President Susilo Bambang Yudoyono (SBY) will end his second office term in 2014, and according to the amended Constitution of Indonesia, he cannot be nominated again as candidate in the next presidential election.
Although until now there is still no one who seems to be good enough to be the next president of Indonesia, but I am very certain that there is one person out of the 240 million population who is eligible to take that job.
In this regards, I would like to share with you an article that I have read in Kompas about the nomination of the Chief of the Constitutional Court Mahfud MD and Director of the International Monetary Fund Sri Mulyani as Presidential candidates.
As Indonesian citizens, both of them may be nominated as Presidential candidates if they fulfill requirements stipulated by the Presidential Election Law among others should be nominated by one or more political parties that won enough votes in the 2014 General election.
As far as I know, Sri Mulyani is not a member of a political party, while Mahfud is a former official of the National Awakening Party (PKB).
What do you think ?
