Mahyudin Ensure Golkar Will Not Change Support For Jokowi
Berita Golkar - Vice Chairman of the Golkar Party Expert Board Mahyudin confirmed his party will not change support to President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo in the current government and as a presidential candidate in 2019 despite changing the chairman.
"Golkar cannot play such hypocrisy, supporting in front not in the back. So if we support the government, we will support Jokowi in 2019," Mahyudin said.
"In my opinion, from all the candidates for the general chairman who want to fight, all are the schools that agree we side with the government," Mahyudin said during the socialization of the four pillars of the People's Consultative Assembly (MPR) in Balikpapan on Saturday (12/9/2017).
According to him, all agree, whether it is Airlangga, Aziz Syamsuddin, Idrus Marham, or anyone who is later elected to be the new chairman of the Golkar Party, Golkar remains in government. Therefore, concerning support for Jokowi to run again as a presidential candidate in the 2019 Presidential Election, Mahyudin confirmed that his party remains in government, including supporting Jokowi in the 2019 Presidential Election.
According to Mahyudin, Golkar Party believes Jokowi still has very high level of electability and has great potential to win the 2019 race. "We are confident at the moment that Jokowi's potential to be elected is still very strong, and indeed the person is good," said the former regent of East Kutai.
Nevertheless, the decision will be determined in Extraordinary National Congress (Munaslub). As long as the Munaslub does not revoke Golkar's support for the government which is decided in the National Conference and National Leadership Meeting (Rapimnas), the new chairman must also implement the decision, he stressed in a statement received by parliamentary journalists in Jakarta, Saturday afternoon.
