Sultan Bantah Minta Perpanjangan Jabatan

Yogyakarta - Gubernur Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta (DIY) Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X membantah pernyataan Mendagri Gamawan Fauzi yang dimuat di media, soal dirinya meminta perpanjangan jabatan gubernur. Sebab masa perpanjangan gubernur yang diberikan Presiden Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono (SBY) sebelumnya akan habis pada tanggal 9 Oktober 2011.

"Itu tidak benar. Saya merasa tidak melakukan hal itu," tegas Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X di Yogyakarta, Selasa (27/9/2011).

Sultan mengatakan, rencananya hari ini Selasa sore, dirinya akan bertemu dengan Presiden SBY. Sultan dipanggil Presiden untuk bertemu di Istana Kepresidenan.

"Presiden yang memanggil saya, namun kenapa itu dianggap meminta perpanjangan," katanya.

Menurut Sultan, secara resmi memang Pemprov DIY pernah mengirim surat yang isinya memberitahukan jabatan Gubernur DIY akan segera berakhir pada tanggal 9 Oktober 2011. Namun dirinya tak pernah mengirim surat untuk meminta perpanjangan.

"Sebagai orang Jawa itu tidak elok meminta perpanjangan seperti itu," katanya.

Oleh karena itu, Sultan meminta agar Mendagri Gamawan Fauzi untuk meluruskan apa yang sebenarnya terjadi. Sebab pernyataan Mendagri tersebut dinilai merendahkan harga diri Sultan. Dia mengkhawatirkan ketika menghadap presiden, akan banyak pihak yang mengira dirinya minta perpanjangan masa jabatan gubernur.

"Saya berharap Mendagri meluruskan soal ini. Kalau tak ada klarifikasi, saya akan mempertimbangkan apakah saya jadi ketemu Presiden Selasa sore ini atau tidak," kata Sultan.(bgs/fay)
