Reflection: Makin mendekat Pemilu, makin banyak hal-hal bagus nan manis serta
berguna kita dengar, tetapi setelah pemilu baru kita sadar bahwa yang kita
dengar sebelumnya adalah hanya semprotan hampa belaka.

TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:Vice President Jusuf Kalla has called for the clean
water crisis in Indonesia to be managed properly within five-year period. The
government has targeted 10 million pipe connections to be installed during that
time frame. "This is the government's commitment to the Millennium Development
Goals," said Public Works Minister Djoko Kirmanto following a meeting on clean
water at the vice president's office yesterday.
With the additional 10 million water pipe connections, 90 percent of homes in
big cities will have access to clean water. Kalla has also called for the clean
water supply regulations to be upgraded in the next two months.
