    Police and TNI Forces Ordered to Assure Security

    Tobapos -- President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has instructed the police and military (TNI) forces to assure security and order before and during the July 9 presidential election and transition of national leadership afterward.

    "Before and on July 9 and several days afterward, the police and TNI forces across the country must stand by and be prepared to continue the enforcement of security and order. I do not want to hear reports about lack of preparation and alertness," he said after holding a meeting on politics, security, and law enforcement affairs.

    President Yudhoyono said the police, with the help of TNI, must prevent and act against any violation of laws with regard to the implementation of the election.

    "Any sign of violence, vandalism, or arson by anyone or any quarter must be dealt with. We must be fair and neutral but must not tolerate violations of law," he said.

    He said he did not want conflicts, such as after the 1999 presidential election or regional elections, to happen that could disrupt security and order.

    "Enforce the existing laws firmly without any discrimination. The essence is the state must not allow impunity and prevent people from taking the law into their own hands," he said.

    President Yudhoyono also instructed the police and the TNI to coordinate with election committees at central and regional levels and other parties concerned to assure peaceful election.

    They must also directly monitor the process of voting and days afterward, he said.

    President Yudhoyono meanwhile had ordered the coordinating minister for political, security, and legal affairs, Djoko Suyanto, to lead and directly control all the security operations during the election.

    The limited cabinet meeting was attended by Vice President Boediono, coordinating ministers, home affairs minister, the police chief, the TNI commander, ministers concerned, head of the State Intelligence Agency, and commanders of the defense forces.

    The political situation has heated up as the election is approaching, with all camps intensifying their campaign in their last ditch to win the election.

    In the upcoming election, former military figure Prabowo Subianto, pairing with former chief economic minister of President Yudhoyono's cabinet, will compete against Jakarta Governor Joko Widodo or Jokowi, as he is popularly called, with former vice president Jusuf Kalla as his running mate.

    The Prabowo-Hatta pair is supported by Gerindra, Golkar Party, the ruling Democrat Party, and four Islamic parties - the National Mandate Party (PAN), the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS), the United Development Party (PPP), and the Crescent and Star Party (PBB).

    Prabowo is the chief patron of Gerindra, while Hatta Rajasa is also the general chairman of PAN.

    Meanwhile, the Jokowi-JK pair is supported by five political parties: PDIP, Islamic party the Nation Awakening Party (PKB), the People's Conscience Party (Hanura), the Justice and Indonesian Unity Party (PKPI), and the National Democrat Party (Nasdem).

    Jokowi is a cadre of PDIP, while Jusuf Kalla is a former general chairman of Golkar Party. (ant/adm)
