Ani Yudoyono: a Presidential Candidate?

 
During the general elections in 2004 and 2009, the political party of President Susilo Bambang Yudoyono (SBY) i.e. the Democrat Party, won majority popular vote

And based on those victories, the Democrat Party nominated SBY as candidate in the 2004 and 2009 Presidential elections, which were won triumphantly.

According to the amended Constitution of 1945, SBY can only hold Presidential office for two terms,  five years each, therefore he cannot be nominated again when his second office term ends in 2014.

As the strongest political party, the Democrat Party should have an eligible candidate for the next President election, so as to compete with candidates from other strong parties such as the Golkar Party which seems to plant to nominate its Chairman Aburizal Bakrie, the business conglomerate, as candidate.

Although, Aburizal Bakrie's name has been marred by the disastrous Hot Mudflow caused by his company's failure to follow standard procedure in gas exploration in Sidoardjo, East Java, however until now he is the most popular candidate.

Of course, there is former President Megawati of the Indonesian Democratic Party for Struggle (PDIP) but many people questioned her ability, besides she is too old  (65).

So if the Democrat Party wants to lead the government again in 2014-2019, it has to nominate someone who can beat the popularity and quality of Aburizal Bakrie. But unfortunately, the Party doesn't seem to have one.
Its Chairman, Anas Urbaningrum is said to be allegedly connected with the wrong doings by members of Democrat Party, its other leader i.e. the Speaker of House of Representatives Marzuki Alie is not popular because of the bad public statements he has made.

Considering this fact, one of the Democrat Party leaders i.e. former lawyer Ruhut Sitompul has repeatedly made public statements saying that the best candidate would be President SBY's wife namely Mrs. Ani Yudoyono (click here).

However, according to the presidential spokesman Julian Pasha (click here) SBY has no plan to prepare any member of his family to be his successor.

Bakrie, Megawati, Ani? I think the Indonesian people deserve (even) better candidates.

But 65 too old? I don't think Rpnald Reagan or Winston Churchill woould have agreed. Ronald Reagan was seventy when he became President ('81), Winston Churchill 66 when he became Prime minister in '40 :).

hmm..
kalau Aburizal bakrie saya ragu dia akan bisa maju sebagai calon presiden. masalah nya dia masih terikat dengan masalah lumpur lapindo.

Kalau Ani yudhoyono?
hmm...dia punya kontribusi apa ya untuk masyarakat? rasa nya kurang terlihat.hehehe

tapi kandidat yang diajukan partai politik kok tidak menarik ya. semoga saja ada kandidat baru, :)

triesti said...

wonder who's the next possible candidate..

Luke Regler said...

Hi Harry, In your opinion who is best suited to run Indonesia out of the current list of candidates and while we are at it, Jakarta as well. When do you throw your hat into the ring for this?!

Harry Nizam said...

@Colson,
I agree that Indonesians need some one much better than the persons I mentioned.
Hmmmm, I agree that 65 is not too old as long as the person has excellent quality like Churchill and Reagan.

@Fahrizi,
Mari kita berdoa agar muncul calon2 pemimpin baru.

@Triesti,
I am also wondering like you, and I am sure many Indonesians too.

@Luke,
It is not easy to tell. There are others like Mahfud MD the Chief of Constitutional Court, Sri Mulyani World Bank Director. But they are not back by strong political parties.
In Jakarta, I think the incumbent Governor Fauzi Wibowo will win the election.

@harry, OMG.. please not foke again... enough is enough.. he had his fun on the back of ours. He could only managed putting 3 extra busways (not even from scratch!) while increasing 18billion in his pocket in 3 years. thank you very much.

Billy said...

Hallo dear friend!Very good post...Regards

Harry Nizam said...

@Triesti,
I also agree that Fauzi Bowo (Foke) cannot be described as successful, and I believe that Jakarta needs a much better Governor.
But unfortunately none of the other candidates are really convincing.
I cannot imagine Jakarta governed by someone from out of town who is not familiar with the city.

@Billy,
Thank you for your visit and comment.

Hal bodoh jika Demokrat mencalonkan Ani sebagai kandidat capres 2014.

Harry Nizam said...

@Rekiprasetio,
Yes, let us hope so. Thanks.

@Aulawi,
We all hope that new and better leaders will appear after the 2014 elections.
