REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- Ulemas in an Ijtima II meeting in Jakarta on Sunday expressed support for presidential contender Prabowo Subianto and his running mate, Sandiaga Uno for the next year's election. The Ulemas Ijtima II lent its support after Prabowo who is a former commandant of the Army's elite strike force Kapassus, signed an integrity pact made by the Ulemas.

Prabowo who arrived at the meeting about 1 p.m. was not accompanied by Sandiaga. He signed the pact at about 2.30 p.m.

The Ulemas Ijtima II forum, according to Habib Rizieq Shihab who delivered a message in screen played during the meeting, has three main agenda. First was to hear the explanations of Prabowo on his decision to pick up Sandiaga Uno as his running mate, instead of Muslim scholar ustaz Abdul Somad or Salim Segar Al Jufri as recommended by the Ulemas Ijtima I meeting. This was intended to prevent frictions and suspicions among ulemas and the Muslim community.
