Three blunders by Cak Imin, the Loyalist Version of Gus Dur

Jakarta, CNN Indonesia

Loyalist Gus HardImron Rosyadi Hamid revealed three blunders taken by the General Chairperson of the National Awakening Party (PKB).PKB) Muhaimin Iskandar or Cak Imin in recent times.

Imron considers the three blunders to be a burden for whoever carries Cak Imin in the upcoming 2024 presidential election.

The first blunder, said Imron, was that Cak Imin did not attend the inauguration of the Nahdlatul Ulama (PBNU) Executive Board which was held in East Kalimantan. At that time, Yahya Cholil Staquf became the new General Chair.

“This is the first time in history that the General Chairperson of PKB has not been present at the inauguration ceremony of PBNU, even though PKB has always claimed to be a party that was initiated by NU,” Imron said in a written statement, Tuesday (28/6).

Second, Cak Imin delegitimized the General Chairperson of PBNU Yahya Cholil Staquf. According to Imron, Cak Imin did this through a statement that stated that Yahya Cholil Staquf had no influence at the grassroots.

“This statement will deal with the fact that many government programs that are currently and are being collaborated with PBNU are getting an extraordinary response at the grassroots which is the basis of PKB’s constituents,” he said.

Third, said Imron, Cak Imin sparked a dispute with Zaanuba Arifah Chafsoh alias Yenny Wahid on Twitter. Imron said it was fatal because Yenny was the biological daughter of Gus Dur and the great-grandson of the founder of Nahdlatul Ulama Hadratus Syech Hasyim Asy’ari.

“The family and Dzurriyah Hadratus Syech Hasyim Asy’ari, whoever he is, are highly respected among the PKB constituents,” he said.

PKB’s relationship under the leadership of Cak Imin is known to have strained again with Gus Dur’s family in recent times. Cak Imin and Yenny Wahid had time to insinuate each other on social media.

In his tweet, Cak Imin quipped Yenny not to interfere with the PKB management. Yenny also replied to the innuendo by saying that her party had never taken over another party.

Cak Imin himself was reluctant to respond to Yenny’s question about the struggle for PKB. Cak Imin stated that it was a thing of the past that did not need to be discussed anymore at this time.

“That’s the past, there’s no need to discuss it,” said Cak Imin in a recorded voice received, Saturday (25/6).
