MEDAN | July 13, 2010 – Weeks after Rahudman declared to be 2010-2015 Medan Mayor following slide victory in the June mayoral election, I  am still unable to post any article for my blog. My instinct seems stuck to find something interesting or unusual in connection with the regional chief election.

Still, KPU need to evaluate the election performance

MEDAN | May 15, 2010 – Despite great number of state budget allocated for the regional head direct election for Medan city, North Sumatera province, however concerns about escalating of blank voters failed to be anticipated.

MEDAN, Mar.19, 2010 – The electoral number draw for candidates who will join the battle in the 2010 regional head election for Medan Mayor has initiated the of politics war instead [what experts usually called as] celebration of democracy. Ridiculous dispute and schoolboy mistake that happen among the authorities has blown up the fog during the regional election ‘Pemilihan Kepala Daerah’ (or called as Pilkada).
