“I don’t think there’s a problem with that. Because the message is that he’s negotiating that assertiveness is important,” he said.

“This is normal because she is a woman. Many people think that women are not firm, but Risma is trying to come up with something different,” said Adib.
On the other hand, the Executive Director of the KedaiKopi Survey Institute, Kunto Adi Wibowo, assessed that Risma’s attitude of scolding low-ranking officers did not make the public happy.
“Maybe if Risma is really angry with members of the DPR, the people can be happy, just try Mrs. Risma getting angry,” said Kunto.

Kunto also regretted Risma’s angry attitude. In fact, he only deals with people who are not elite.
“However, is this worth keeping? This is all up to Mrs. Risma, because she is the one who gets angry and she will run out of energy herself. We’re just having fun watching it,” he said.
Not only that, Kunto also considered Risma’s attitude to be an example of a worker for Indonesia who has politeness and manners.
“It will be difficult to save Risma’s attitude. The more angry he gets, the more his face will be tarnished and it’s very likely not to change his behavior. In fact, it will act even more,” he concluded.
