None of the political parties that failed to secure spots in the runoff for Jakarta’s gubernatorial election have indicated whether they will support incumbent Governor Fauzi Bowo or Surakarta Mayor Joko “Jokowi” Widodo come Sept. 20.
The United Development Party (PPP), which was scheduled to name which candidates it would support in the runoff on Sunday afternoon, canceled its announcement.
It is not the parties that will make decision but the people. The parties should not be wasting time and taking credit from the candidates!
Voters are going to use their rights independently.
Hopefully, the next governor will develop Jakarta into a better place for living. He could provide solutions for traffic congestion. And I hope he could fulfill the promises made during the election campaign.
