Whoever Wins…..Neo-Liberalism Wins?

Looking at the current trend, the will to strengthen state-owned companies appears to still be weak…I’m quite sure whoever wins the competition would only do less to win our stolen state-owned companies back.

This is the Chairman of Serikat Pekerja PT PLN Ahmad Daryoko, quoted in The Jakarta Post speaking on the debate over neo-liberalism versus a “people’s economy” in the presidential campaign.   The quote certainly strikes a different tone from previous reports of PLN workers, and Ahmad Daryoko in particular, actively supporting Prabowo’s Gerindra Party, whose populist rhetoric has included criticism of privatizing state-owned enterprises.
