Chairman of the House of Representatives Commission VIII, Abdul Kadir Karding said, an assessment of Indonesia- Australia Student Association ( PPIA ) to commission a working visit to Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra are too tendentious and not proportional. According to him, this has to do with the fact that one high-ranking person PPIA is a certain political party cadres.
" After we learned, there is one party cadres who play there using the PPIA, " said Karding to Kompas.com on Thursday ( 05/05/2011 ).
However, Karding insisted declined to name the party that moves behind the PPIA. According to him, not ethical otherwise noted. PKB politicians assert that the House is only open to criticism and input from the community. However, the assessment should also be proportionate.
According to the news that circulated among journalists, one of the administrators PPIA are close to Gerindra Party. Chairman of DPP Gerindra Party Edhy Prabowo not dismiss that parents are one of the main board PPIA is one of the administrators in the DPP Gerindra. However, Edhy denied that Gerindra playing behind him.
" Not true. It is true that one of the participants are Indonesian citizens who happened to her mother is an executive board. We do not know anything about the allegations. We reject the assertion that there Gerindra behind it, " he said to Kompas.com when confirmed.
Edhy argue that because the Gerindra is not the type of party who likes to speak ill of another person or party. Faction Secretary of Gerindra in Parliament also asserted, indeed Gerindra Party issued a directive that all its cadres in the House of Representatives may not participate in a working visit abroad. However, he added, Gerindra would not use the silly ways to speak ill of others.
