TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Presidential Candidate number 02 Prabowo Subianto denied the notion that he was hungry for power.
“I was repeatedly insinuated and ridiculed and accused of various things, they said that I was hungry for power. I asked myself, is it?” he said when giving a speech at KH Abdullah Syafi'ie Haul at As-Syafi'iyah Islamic Boarding School, Pulo Air, Sukabumi, West Java, Sunday, October 7.
According to Prabowo, he was not willing for some people in Jakarta to steal the nation’s wealth.

“The current economic system only enriches some people, it makes Indonesia’s wealth taken out of the country. So a person like me is not favored by the elite,” he said.
Prabowo also said that if the nation’s wealth was taken continuously, one day our country would collapse.
“Every time I am among the people, I always feel the vibration of the soul, passion, and eyesight tells me that there are great hope and trust in me. And I always pray to the Almighty not to disappoint the hope and trust of the people who have given,” Prabowo said.
