carrier person in an organization or whether you chose to be free and independent outside an organization.
  • For me, after experiencing 11 Years running my Law Firm at my own risk together with the full support of my wife, I really realize that I have actually chosen to be an independent person namely Lawyer as well as writer and observer, without being aware since I have elected to follow my heart.
  • In such independent capacity, you are really free to write and make an independent analysis, and you really feel free and independent in exploring you mind related to what you have observed, just like from a "Bird's Eye View" flying in the sky and watching the world hehehe...
  • As we can also observe the speaker of the Political Party can not speak nor say independently upon the prediction of who or which Presidential candidate are comparable and competitive with the existing figures as shown on the results of the Quick Count, because such speaker are blocked within the limits of his Political Party rules of birocracy and levels of authority to speak.
  • Thus, sometimes such speaker appears to be much more as a politician who is trying to maintain power without seeing the real facts of figures being shown in the Quick Count.
  • Accordingly, by nature you have to chose as to whether you want to be an independent person or person who is surrounded and limited with an organization or in these political aspects as member in a Political Party.
  • For me at least for this present moment I rather chose and elect to be independent since I really like to write and express independently what I see and observe in this live journey.
  • Cheers
