JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Deputy Secretary-General (Wasekjen) of the Democratic Party Andi Arief claimed to be ready to fulfill the electoral supervisory body's call to witness in a case of alleged political dowry with a vice-presidential candidate (vice-president) Sandiaga Uno.
"Ready (to be a witness)", Andi said when he contacted Kompas.com, Monday (08/20/2018).
Andi can not confirm, however, whether he can fulfill the call of the Bawaslu today.
Andi admitted that he was still in Bali to attend the wedding of one of the Democratic Party cadres.
He has not read Bawaslu's appeal because it was just received by the DPP of the Democratic Party on Saturday (18-08-2018).

"First I want to read the letter, the principle is that I will always be there for the good," he said.
"If I do not want to politicize," he continued.
