"The US will not support candidates from any political parties, but fully support the democratic presidential election on July 9, 2014," stated Blake after the inauguration of the Waste Water Processing System (IPAL) under a Sanitation Village Master Program in Semanggi, Solo, Central Java, on Tuesday.
Accompanied by Surakarta Mayor F.X. Hadi Rudyatmo, Blake also remarked that the establishment of this communal sanitation center is not intended to support any Indonesian running presidential candidates.
"Yes, the US citizens provided the assistance to the people of Semanggi, so that they can enjoy clean water for a better future," noted Blake.
The communal sanitation building program has been developed in 54 cities in Indonesia and is slated for further development.
The Sanitation Village Master Program will also provide health education to the local residents to ensure optimized management and maintenance of the installed sanitation facilities and clean water connections.(*)
