Rumors that some politicians were gearing up to replace the Speaker of the House of Representatives (DPR) Ade “Akom” Komaruddin have been making rounds ever since Novanto won the Golkar chairmanship race back in May 2016. So that is not news to us. We were, however, surprised to hear that the proposal is replace Akom with the once ousted speaker Setya Novanto. Novanto has not commented on this matter. In fact, Golkar politician Fayakhun Andriardi gave the assurance that Novanto had never asked for such a thing. But if the rumor is true, that some people are indeed planning to remove Akom and reinstate Novanto as speaker, and that Novanto is behind the idea, we can understand why.To subscribe please click here
