Desi Ratnasari, a prospective Politician

It seems that the upcoming election for the Chief/Vice Chief of Regency in Sukabumi, West Java, on May 2010, will be filled with movie actresses as candidates.

First, there was movie actress Ayu Azhari who requested the Indonesian Democratic Party In Struggle (PDIP) to nominate her as candidate Vice Chief of Regency.

Recently, the media reported that singer/actress Desi Ratnasari (36) has been approached by the Democrat Party to be a candidate Vice Chief of Regency in the said election.

For details, please click here and here.

I am not a fan of Ayu or Desi, all I know is that both are popular movie actresses in Indonesia, but I felt that a person who wants to be a candidate in an election for Chief/Vice of a Regency should have more that just beauty and popularity. The important thing is that he/she must be able to lead and manage the area and its people.

I think it is a trend that an artist who is past his or her golden years is still suffering from a celebrity's glamorous delusion. This fallen angel of Desy Ratnasari is no exception.

By being a politician she hopes that she will get a new lease of celebrity life!

I think you are right. But if she/ or he is capable to lead and manage professionally the area and its people, why not?

Yari NK said...

Yes I agree with you on that matter.

I only hope that the better politicians who are not artists are not eclipsed by those new kids on the block because they are less popular though I realise that democracy does not tell an artist from the rest apart...

I also hope that the nomination of celebrities as candidates for public positions would not hinder many other people who are more eligible to take the positions due to their talents, educations and experiences.
