The Runaway Governor of West Sumatra

The works of a governor of a province that has been struck by Tsunami must have been so frustrating that he wants to runaway from his responsibilities.

That's what I thought when I read the news about the Governor of West Sumatra Irwan Prayitno going to Germany although part of the province, the Islands of Mentawai is under the state of emergency after struck by Tsunami on Monday 25 October killing more than 400 people.

Please find below the story that I have quoted from The Jakarta Globe.

Sangat menyedihkan!
Padahal Presiden, Wapres, menteri2, pejabat2 tinggi lainnya berama2 kedaerah dia.

Thank you for your kind words.

SSenang berjumpa lagi dengan anda.

If a captain abandons his sinking ship before other passengers and other members of the crew have been saved, his career will be finished.

If a politician/administrator abandons his people who are in a state of lethal emergency and/or in a desperate situation which calls for aid, he should resign or removed from office or voted out of office at next elections.

I do not know what to say. probably true that he was frustrating. but as a governor, his actions can not be justified.

The leader escapes when the people need him? It's horrible. But he has come to his own stupid decision, next time at the election when he needs the people for the votes, I hope people will leave him back in despair. Take that!

@Dream Catcher,
Yeah it's no surprise if a politician do that.

I have doubts on politicians non of them are worth my trust. Every results of elections are always bad.

Thank you, it means a lot to me.
I'll check you blog which reminds me of your beautiful country Rumania.

You are right, his action cannot be justified.

@Mobil Keluarga Terbaik,
Very sad indeed my friend

I also hope that people would not give their votes to him in nest election,

I'm worried about people living in those regions of the tsunami. You know the people united will never be beaten? We need better choose our rulers! I'm fine. I hope that you too are fine. In my blog and in my songs, it's all cry 'Peace, love and social justice to my country and the world. Especially my "brethren" of the Indonesian region and all affected by the tsunami.
