Wives Competing for Husband's Office
Soetrisno does not seem to be interested to be elected for a second term. Maybe that's the reason why his two wives are very eager to nominate themselves as candidate Regent in the election.
Soetrisno's first wife is his legitimate wife, i.e. Haryatie a Medical Doctor (Picture-Left), supported by the opposition PDIP and Golkar. While his second wife is his illegitimate wife that he married based on the Islamic law only (Siri Marriage) but not registered on the official registry i.e. Nurlaela (Picture-Right) who has been the Chief of a Village of Wates for 24 years, and supported by PAN which is part of ruling coalition.

Considering the above and the fact that both ladies are supported by different political parties, it would be very interesting to know further news regarding their rivalry.
