Jakarta, CNN Indonesia –
Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs (Menko Polhukam) Mahfud MD said that the government still considers Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono (AHY) as Chairman of the Party Democrats. As for the extraordinary congress (KLB) which was held in Deli Serdang, North Sumatra, according to him, the government is still waiting for the results to be reported to the government.
Mahfud said, as long as there has been no report on the results of the Democrat KLB which appointed Moeldoko as General Chair, there has not been any legal problem.
“The official board (Democrat) at the government office is AHY, the son of Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono,” Mahfud said in a video statement received on Saturday (6/3).
According to him, the government has not yet considered the Democrat Party outbreak. This is because there has been no official notification to the government, especially regarding the resulting management structure.
Regarding the Extraordinary Congress held by a number of former Democratic Party cadres in Deli Serdang, North Sumatra, last Friday (5/3), according to Mahfud, it was only a cadre gathering event.
The government could not prevent the cadre meeting from what Jhonny Allen cs called the KLB.
Mahfud said that as long as these activities were not prohibited from violating legal provisions, from the place to the activities carried out.
“It is not at the State Palace, meaning that it does not violate certain prohibitions, not in places of worship, schools and others,” he said.
So said Mahfud, if someone asks whether or not the KLB activities in Medan are valid, the government has not been able to take a stand because until now there are no reports in the form of data or documents that need to be approved by the government.
Then he said, if there is a file on the KLB results, the government will review and review the results to make a decision.
“The government will judge this to be valid, this is illegitimate. The government is guided by the rules,” he said.
On that occasion, Mahfud acknowledged that the government is indeed in a difficult position if there are problems within the party. Because the government cannot intervene.
“The government shouldn’t be allowed, you know, if there are internal people who want to be banned. The parties themselves, which are solid in it, should not break up,” he said.
