The statement by Pasirwangi's former chief of police, Garut, of AKP's Sulman Aziz on the conviction to victory of Joko Widodo (Jokowi) -Ma & # 39; ruf Amin has become a controversy. Jokowi also emphasized that TNI and Polri should be neutral in the elections.
Jokowi said he often talked about the neutrality of TNI and Polri in the elections. In fact, he also conveyed this at the TNI-Polri leadership meeting.
"I did not transport him once or twice on the military police team," Jokowi said when he met after the campaign at the Aimas Convention Center in Sorong city, West Papua, Monday (1/4/2019).
He said the policy of TNI and Polri were state policies. While in the polls, TNI and Polri must be able to maintain neutrality.
"At the TNI and Polri meetings, I convey that the TNI and Polri policies are state policies, they should be able to maintain neutrality, of course, I do not think I need to repeat it," Jokowi explained.
Sulman previously held a press conference and claimed to have been invited by Garut Police Chief Budi Satria Wiguna to win the pair of Jokowi-Ma'ruf in the 2019 Presidential Elections. He said that when he was set on fire because he was transferred to the Gakkum Section of the West Java Regional Police Traffic Directorate. He suspected that the mutation was because of his photo with a religious figure who happened to be the nominating committee of candidate 02 Prabowo-Sandi.
"Actually, I said that because I was emotional at the time, I had been transferred from my former position as chief of police," Sulman said.
He said the statement made on Sunday (31/3) was a mistake. Sulman emphasized the institution where he worked neutral.
