I respect the leaders of the Political Parties present here, Mrs. PDIP General Chairperson (Ketum) Megawati Soekarnoputri, Acting PPP Chairperson Mardiono, Hanura Chairperson Oesman Sapta Odang, and Perindo Chairperson Hary Tanoesoedibjo.
I am with Mr. Mahfud and we and our wives are present here with the supporting party to submit documents. And ladies and gentlemen, the KPU commissioners have received the complete information, hopefully this will be the start of legality being fulfilled.
And God willing, Mr. Mahfud and Mr. Mahfud, through the vision and mission of the program prepared, will quickly bring Indonesia forward to become even more agile.
And of course we ask for support, encouragement from the community and hopefully the KPU will become a referee who, God willing, will be the most neutral, able to provide the best service for the progress of the nation and state.
