JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – PDI-P Secretary General Hasto Kristiyanto insinuated former Democratic Party Chairperson Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono ( SBY) about the ownership of the Cepu Block which shifted from Pertamina to Exxon Mobil when SBY was the sixth President of the Republic of Indonesia.
This was conveyed by Hasto in response to the statement that the Chairperson of the PDI-P Megawati Soekarnoputri missed twice Presidential Election 2004. This statement was conveyed by SBY through the story of former Democrat Party Secretary General Marzuki Alie.
“With Mr. Marzuki’s statement, I also understand why the Cepu Block, which was Pertamina’s working area, was given to Exxon Mobil after the 2004 presidential election. So, in this regard, the Indonesian people and nation are missing, “said Hasto in a written statement, Wednesday (17/2/2021).
Hasto also considered that the statement actually showed that SBY who created the image design as if he was the Coordinating Minister for Political and Security Affairs (Menko Polkam) was wronged by Megawati who was his superior when he was still the fifth President of the Republic of Indonesia.
When it was rumored that SBY felt wronged by Megawati, so he chose to resign from his post as Coordinating Minister for Political and Security Affairs.
“It is proven that since the beginning Pak SBY has had his own image design, including the term ‘missed twice’ as a reflection of his morality,” said Hasto in a written statement, Wednesday (17/2/2021).
“So now the people can judge that what was accused by Pak SBY has been wronged by Bu Mega, in fact the historical truth proves that Pak SBY wronged himself for the sake of image politics,” said Hasto.
Previously, Marzuki revealed SBY’s statement that Megawati failed twice during the 2004 presidential election. At that time, Megawati was running for president with Hasyim Muzadi as her deputy, but lost to SBY-Jusuf Kalla.
At that time, both SBY and Kalla served as ministers in the cabinet led by Megawati. Sbay is the Coordinating Minister for Politics and Security and Kalla is the Coordinating Minister for People’s Welfare.
“Pak SBY said, ‘Pak Marzuki, I will pair up with Pak JK. This Bu Mega will miss twice this time. Her first slip moved. The second he missed was Mr. JK. That’s the sentence, “said Marzuki as quoted from the YouTube channel Akbar Faisal Uncensored, Thursday (11/2/2021).
When asked again by Akbar the meaning of the cheating statement twice, Marzuki was reluctant to discuss further.
Akbar then asked again whether SBY’s statement meant that the sixth President of Indonesia had indeed planned from the start to run for president in the 2004 presidential election.
Marzuki was reluctant to answer again. He was worried that he would misinterpret SBY’s statement.
“I don’t understand, I don’t want to go too far. I just caught the existing speech. I don’t want to misinterpret it later, “said Marzuki.
“People missed twice could mean now I quit (from the ministerial position), later Mr. JK will quit (from the ministerial position). Can be considered twice. Please, people’s perceptions vary, ”continued Marzuki.
