A viral video showed Trade Minister Zulkifli “Zulhas” Hasan distributed affordable cooking oil MinyaKita to residents in Telukbetung Timur, Bandar Lampung, Saturday (9/7). On the occasion, he also asked residents to vote for his daughter, Futri Zulya Savitri, a PAN legislative candidate for Lampung 1 electoral district. Zulhas was criticized because many considered it to be a conflict of interest.
