INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Vice President Jusuf Kalla urges that the Golkar General Assembly (Munaslub) can be held no later than December 2017 to immediately elect a successor to the Chairman of Setya Novanto who is a suspect in the KTP-El corruption case.
"You can say that there must be a munaslub, that's the agreement, I think in December there should be a change, in accordance with what the plenary approves if the pretrial is lost, or it is not likely to be difficult," said JK at the Vice President's Office in Jakarta, Tuesday (27/11/2017)
The pre-trial referred to by JK is the legal route that Setya Novanto proposes to the court to review the legal process conducted by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) which makes him a suspect in the KTP-El corruption case.
According to the vice president who is also a senior politician of Golkar, whatever the pretrial results that the first trial will be held on 30 November 2017, the name Setya Novanto and Golkar has tarnished corruption case so it needs to be cleaned up.
"The pretrial is not prosecuting the substance, judging the process alone, Yes, the process could have been said he won, people would still think there was a problem," he told media crews.
Therefore, the vice president hopes munaslub can be done to rescue the image of Golkar elektabilitasnya decreased due Setya Novanto case.
JK argues that the negative public image of Golkar is reflected in the declining survey results of the Poltracking survey on Sunday (26/11), which indicates Golkar is third with 10.9 percent after the PDI Perjuangan with 23.4 percent and Gerindra Party with 13.6 percent.
"The way to fix it is that the boss should be clean and that should be the problem, so it must be led by a cleaner and then certainly have a clear program," he said.
