IO, Jakarta – Vice-Presidential Candidate Number 02 Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno is rarely seen together with Presidential Candidate Prabowo Subianto. However, their hearts unite in their fight for the welfare, justice, and prosperity of our people. When Prabowo is busy consolidating with supporting party coalition, public figures, and the ulema, Sandi performed his guerrilla by greeting the people in the regions.
Sandi, who reflects the millennial spirit in our domestic political forum, is Prabowo’s backbone in disseminating the vision and mission of “Indonesia Wins” to people the all regions. After the elections, Sandi travelled again to greet volunteers, supporters, sympathizers, and the public, as well as attending various entrepreneurship training events. In every opportunity, Sandi never forgets to express his gratitude for the support from the people in the regions that he visits to Prabowo-Sandi as the elected President and Vice President according to the count made by the National Committee to Elect Prabowo-Sandi (Badan Pemenangan Nasional – “BPN”) with a vote of 62%.
Sandi’s appearance after his illness during the voting day also reiterates that he remains faithful in his support of Prabowo Subianto’s fight for the people’s votes that certain parties want to steal. At Prabowo-Sandi Media Center, he denied any distancing of his relations with Prabowo. He was also present at Sahid Jaya Hotel with Prabowo to expose facts about frauds in the 2019 Presidential Elections on Tuesday (14/05/2019). This further shows that he would be by Prabowo’s side, fighting together for the people’s voices.
There are many reasons why he would continue to fight for the people, among others the inspiration given to him by Mrs. Minurlin, the wife of former Commander General of the Special Forces Agus Sutomo. She ensured that her sovereignty is not robbed by guarding ballot boxes all through the night, to make sure that they are not moved without permission from electoral officials. “This is why we cannot underestimate the power of mommies. It is these mommies who are honest, who speak candidly, and who fight according to their conscience. Thank you, Mrs. Minurlin. For us, you are a true hero of democracy,” Sandi said.
Sandi further stated that there are so many things to note in the 2019 Elections – starting from suspicious data, money politics, electoral injustice, various electoral frauds, to the death of more than 600 electoral officials and the hospitalization of 3000 other people. This is an expensive lesson that must serve for direction for better elections in the future. “Yet, despite all the challenges, I, Pak Prabowo Subianto, and the Indonesian people will never be tired of fighting to enforce truth and justice. I am asking all of you my brothers and sisters to continue to fight until the last drop of your blood, to maintain the sovereignty of the people,” he stated with the takbir.
Sandi also accompanied Prabowo in the press conference held in response to the announcement of the Election Commission (Komisi Pemilihan Umum – “KPU”)’s announcement, which was made in early morning on Tuesday (21/05/2019) at 01.46 WIB. Sandi stated that the struggle is not over yet. “The struggle is not over yet. I shall always fight alongside Pak Prabowo Subianto to the last drop of my blood for the maturity of democracy in this country, and for the establishment of a fair and honest democratic system,” he stated on his Facebook fanpage @SandiagaSUno
Sandi reiterates that his decision to take part in the political contest with Prabowo Subianto is not to seek power. “There is no intention whatsoever from us to turn this political contest into a search for power, because power only belongs to Allah. We are here to fight for the Indonesian people’s great hope, i.e. for a better economy and for a government that supports its own people,” he said.
He also stated that change should not be considered a threat. Criticizing something for the better should not be considered as a conspiracy. Advanced nations always give space for difference of opinion, innovations, and criticism. “In the future, we will prioritize democracy with collaboration, because these young people are much more mature, they can manage the difference of opinion into something collaborative,” he said.
