TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Former Chairman of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Abraham Samad said two political parties proposed to him as one of the candidates in the 2019 presidential election.
Despite the reluctance to name the party, he ensures that one party is a supporter of the Jokowi-Jusuf Kalla administration.
"Another party is outside the administration," he said on Saturday in Palembang, April 21.
However, Abraham has not decided much less to declare himself as a presidential candidate and as a vice presidential candidate.
Abraham felt the need to look at the invitation by questioning the prospective voters. He also considered the cost of proposing to the upcoming presidential election.
"I do not have a lot of money, nor a party person."
In Palembang, Abraham became a speaker in a motivational seminar to the civitas academy of Sriwijaya University and Raden Fatah State Islamic University. He wants to instill an attitude to youth with integrity, Pancasila, and character of real Indonesian people.
Palembang is the ninth city of the motivational seminar safari after previously held in Bandung, Makassar, Semarang, Bogor, Bali, Samarinda, Balikpapan, and Yogyakarta.
The safari was conducted in 150 cities themed "Rising Consolidation of Indonesia Youth Generation in Building the Nation."
