TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Yogyakarta`s Sleman District Court stated that Mahfud MD had just finished dealing with a legal paperwork required for a state official candidacy.
“A Sleman resident of the name Professor Mahfud MD had just submitted a certification for having never been a convict. It was submitted on Wednesday, August 8,” said the Sleman district court spokesman Ali Sobirin today, August 9.
The district court followed-up Mahfud’s request by issuing a letter that clears him of ever being a convict.
“The applicant is then screen checked in the criminal case database that the individual has never been convicted,” said Ali.
Mahfud MD’s certification letter was issued and signed by the head of Sleman district court Erma Suharti. The sole reason driving Mahfud MD to apply for a certification is that he plans on applying as a state official.
Mahfud MD is recently being orbited to be Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo’s running-mate in the 2019 presidential election. The Jokowi political party coalition is currently holding a meeting on Jokowi’s vice presidential candidate that is scheduled to be announced tonight.
