According to him, police will reward an Rp1 million prize money for those who are courageous enough to report on money politics taking place during Election Day on April 17, complete with evidence.
“How about the legislative candidates that are on a tight budget? They would certainly lose [if rivals use bribe money]. This is why money politics must be fought against for the sake of fair democracy,” he maintained.
