Setya Novanto Responsible for Golkar`s Plummeting Electability

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Pollster Organisasi Kesejahteraan Rakyat (Orkesta) chairman Poempida Hidayatullah said the Functional Group (Golkar) Party’s electability has plummeted to 7.3 percent due to a post-General Election 2014 dualism and Setya Novanto’s corruption case.

“Setya Novanto’s leadership that is tainted by a graft case exposed by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) have a significant impact on Golkar’s current electability,” Poempida said when releasing Orkestra’s survey results in Jakarta on Sunday, December 3.

Previously, Poempida revealed, the party’s electability during the 2014 General Election stood at 14.75 percent.

Orkestra’s survey on Golkar’s electability involved 1,300 respondents across the country. The Great Indonesia Movement (Gerindra Party), on the other hand, has topped the list with a 15.2-pecent electability, followed by the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP) at 12.5 percent, and the Democratic Party at 7.4 percent.

Polcomm Institute Heri Budianto said the survey results served as a warning for Golkar and Setya Novanto.

“It’s time for Setya Novanto to step down,” he suggested.

Heri advised Golkar to hold a national congress soon to replace Setya Novanto and look for young figure to lead Golkar. According to Heri, voters will be dominated by young generations in the upcoming election.
