Bakrie: Looks fit to run for president he does!

Business tycoon Aburizal Bakrie, a former Suharto acolyte who bought and bullied his way into the chairmanship of the New Order’s former ruling party Golkar and is linked to numerous scandals and business controversies – including the Lapindo mudflow disaster and the Gayus Tambunan tax affair – has brushing aside dismal electability ratings and opposition from within the ranks of his own party and is set to declare himself a candidate for the 2014 presidential election.
