INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - Banyuwangi Regent Abdullah Azwar Anas returned the mandate of assignment as a candidate for Vice Governor of East Java through PDI Perjuangan for local elections (Pilkada) 2018.
In a press release received by media crew in Jakarta on Saturday (6/1/2017) written a number of clarifications and information from Anas related to the polemic that occurred before the elections of East Java.
"For the sake of my responsibility to the society that the leader must be mandate, also for the realization of the populist programs of the party in development for the prosperity of the people of East Java, and then I give back the mandate of assignment as Cawagub Jatim to the party," he said.
The following is the complete statement of Bacawagub Jatim Azwar Anas regarding the reversal of the mandate: Dear Kiai, community leaders, comrades in arms, proud press associates, and the whole East Java community, especially the people of Banyuwangi whom I love very much.
Assalamualaikum Wr Wb Through deep reflection after morning prayers, by asking for enlightenment and strength from Allah SWT over all the dynamics that happened, with this I submit some things.
Various trials, temptations of power, bribery, even inhumane ways I have been through in almost two periods lead Banyuwangi, and alhamdulillah, I can overcome and the people of Banyuwangi give appreciation for my service work with various indicators of rigid and measurable improvement, such as poverty reduction and rapid increase in per capita income of the people.
However, when I proceed in the nomination of governor, there are parties who use all means that sacrifice the honor of my family, the people of Banyuwangi and East Java, as well as the scholars and elders who have been guiding me.
Therefore, for my responsibility to the community, that the leader must be mandate, also for the realization of the populist programs of the party in development for the prosperity of the people of East Java, then I give back the mandate of assignment as candidate vice governor East Java to the party.
I sincerely thank Mrs. Megawati Soekarnoputri, the big family of PDI Perjuangan and Nahdliyin who have trusted me. Megawati's mother has taught us all to uphold commitment to the aspects of leadership.
Finally, I still believe that those who use politics all the way will be given justice by Allah SWT. I believe there is a justice that will illuminate this imperfect servant of God.
In the future, I will struggle with all my might and efforts, together with the people of Banyuwangi, to bring prosperity to all as we have done in almost eight years.
Wassalamualaikum Wr Wb Meanwhile, until now there has been no official information from DPP PDI Perjuangan and DPD PDI Perjuangan Jatim.
However, according to information circulating, this afternoon the Secretary General of DPP PDI Perjuangan is scheduled to meet the Chairman of DPP PDI Perjuangan Megawati Soekarnoputri at his residence in the area of Jalan Teuku Umar, Central Jakarta, specifically discuss the issue.
