“His wife also said to no need to think about it. The process has finished. It was said that there are only four or three differences in the final count for DPD (Regional Leadership Council) and DPRD (Regional House of Representatives), but none actually existed,” said Suko Wahyudi.

Subali’ insecurity and anxiety peaks in the morning when his wife was attending the commemoration of Kartini Day. Subali, who remained inside the house, suddenly grab a machete from his personal collection.

And then stabbed himself twice into his abdomen causing bleeding. Luckily there is a small child that accidentally entered the house and discover the incident and directly shouting for help.
