Arzeti inspired by Gus Dur to join PKB
Posted May 4, 2013on:
Model Arzeti Bilbina says the late president Abdurrahman “Gus Dur” Wahid inspired her to jump into politics.
“I decided to join The National Awakening Party [PKB] because the party’s founder, Gus Dur, was my role model. From him, I learned about democracy and pluralism,” she said.
Arzeti said it was not an easy decision to choose a party.
“Before I joined the PKB, there were several parties that asked me to join them, but I was not ready. In addition, the PKB has given me room to keep doing what I am doing now,” she said.
Arzeti said she had made some preparations, including gaining political knowledge, before joining the party.
