Greatindonesia.co.id, Jakarta – Presidential Candidate Prabowo Subianto sincerely apologized to all parties for the fabricated stories Ratna Sarumpaet shared, despite it not being Subianto’s fault. He apologized because when Sarumpaet publicly lied about her condition, she was a member of Subianto’s campaign team.
“Let’s think positively. Thankfully she was not physically attacked, and to the people of Indonesia, I apologize, but I do not feel sorry if we rushed our conclusion. My team is new, only months old, but there’s no alibi, if you’re wrong, then you’re wrong,” Subianto said in a press conference Wednesday night at his Kertanegara residence.
As chairman on the National Committee to Elect Prabowo-Sandi, Subianto is ready to take the blame for the actions of the committee’s members.
“I am the leader [of the committee], I take responsibility,” Subianto said. “I, as an individual, and as the leader of our committee, apologize to the public for amplifying something which we weren’t convinced yet of its truth.”
During the press conference, Gerinda Party Chairman Subianto also said that Sarumpaet has been asked to resign from her role as National Campaigner.
“I would like to emphasize that, one, I have asked Mrs. Ratna Sarumpaet to recuse herself from the committee, and she has done so through a letter,” Subianto said.
Subianto will also let authorities take legal action against Sarumpaet.
“Two, I will not hinder any necessary legal actions, she [Sarumpaet] needs to take responsibility for her actions. That is the essence,” Subianto said. “We also do not tolerate false news, and that is why we firmly decide that if a member of our team publicly spread lies we will reprimand such actions. We will ask authorities to take the necessary legal actions. (skr)
PRABOWO-SANDI PAIR APPOINTS HASYIM DJOJOHADIKUSUMO TO FILE SUIT AT MK
Greatindonesia.co.id, Jakarta – Prabowo Subianto’s brother, Hashim Djojohadikusumo, has been appointed to represent the Prabowo-Sandi pair in filing a lawsuit at the Constitutional Court (MK) to challenge presidential election results.
“Mr. Hashim Djojohadikusumo has been appointed to lead our team of lawyers. Tomorrow, prior to the deadline, a team of lawyers will file a lawsuit at the Constitutional Court,” Vice Presidential candidate number 02 Sandiaga Uno said here on Thursday (23/5/2019).
Speaking at the residence of Presidential candidate number 02 Prabowo Subianto on Kertanegara IV Street, Uno said filing the lawsuit at MK was a measure that the Prabowo-Sandi pair will take to ensure that they remain on the constitutional road.
On Friday, the Prabowo-Sandi pair will announce its team of lawyers who will represent them at the Constitutional Court, he said, adding that senior lawyer Otto Hasibuan’s role in the team would also be disclosed on Friday.
Coordinator of the Prabowo-Sandi camp’s Spokesperson Dahnil Anzar Simanjuntak said earlier that his group’s team of lawyers would comprise Rikrik Rizkian, Bambang Widjojanto, Irman Putra Sidin, and Denny Indrayana.
The General Elections Commission (KPU) has announced the final results of the recent parliamentary and presidential elections, detailing the victory of the Joko Widodo (Jokowi)-Ma’ruf Amin pair on early Tuesday.
The final tally that the KPU announced at around 1:28 a.m. indicated that the Jokowi- Amin pair had secured 85 million votes, or 55.5 percent of the national vote, as compared to contenders Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno’s with 68 million votes, or 44.5 percent.
The Jokowi-Amin pair declared victory, while the Prabowo-Sandi pair rejected the KPU’s official results and vowed to challenge it by filing an official complaint with the Constitutional Court (MK).
This unfinished political process sparked a mass protest from the Prabowo-Sandi pair’s supporters, who alleged massive fraud during the presidential elections.
The police allowed demonstrators to stage a rally until they finished performing Tarawih, the evening prayers during the holy month of Ramadan. As told by National Police spokesman Brig. Gen. Dedi Prasetyo, peaceful demonstrators left the Bawaslu building area at around 9 p.m. local time.
However, according to Prasetyo, two hours later, some 100 people again gathered in front of the Bawaslu building and destroyed the barbed-wired barricades. Instead of leaving the scene, they attacked the police by throwing stones, wood, and Molotov cocktails at them.
Tensions rose and led to a riot in the Tanah Abang area of Central Jakarta from Tuesday evening to early Wednesday (22/5/2019).
The post-election riot has claimed eight lives and injured 541 rioters, as of Thursday at 11.00 a.m., Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said. (sya)
