Political ambivalence is the two contradictory logical reasons – activists and politicians thought – whic has been exploited by the political elite to win the election contestation. The book describes how the elite manage two thought to affect rural and cities communities simultaneously. Elite cultivates social and offer a common enemy issue to create a sense of us (kita).
