TRIBUNNEWS.COM, JAKARTA – Ekonom yang juga mantan calon Gubernur DKI Jakarta dari jalur independen, Faisal Basri, menilai saat ini terjadi perlawanan pada sistem oligarki yang biasa terdapat dalam sebuah parpol.

Faisal menjelaskan perlawanan tersebut terlihat dari tak ada satu pun Ketua Umum parpol yang suaranya tinggi dalam setiap rilis lembaga survei jelang pemilu 2014.

“Tak ada satu pun Ketua Umum partai suaranya tinggi. Satu digit semua. Misalnya ARB (Aburizal Bakrie), itu kecil,” ujar Faisal di hotel Four Season, Kamis (13/3/2014).

Menurutnya saat ini partai tak bisa lagi dijadikan instrumen untuk mengukur kepemimpinan nasional. Faisal juga berpendapat parpol kurang bisa menghasilkan sosok pemimpin nasional sehingga menyelenggarakan konvensi.

“Demokrat lakukan konvensi, yang ikut lebih banyak yang bukan kader Demokrat. Ini kurang kemampuan menghasilkan pimpinan nasional,” jelasnya.

“Jadi perubahan itu luar biasa. Sudah built in di masyarakat. Itu harus diikuti oleh siapa pun yang memegang jabatan politik,” tukasnya.
