1NEWS – The Executive Director of the Center for Youth and Population Research (CYPR) Dedek Prayudi responded to a tweet from the former Komnas HAM Commissioner, Natalius Pigai.
According to him, Natalius Pigai’s statement about President Jokowi, Ganjar Pranowo, and the people of Central Java is not correct.
“Racist, if it’s true what is meant is the people of Central Java. Meanwhile, Jokowi and Ganjar, specifically as examples of people from Central Java,” said Dedek to 1NEWS, Monday (4/10).
