The 2017 local election in Musi Banyuasin (Muba) is interesting to watch in light of the upcoming 2018 gubernatorial election in the resource-rich province of South Sumatra.  The son of South Sumatra Governor and Golkar politician Alex Noerdin, Dodi Reza Alex Noerdin, and his running mate Beni Hernedi will go head-to-head against independent pair Amirul Arifin and running mate Ahmad Toha in the Muba regency. If Dodi wins Muba’s 2017 election, he would be able to run for South Sumatra’s gubernatorial race in 2018.To subscribe please click here
