Amien-Siswono told not to misuse sermons

PADANG, West Sumatra: A member of the West Sumatra General Elections Commission (KPU) called on Amien Rais and Siswono Yudohusodo not to slip campaign messages into their speech during Friday prayers in the province.

Amien is scheduled to lead locals in Friday prayers at a Padang Panjang mosque in the province, while Siswono is scheduled to deliver a sermon at another mosque in Bukittinggi.

KPU West Sumatra member Ardyan said the occasions were not included in Amien and Siswono's campaign schedule. -- Antara
