Text your say: Ibas caught
on camera

Your comments on lawmaker Edhie “Ibas” Baskoro Yudhoyono, President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s son, who was caught on camera leaving the House of Representatives only moments after signing the attendance list for a plenary session.

It’s a common practice that is no longer noticed. No one bothers anymore to say what they feel, let alone protest.

But I really appreciate that he has offered an apology and resigned from his post at the House.

It’s a bad example. As a son of the President and a member of the House, he has to set a good example to the people.

He must attend a plenary session and give opinions about the issues being discussed after signing the
attendance list.

Any members of the House who do not do their jobs properly could be considered as practicing corruption because they only want money from the state.

I hope whoever does such bad things receives punishment!

These are our representatives in the House.

If they cannot take money, they take time.

What a bad act! I’m really pessimistic for the young generation in Indonesia.

Someday Ibas will lead this country but I’m not sure he will be able to make this country better.
