    Intellasia East Asia News – 150 prominent national figures form coalition to ‘save Indonesia’

    As many as 150 national figures have reportedly agreed to form the Save Indonesia Coalition (KAMI), a movement that aims to prevent any deviations from Indonesia’s founding principles, former Muhammadiyah chair and the coalition’s cofounder Din Syamsudin said.

    The public figures include prominent government critics such as Rachmawati Soekarnoputri the daughter of Indonesia’s first president Soekarno former coordinating maritime affairs minister Risal Ramli, former Indonesian Military (TNI) commander Gen. (ret.) Gatot Nurmantyo and Islam Defenders Front (FPI) chair Sobri Lubis.

    Din said the coalition would be officially declared at the Proclamation Monument in Central Jakarta at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, a day after the country’s Independence Day.

    “[The formation of] KAMI will be declared to coincide with the commemoration of Indonesia’s 75th Independence Day and the commemoration of when Pancasila was introduced as our national ideology,” he said on Saturday as quoted by tempo.co.

    He said KAMI was formed because its founders all felt the country had strayed from its founding principles and that political parties and the House of Representatives had failed to uphold the will of the people.

    “That is why we all decided to step in and voice our opinions and our thoughts,” he said.
