Jakarta – A number of Democratic Party elites (PD) are pushing for an Extraordinary Congress (KLB). KLB was held to improve the organization. This was conveyed by the PD Supreme Council Member, Max Sopacua, in the Declaration of the Moral Rescue Movement for PD (GMPPD) in Jakarta, Thursday (6/13).
“When asked about the issue of the movement (GMPPD), the KLB ends, it could. To revamp the organization, present good HR (human resources). There needs to be a change, “said Max. Also present at the declaration included members of the Board of Trustees PD Ahmad Mubarok and Yusuf Ishak from the PD Supervisory Commission.
According to Max, General Chairperson of PD Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) can hand over the leadership stick to Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono (AHY).
“For KLB, we are not difficult. Mr. SBY just leave it to AHY. There is an AHY that has been installed in front. For KLB, AHY is the basic reference for us to become leaders. We will wait for Mr. SBY’s response. We wait or not, “said Max.
Max said, the GMPPD was formed due to inequality in PD. Some PD elites no longer discuss efforts to raise the party, but rather the issue of presidential and vice presidential candidates 01 and 02.
“We want to save the Democratic Party. If the election is now 7.7 percent and is ranked 7th, we want this party to rise again. Because it was once a ruling party and Pak SBY became president for two periods, “said Max.
Max added, his party was concerned about the internal situation. In addition, he also heard a lot of negative opinions about PD from the public, scholars, and other party politicians.
“The Democratic Party has become a lively conversation, when there are groups of people who want to dissolve the coalition. “This defames the name of the Democratic Party in the mass media and society,” said Max.
