Ridwan Kamil urges W. Java netizens to end debate on teacher's dismissal
The Jakarta Post
Ridwan Kamil, the projected winner of West Java’s gubernatorial election according to quick count results, has called on netizens to stop their heated debate over the dismissal of a teacher in Bekasi, West Java.
The teacher of a private school was reportedly fired last week for voting for Ridwan and his running mate Uu Ruzhanul Ulum, and not the pair suggested by the school’s officials.
"The debate on the matter should stop. Now we can focus on West Java's development," Ridwan, popularly known as Kang Emil, said on Saturday.
"Let it go," said Saan Mustopa, the head of Ridwan’s campaign team. "The West Java election took place peacefully. We only need to wait for the KPU's [the General Elections Commission] decision. Don't aggravate [the situation] with issues like this." (stu)
