“If the head of the region is indeed, he will actually run the vision of PDIP mission vision as they lead in local government,” Basarah added.
In addition to opening party schools, Megawati will also provide guidance and campaign materials to win elections. “The material on how to win a civilized campaign, which does not justify any means, does not exploit SARA issues,” he said.

“No money politics, no exploitation of SARA issues,” he said.
School party will last for five days opened this afternoon until 1 February.
