Mufidah Kalla & Uga Wiranto are hot stuff in the battle for Muslim votes, while Mrs Ani is urged to cover up.
Deputy secretary of the Justice Party (Partai Keadilan Sejahtera, PKS), Zulkieflimansyah, says that a portion of the Party's support base may flock to the pairing of Jusuf Kalla and retired General Wiranto (JK-Win) at the July 8th presidential election, because both men's wives dress simply and wear the jilbab, or Islamic headscarf. jawapos
To be frank, in their hearts some PKS people find Jusuf Kalla-Wiranto more appealing because of their wives.
Mufidah Jusuf Kalla and Rugaya (Uga) Wiranto, and their husbands.
Separately on the same issue Mahfud Sidik, the PKS parliamentary chairman, recommended that Ani Yudhoyono and Herawati Boediono don the jilbab, in order to increase the appeal of their husbands among Muslim voters, and in particular to solidify Party rank and file support for the pairing.
The appearance of JK and Wiranto's wife is really good. The PKS can only advise Mrs Ani and Boediono's wife to wear Muslim clothes.

Meanwhile, campaigning in Pekanbaru, Riau, Wiranto himself made use of the fact that his wife covered up modestly:

They've worn Islamic dress for a long time.
