Ronald Tanamas, Jakarta – The Star Reform Party (PBR) is now looking and seeking out who is the appropriate presidential candidate for it to support in its coming convention. Up until this time the candidate that is acceptable to the PBR convention is Razil Ramli, but it is not impossible that the target may change to [former Kopassus commander] Prabowo Subianto.

“Our party’s basic mission is the same as Prabowo’s mission. It is quite possible we could support Prabowo as long as he joins and is in accord with the “central axis”, PBR chairperson Bursa Zarnubi told Detik.com on Monday (15/12/2008)

Zarnubi stated that his party is currently in political communication with the Gerindra Party created by Prabowo. According to Zarnubi, the struggle for the aspirations of the poor in the agricultural and fishing sectors is a power of attraction possessed by Prabowo. “I am ready to carry out political communication with Prabowo,” said Zarnubi.
