A number of participants were seen wearing the attributes of their respective communities and community organizations.
The collision was led by three Presidiums, including former TNI Commander General Purn Gator Nurmantyo, Chairman of the Muhammadiyah Central Leadership for the period 2005 to 2010 and 2010 to 2015 Din Syamsuddin, and chairman of the Yogyakarta Special Region PWNU from 2011 to 2016 Rochmat Wahab.
In addition, there were nine people appointed as the Executive Committee in the coalition.
After making the declaration, the Chairman of the US Executive Committee, Ahmad Yani, denied that he would engage in practical politics by forming political parties or community organizations.
“This is an agreement from the current declarators who have agreed and signed up to 150, but yesterday afternoon after we printed there were hundreds more who asked to join. Agreed not to form mass organizations and political parties,” said Yani.
He also emphasized that the coalition was formed not as a preparation for the upcoming presidential election in 2024.
“We are not in a practical political context. Practical politics is politics to seize power. WE would like to convey that this condition cannot last long. Until 2024 there will be no efforts to save either from US or from the government, trustees, or community groups like WE, we are very worried that the Indonesian boat will sink before 2024. Therefore, that is our calling. So we are not in a political framework. 2024 is a political framework and activity. We stay away from that political framework and activities, “said Yani.
Yani also denied that the coalition took any opposition to President Joko Widodo’s government.
Even so, he stated that the coalition was a form of moral political aspiration.
