SBY, Democrat, 2014

President SBY told a meeting of Indonesian Young Leaders Forum in Jakarta last Thursday that he, his wife Ani Yudoyono or his kids, will not be running as candidates in the 2014 presidential election.

SBY also said he has not prepared a successor, and will he leave it all up to the people to decide who they want to elect as president in the election.

Speaking in a TV talk show last night, one of the leader in SBY's Democrat Party i.e Mubarak said that his party would welcome anyone, from inside or outside the party, who is eligible as candidate president in 2014.
He mentioned among others the name of  IMF Director Sri Mulyani.  

Some people believe that SBY's above statement is an effort to distract public attention from the big problems that his Democrat Party is facing after they dismissed Nazaruddin as General Treasurer because of Bribery and Corruption allegations. 

The problem became uncontrolled after Nazaruddin runaway to Singapore and refused to return home when the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) wants to question him on those allegations.

To me it's almost laughable if a political party states that it doesn't matter whether it's next leader is from within or from outside of the party...

And you may well be right that the timing of SBY's announcement is directly related to the present problems.

Yet I hope, for the benefit of RI, Sri Mulyani will indeed be running form president in '14.

Sro Mujlyani is okay, BUT the Golkar Party, PDIP and PKS will do their best to implicate her with the Bank Century case which is still pending until now.
Especially that she doesn't belong to any party.

It looks like watching "wayang kulit" (leather puppet). Sometimes we laugh at the jokes, but we feel very sad if our super hero doesn't win yet.

Hmm, about SBY's statement. I supposed that he just want to distract attention from the big problems his Democrat Party.

kalau kita amati mereka seperti lagi pada main petak umpet ya..hehe.permainan jaman kita anak anak ternyata bermanfaat saat dewasa dan jadi pemimpin.hehehe

Multibrand said...

Yes let's wait and see.

Looks like wayang kulit show. pak.

That's how politics are today.

Sule? ha ha ha ...

Very difficult to predict politicians behaviour.

Golkar memang paling dewasa dan canggih dibanding yang lain. Maklum 32 tahun jadi anak emas Soeharto.

@Wisata Murah,
Iya mereka seperti main tak umpet.

Not a very confident political party, I would suggest?

Aprianti said...

Yes I saw his speech on TV. But I see it more like an apathetism of SBY toward the chaotic situation in the country. It’s like he wanted to say between the lines “I can’t do anything about it anymore, and I (and family) no longer care”. Maybe just my imagination. :)

Multibrand said...

Yes you are right my friend.

Perhaps your imagination is right.
Who knows ? he he he ... lol
