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.


Jusuf Kalla (Indonesia Vice President / Indonesia President Candidate).

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”.

Socialite Case : Manohara Odelia Pinot

April 26, 2009

Young Indonesian model, Manohara Odelia Pinot, Who married with Prince of Kelantan, Malaysia (Tengku Temmenggong Kelantan) was kidnapped and got a sexual harrashment from her husband. Some sites tell this is jokes and defend Malaysian Prince and his Kingdom of Kelantan, but this is not jokes for Indonesian peoples, this is was proved and need to be proceed later on.


Manohara Odelia Pinot.

Not to blame once again, but this is a truth that Malaysian also did un-racional things to Indonesian citizens that living in their country, for example is what happened to a lot of Indonesian workers (TKI) that got sexual harrashment or tortured by Malaysian.

To see this Manohara problems, in many perspective, such as many news was released, that Manohara’s mother selling her for enrich herself or to enter the socilite lifes, nobility, etc. The way that news report was unproved that Malaysian said, but this is a problems, we can not separate this from other posibility, just for assumtion.

And then, how this problems means for us as Indonesia peoples? not to blame once again, sometimes, for example Manohara’s mom who blind because of luxurious, just gives her daughter to Kelantan’s prince, that she assumed has position, luxurious and nobility, it is show that Indonesia have a lower bargaining position, in economics, politics and laws.

Should SBY involves in this problems? in his capability as president of Indonesia, SBY have a strong chance to solve this problems, but it is not president responsibility, this step can be putted to Indonesia Foreign Affairs Depatment, but Manohara’s case not that easy as we know, to much aspects to be involved in this case, let se how it is work?
