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.
