Sultan HB X Believes He has Big Chance to Win Candidacy

Surabaya (ANTARA News) - Yogyakarta governor Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X said here on Wednesday he was optimistic that his decision to run for president in next year`s elections would be supported by all sides.

"The chance is big. It is only PDIP that has already had a candidate while other parties have not," he said at a lecture at state University of Airlangga.

About people who had also aspired to become presidential candidates Sultan said that it was not a problem for him.

"I think it is alright to have a competition. It will be the people or voters that will take the benefit," he said.

He said however that it would all depend upon the votes collected by parties in the legislative elections to be held ahead of the presidential elections.

Asked about the possibility of him being discharged from his post as member of the Golkar Party`s advisory board after declaring his readiness to run for president, he said he saw no party rule that ordered dismissal for party cadre who declared to run for presidency.

Asked about the political means that he would use for running for the presidential post, the Sultan said that it would be determined later after the completion of the legislative elections.

"We have not talked about it. Was the declaration only made yesterday," he said.

He declined to tell about his possible vice presidential candidate.

Before thousands of people the Sultan of the traditional Javanese kingdom declared his readiness to run for president on Tuesday. (*)

let say if Sultan Hamengku Buwono X wins the Indonesian presidential election, would His Majesty change the Indonesian system from republic to Monarch? Just like Malaysia maybe.. As we know, His Majesty is the only traditional ruler (with Paku Buwono in Solo) in Indonesia who have a real power in his own province.. What do you think Mr. Tick? Need to know your opinion.
