"As a result, it can be ascertained that the case in Lamongan is not accompanied by PKH but PKH beneficiaries." PKH recipients are the people, the matter of political choice is their right to support who," he said.

Idrus asserted that if in the future found PKH Assistant to work or abused his work to support one candidate in the election then he must make a stamped statement to choose to remain a PKH companion or to resign.

"PKH is a government program to alleviate poverty and therefore should not be misused," he said.

Director General of Social Protection and Social Security of the Ministry of Social Affairs, Harry Hikmat, said that professionalism of companion is needed to reduce government poverty target to below 10 percent this year.

For that, counselors will be given various skills to help beneficiary families or KPM can graduate or get out of poverty.
