Andi Arief Praises Jokowi’s Attitude to SBY, PKS Reminds To Stay Critical


Democratic Party politician Andi Arief said President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and the 6th President of the Republic of Indonesia Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) had the same attitude, namely abandoning the tradition of revenge against the previous leader. PKS appreciates this attitude.

“Leaders are role models. It’s good if fellow leaders take care of each other,” said PKS DPP chairman Mardani Ali Sera to reporters, Tuesday (11/23/2021).

Even so, Mardani reminded Andi Arief to remain critical of the Jokowi government. He wanted Andi to be objective.

“But it is still necessary to remain critical of the President. So that government policies remain on the path to the welfare of the people,” he said.

“Good say good. Less say less,” he added.

“Mr. SBY treated his predecessor very well when he was sick until his death,” said Andi Arief in his tweet on his Twitter account, Tuesday (23/11).

Andi Arief recalled Jokowi’s good treatment when Ani Yudhoyono died. Andi Arief said Jokowi and SBY reflected leaders who abandoned the tradition of revenge.
