"The emergence of this sole candidate is the failure of political parties in the regeneration process," said Siti Zuhro after attending the halalbihalal KAHMI Banten in Serang, Wednesday (4/7/2018)

She said the political parties should provide education to the community healthy democratic way. Do not let the people a single candidate who has no other choice to become a candidate for leaders in the area.

"Political parties as a pillar of democracy and state assets must show the quality," said Zuhro.

According to her, the presence of a single candidate in three areas in Banten in the elections simultaneously in 2018 is an unfavorable indication in democracy.

Therefore, it is not only for political parties but also for the society to participate in 'saying' that in a democracy it cannot bring up only one person or the monopoly of a particular candidate's power, but the community must be given the choices of the candidate's leader.
