Ridwan Kamil, the New Star of the Golkar Party
Golkar Party chairperson Airlangga Hartarto has appointed West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil as the party's new deputy chairman. "He has participated in several general elections, therefore he has adequate political experience," Airlangga said on Wednesday while assuring that Golkar officials had agreed upon Ridwan Kamil's appointment. "The Golkar Party needs a team that can play total football, that can work together to win the general election," he said.
Meanwhile, Ridwan Kamil revealed that he felt compatible with the Golkar's spirit. He also claimed to have never demanded any position before joining Golkar. "I'm not asking for it. It's up to Mr. Airlangga to place me as the deputy chairman for voter consolidation and co-chair of the Election Winning Body," he said.
