VIVA – The insinuation of the Minister of Finance Sri Mulyani Indrawati to Zulkifli Hasan about the debts of RI that are being discussed. Sri Mulyani's statement also spoke about the Democratic elite because Zulkifli was Minister when Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) era.
"What Zulkifli conveys, Sri Mulyani can not compare by comparing the figures." That is not smart, because the figures from the state budget for 2009 in 2014 are very different, "said Democrat Legal Aid and Advocacy Division Head Ferdinand Hutahahean told reporters at the end of Tuesday, August 21, 2018.
According to Ferdinand, the government budget for 2009 reached approximately R 1,031 trillion. This figure can not be compared with the current state budget that has doubled or around Rp. 2000 trillion.
"So the comparison is not smart when it comes to comparing the amount of health funds and other items that will definitely be bigger now because of the increase in the state budget," he said.
He also did not accept Sri Mulyani's statement about the debt of the past that was considered unfair. He joked about Sri's remarks to impress on past debts, including the SBY era, which were already very large and exaggerated.
"It is as if the debt of the past has been very great and about dosing. "Just talk about the debts that are reckless and even exceed the 10-year debt of SBY," he said.

He then interviewed Sri Mulyani's performance as Minister of Finance to the coordinating Minister of Economic Affairs. "Sri Mulyani is the minister of finance at the time, do not blame the past unless Sri Mulani wants to spit on her own face," he said.
Ferdinand asked Sri Mulyani to be wise in making a statement to avoid polemics. Especially if there is currently a wrong policy but it has been thrown in the past, it is considered not to be beautiful.
"So no need attacking attacks "In the past, he just popped up and fell on his own face," Ferdinand said.

Earlier, the chairman of the People & # 39; s Consultative Assembly (MPR), who was also the general chairman of the PAN Zulkifli Hasan in a state statement, blamed the Republic of Indonesia for their debt. Zulkifli's criticism continued with the answer to the sarcasm of Sri Mulyani.
Sri regards Zulkifli's criticism of the payment of the principal amount of public debt in 2018 of Rp.400 trillion not reasonable, or deviant and politically charged.
"Debt payments today are obligations that must be met with debts from the past, why is this just a fuss?" Sri Mulyani said. (Ase)
