JAKARTA, GRES.NEWS – The young generation of the Golkar Party (Party of the Functional Groups) demands a plenary meeting to take down Setya Novanto as chairman.

Golkar Party Youg Generation (GMPG) chairman, Ahmad Doli Kurnia, said the party’s electability is dropping because of Setya Novanto.

"If the central executive board is serious to improve the party’s electability. They must use their authority that is guaranteed by the party’s statutes and bylaws to organize a plenary meeting to replace Setya Novanto," he said, Jakarta, Saturday (30/9).

Doli said the central executive board has held meetings with three survey institutions and the conclusion was that Golkar Party’s electability has slumped.
