Money Politics in Cilacap Bupati Election

Suara Merdeka reports of “money politics” in the Cilacap bupati election campaign.  In total Rp. 214 juta ($21,000) in Rp. 10,000 (~$1) notes were discovered in a car belonging to a campaign member of Novita Wijayanti-Mochamod Muslich.  Novita, who is only 32 years old, is a member of the provincial representative council.  She is backed by PDIP and is the daughter of Fran Lukman (see here), who has been the Head of Cilacap local council for over 10 years.

Sebelumnya diberitakan, warga Dusun Medeng, Desa Bulaksari, Kecamatan Bantarsari menangkap anggota tim sukses pasangan Novita Wijayanti-Mochamad Muslich pada malam menjelang pemungutan suara, Sabtu (8/9).  Mereka ditangkap warga karena diduga hendak menyebar uang. Di dalam mobil Toyota Avanza R-9306-AH yang mereka kendarai terdapat uang pecahan Rp 10.000 dengan total Rp 214,98 juta. Juga ditemukan 340 lembar kertas bergambar Novita-Muslich, 13.710 lembar stiker bertuliskan angka satu, 2.000 lembar gambar Tatto Suwarto Pamuji bersama seorang perempuan, serta 9 bungkus lem dan 4 buah kuas.
