Golkar Respects Andi Mallarangeng’s Resignation
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:The Golongan Karya (Golkar) Party appreciates the gesture made by former Youth and Sports Minister Andi Mallarangeng who resigned from his post after being named a suspect in the Hambalang project construction scandal. Golkar deputy-chief Agung Laksono said Andi’s action would allow the investigation into the Hambalang sports center scandal to go forward.
“This is a good example. Resignation is advised in certain situations,” said Agung, met after the launching of National System Data Website for Violence Monitoring on Friday, December 7. Agung also said that state officials who are implicated in legal cases should resign to avoid psychological pressure when conducting their work.
Agung personally admitted that he believes Andi is innocent and refused to pass judgment against his former colleague at the cabinet before any court ruling is issued. In addition to appreciating Andi’s gesture, Agung also said he appreciates the quick action taken by the Antigraft Commission (KPK).
“This is the implementation of good governance in Indonesia,” said the Golkar politician who is also the Coordinating Minister for the People’s Welfare.
