The Golkar Party, the second largest political party in the country, has officially nominated Bambang Soesatyo (Bamsoet) to become speaker of the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR). Golkar previously nominated Aziz Syamsuddin as deputy speaker of the House of Representatives (DPR), and Aziz was sworn in last night (Oct. 1). Is this a deal in exchange for lending Airlangga their support in Golkar’s upcoming chairmanship congress (Munas)?
