The Prabowo Subianto-Hatta Rajasa
campaign team plans to deploy thousands of volunteers to safeguard the General
Elections Commission (KPU) during the announcement of the presidential election
results on July 22.
“The deployment is out of our
concern to safeguard the situation during the announcement,” Lt. Gen. (ret)
Yunus Yosfiah of the Prabowo-Hatta campaign team said on the sidelines of a security
briefing conducted by the campaign team on Thursday, as quoted by kompas.com.
He shrugged off a suggestion allegation
that the deployment could create the wrong impression in the field.
The security briefing was conducted
at the Padepokan Pencak Silat training center in the Taman Mini Indonesia Indah
recreation park on Thursday. Thousands of people attended the briefing.(dic)
