The public is also asked to jointly offer prayers for the success of the 2024 elections.
“The ongoing 2024 election stages are quite good and have integrity, because they can also provide understanding to the public to choose candidates based on vision, ideas, talent and good sense. “This is important so that the leaders who are elected are truly based on the results of their thoughts, not just following other people’s wishes,” said Rev. Albert in an interview on MNC Trijaya Radio’s Evening Hot Topic, Wednesday (17/1).
Rev. Albert also emphasized that holding peaceful elections based on the principles of Direct, General, Free, Secret, Honest and Fair [Luber Jurdil] is very important because it concerns the authority of the Indonesian nation.

Apart from that, Rev. Albert also highlighted that the safe and peaceful 2024 elections also have an impact on sustainable development, where whoever wins in this contest must be able to continue development as a whole, so that the Indonesian nation’s journey to become a developed country can continue well together with the nation’s children. who continue to serve.
Rev. Albert also invited all elements of Indonesian society to respect the series and stages of the elections which had gone well.

Don’t abstain. “All people must exercise their right to vote so that the Indonesian nation can progress,” concluded Rev. Albert.
