The check-shirt challenger to Jakarta Governor Fauzi Bowo, Jokowi, must have been thrilled to hear that the unspeakable Minister of Religious Affairs, Suryadharma Ali. has decided to lend the magic of his name, and that of his his PPP party, to Bowo’s bid for re-election!

  • The Jakarta Globe 20/7 reported that Suryadhama explained that his party would endorse Fauzi despite an awareness of “flaws he might have had” during his term in office; he expressed his hope that these would be eliminated if Fauzi were re-elected.

Given Ali’s awful record as one of SBY’s most intolerant Ministers, this should give the Joko/Ahok team a big boost.

But Fauzi will no doubt be content to get Ali’s endorsement. He isn’t too fussy about the company he keeps, as the infamous photo of the Gov enjoying the hospitality of the IslamoNazi FPI confirms.
