Latest on President Election   Leave a comment

Such a relieve with the result of Indonesia Presidential election. Virtually, nothing bad happen to the counting process. A comment need to be pointed out. I recall in one TV show presenting an long, biting argumentation between Indonesia Survey Institute (LSI) and Indonesia Research Institute (LRI). Central point of the debate talked over whether 2009 presidential election would end in roundoff. I remembered LRI’s Johan Silalahi even proclaimed that LRI dared to dissolve. Well, I wonder what Johan would do now, after the current votes counting 😉

Asylum becomes the favorite..   Leave a comment

As expected, Indonesia’s 2009 Parliament general election has harvested the side effect… Many of candidates are experiencing mental problems and are needing special treatment in asylum. What can I say? this is the logical consequence for not being able to take the loss. In some part of the country region, I see from news, one unsuccessful candidate is in conflict with his people whom he wish to vote for him. He force the villagers to get out of his land property. Quite unreasonable…I guess series of this psychological effect keep increasing at least until the Presidential election ends.

General Election 09   Leave a comment

Countdown to the Indonesia president and parliament election is getting closer, less than a month to go. As opposed to the the last general election, recent system offers a different approach. It’s virtually different indeed.
In last election, people votes primarily for political party. Then the most voted parties will determine candidate for people to sit in the parliament and the candidate for president too. In other words, we were like buying cat in the sack, cause our president was not chosen by the people.
I see current election mechanism is very different. Recent representative candidates must now anticipate for extra money, one for campaigning themselves and one for contributing his/her political party. No wonder many health authorities are preparing extra services and spaces related to mental hospitals. With limited hot seat targeted as opposed to huge number of candidates, added with high tension seasoning, there will be high probability that part of these people will enter the services…scarry….

Palestine..all my best wishes   Leave a comment

Conflict over Israel attack on Palestine area becomes more intense. According to TV news couple hours ago, major war between Israel and Palestine has occurred for about three times. Since 1946, the UK backed newly emerged Israeli state, gradually took over Palestinian’s land through war, harsh and occupation. From the map, it can be seen that the Palestine land is shrinking time to time. Big question is, how’s on earth the so called peacemaker UN can foolishly award the land to the Jewish without considering the history and the fact that the land was not even Jewish de facto area?
The situation became more frustrating since Arabian league is never able to unite their view to support the Palestine. I wonder what happened with the heart and brain of those leaders? I certainly don’t have the right to judge them, but it’s just too obvious, that both Arabian League and international community lead by UN doesn’t have true willingness to fix the thing. Let’s hope the situation turns for Palestinian people good. I believe that Allah will help on those who fight for Him, be it now or then.
