TItiek Soeharto: Family Agrees to Support Partai Berkarya

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Siti Hediati Hariadi, also known as Titiek Soeharto, said that children of former Indonesian President Soeharto have agreed to support in growing Partai Berkarya, which was established by Soeharto’s son Hutama Mandala Putra, also known as Tommy Soeharto.

"We, Pak Harto's family, has agreed to help Tommy in making Partai Berkarya bigger," Titieksaid during his visit to the An-Nur Islamic Boarding School in Bantul, Yogyakarta on Wednesday, June 13, 2018.

Tommy Soeharto is currently the Chairman of Partai Berkarya, meanwhile, Titiek has been appointed as the Chief of the party’s Advisory Council following her resignation from the Functional Group Party on Monday, June 11, 2018.

Titiek said that although currently there are only two out of six Soeharto's children are involved in the organizational structure of Partai Berkarya, the others will be providing support from behind the scene.

"Not all [of Soeharto's children] will be in the party’s structure, currently only me and Tommy have joined, but all of Pak Harto’s family provides full support," Titiek said.

Titiek further explained that there are possibilities that her other siblings will join the party. For example, Siti Hediati Rukmana, also known as Mbak Tutut, Soeharto's eldest children is said to join the new party in the near future.

"For the joining declaration [of other Soeharto's family], we have no information, but probably not in the party’s structure, but as supporters," Titiek added.
