Like a pendulum, political support from Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) is leaning toward President Joko Widodo (Jokowi). The Chair of the Democratic Party has signalled that he is ready to support the president in the 2019 presidential election (Pilpres), under certain conditions. At the same time, he is also conducting a guerrilla campaign to build a new axis for his son, Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono (AHY), to participate in the political contest.
In the Democratic Party’s national leadership meeting (Rapimnas) at Sentul International Convention Centre, Bogor, Saturday (10/3), SBY’s statement was like a breath of fresh air. In the presence of President Joko, he said: “If God predestines, the Democratic Party could fight alongside President Joko Widodo.”
