Leaders Coalition : Jusuf Kalla – Wiranto

May 1, 2009

This Year, What really “happening” in Indonesia is General Election (Pemilu), the winner is Democrat Party (Partai Demokrat / PD), that bring SBY (Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono) again to becoming Indonesia President. Not like 2004, now SBY will not coming with JK (Jusuf Kalla), know as Indonesia Vice President in present days.

It is because this day, May 1. 2009 JK with his party (Golkar Party) choose to separate with SBY, it is to becoming President as well. JK has Vice-President candidate, he is General (Purn.) Wiranto from Hanura Party (Partai Hati Nurani Rakyat). They was announced to the publics for this coalition.

it is good coalition or not?

First, to see from political perspective, its hard to compete with SBY, the party is to strong, powerful and believable. In the other hand, Megawati Sukarno putri (Indonesia Democracy Party-Struggle) also have a power and she is not yet choose the sides to do coalition, from the calculation and estimation, she is will duet with General (Purn) Prabowo Subianto from Gerindra Party. JK-Wiranto will facing the truth that SBY is to strong as well, and Megawati also has a huge number of followers.

Second, another perspective, historical truth about JK-Wiranto it is almost clean, except little Wiranto roles in 1998 tragedy (fall of Suharto), but for all of this they are clean as well. Especially JK, he has good track records, for example to solve Aceh conflicts, he is a main maker in that peaceful agreement with Gerakan Aceh Merdeka (GAM) as separatism movement – read book: “To See The Unseen“.

For Indonesia voters, it is better to be wise to choose, but to lead, to solve and to built this country, whoever the President, as a citizens we must support them and respects their aim to make “better Indonesia”.
