BANDUNG, NETRALNEWS.COM - Golkar Party politician Nurul Arifin wants to follow the paths of the Surabaya Mayor Tri Rismaharini and Tangerang Mayor Airin Rachmi Diany who successfully built their city if she was elected Mayor of Bandung in 2018 Regional Head Elections (Pilkada).
"I want to prove if given the trust [as the mayor of Bandung] like Ms. Risma in Surabaya, Ms. Airin [Airin Rachmi Diany] in Banten. Many good things can be done by female leaders," said Nurul Arifin in Bandung, Saturday (7/1/2017).
Nurul was asked by the Golkar central board to participate in the market of Mayor candidates for Bandung of the period 2018-2023 which will be carried by the Golkar Party. The woman born in Bandung July 18, 1966 admitted to be challenged to be able to continue the development of West Java capital.
"Maybe the central board wants to give a chance to prove as a leader in a city. In parliament [I] can work but to lead in one city proves our expertise to build the city and this is my chance. I am honored," she said.
According to Nurul, if later she was trusted to carry out the mandate as a leader of Bandung, Nurul is committed to complete what Ridwan Kamil has left.
She added what will be the priority if she was elected are the equity of development and economy in the suburbs.
She pointed out the main focus is to solve problems in Cicadas which until now becomes a scourge for previous leaders.
"I want to build [my] birthplace Cicadas, that's a challenge for me," she concluded. (*)
