Political party

From Berita Buana

The Republic of Indonesia is 49 years old and has achieved a lot in its course. The New Order government has achieved its goal and has a lot to offer society. One of the important achievements is in the political life of the nation. The government has succeeded in reducing the number of the political parties to only three.

In this matter there is something I feel concerned about. I am particularly concerned about the other two political parties i.e. United Development Party (PPP) and Indonesian Democratic Party (PDI). Each of these parties are always bickering among party members.

Those who lead the party should have great wisdom and avoid frictions within the party. They should know how to respect each other and appreciate each other's opinions.
