InfoSAWIT, JAKARTA - Mansuetus Darto, a smallholders’ coordinator who is also actively supporting Ganjar-Mahfud as President and Vice President Candidate number 3 in the next election, would vote it by politically consideration. He believed the candidate would positively chance palm oil sectors in Indonesia.

In the political aspect, the key factor was that by involving the public in making a policy. Ganjar-Mahfud is known to deliver open public space and skill in making a regulation. The tradition ‘visiting to many places’ showed additional values that confirmed leadership connects to the people in the era of technology and modernization.

Darto also told that it is important to get a leadership that understand low-class economy, particularly the smallholders. This is about to avoid policy that would deliver profits for big groups only. The candidate may have deep understanding to what smallholders need and the policy (to be published) would deliver the positive for low class – people.

The leadership of the candidate showed the vision to develop Badan Usaha Milik Petani (BUMP). What Ganjar did in Central Java, would be taken as concrete thing as the support for people’s business in palm oil sectors. “By focusing on upstream to downstream sector, the candidate is hoped to encourage innovations, reinforce industrial icon in the society level,” he said in press conference of Petani Sawit Rakyat Dukung Ganjar-Mahfud, that InfoSAWIT and Serikat Petani Kelapa Sawit (SPKS) conducted on Thursday (1/2/224) in Jakarta.

Darto also told it needs to develop downstream program in the context of European Union policy about environmental issue. The candidate is hoped to deliver new breakthrough that would deliver advantages for the people in a whole, not only big groups. It needs the clear basic in national scale to maintain the balance between the rich and poor people and this is the priority in the candidate’s perspective.

The candidate also showed the concern about smallholders’ data that should be accurate. He thought the right data would be the key to solve every issue. The candidate would be the power to formulate policy(ies) based on real data not only political rhetoric only.

He also concluded the vote for the candidate would be not only political but also the belief that the two would have the potential to deliver positive chances in palm oil industries. Through inclusive leadership and sustainable vision, it is hoped palm oil community could see the positive progress and escalate every stakeholder’s welfare in this industry. (T2)
