Already the official action of Muhammadiyah in force in the country, on 18 April ago, Muhammadiyah invited all citizens and nations to stand on law and constitution. "We must accept what the KPU decided. For those who are not satisfied, even if there are errors and cheating, bring it to the law so that everything is transparent. Of course, we must guard too." he said.

The election should not make us crack as a nation because unity has been a strength. The contribution of Muslims to this nation was great which made this nation as a nation of Unity in Diversity (Bhineka Tunggal Ika). There was not a Muslim country that tolerates so well. "This means that the Islamic ummah is a buffer for Indonesian unity. So, don't destroy it, "he said.

Since Indonesia amended the 1945 Constitution, there was one verse added which was not in the original 1945 Constitution. It was "Indonesian state law". "To those who were involved in the amendment, please read again. Indonesia is a state of law. That means resolving all problems through the law. Law enforcers must also be fair and uphold the law well, "he said.

When we lead to value politics, said Haedara, we will face pragmatic-opportunistic politics. In other languages which were Jahiliyah politics, or politics of lagging and underdevelopment in value. "We want to invite all Indonesian people and the Islamic ummah to take advantage of this Ramadan momentum to build the best ummah and superior nation," he said.
