On Thursday (May 3), while leading her party’s coordination meeting, the Chairwoman of the ruling party PDIP Megawati Soekarnoputri said that she was grateful of the survey results pointing to a PDIP lead. But on that note, she warned her party cadres against being complacent and arrogant. She also asked them to refrain from speaking carelessly in public. “Survey results should not become the (sole) point of reference … today we’re at the top, but unexpected things may happen and then we’re at the bottom,” she said. Megawati is clearly mindful of the dangers of complacency. A wisdom she surely has gained from being in politics for decades.
