He said his support for Jokowi is purely a personal decision and responsibility as a nation boy.
"I have observed the situation of national politics for the past four years. In my view, the friction and polarization of people using religious sentiments is increasingly worrying," he said.
Therefore, according to him, in the world of politics religious sentiments should not be done, religious sentiments can be utilized for the benefit of the ummah.
The two-period NTB governor also said he had never communicated with the Democrats in connection with his statement, including with the Muttasyar Nandlatul Wathan (NW) Council.
