The rumor that Heru Budi Hartono had withdrawn from running in Jakarta’s 2017 gubernatorial race as Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama’s running mate continues to spread. Ahok himself has responded to the rumor in a calm manner. He even threw jokes that maybe Heru wanted to resign and make way for Vice Governor Djarot Saiful Hidayat. Some think that Heru’s withdrawal is a part of a scenario for sabotaging Ahok’s gubernatorial bid. But what if it’s a plot twist? What if Heru’s withdrawal is actually a part of scenario of paving the way for Djarot and PDI-P to rejoin Ahok? Once again, anything is possible in politics.To subscribe please click here
