"My principle is simple, if you want munaslub choose Golkar figures in addition to qualify, the terms that many ever become administrators, at least 5 years, of course good people, and serve the party," said JK to the media crew.

Regarding the position of Airlangga who is still minister of the Working Cabinet, the Vice President said there is no law stating that the minister needs to stop to become party official.

"There is no rule, I used to be the Vice President is also chairman of the party, its okay, Mr. SBY, Mega Mega, the entire party chairman and even a president," he said.
