Vice-President Megawati Sukarnoputri will allow her Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P), the largest in Parliament, to back a second memorandum of censure against President Abdurrahman Wahid next week, an opposition leader said. Yusril Ihza Mahendra, head of the Crescent Star Party (PBB), said: 'We were discussing PBB's support for the second memorandum, and when I asked about PDI-P's stance, Ibu [Mrs] Megawati said, 'It will be like that too'.' According to Mr Yusril, Mrs Megawati added: 'There is a lot of pressure from [members of her] party to [support the censure] and things are difficult to handle.' His comments are indicative of the heightened tension and anticipation ahead of the crucial parliamentary session next Monday, when lawmakers could issue a second censure of Mr Wahid for alleged corruption and incompetence - triggering a full session of the more powerful Peoples' Consultative Assembly to vote Mr Wahid from office. But Mrs Megawati is not expected to issue final instructions to her party before a special meeting at its Jakarta headquarters on Sunday. One of the reasons for her hesitancy in making her views known is the leading role in Parliament played by men such as Mr Mahendra. Mrs Megawati is said to have laid down three conditions under which she would consider taking Mr Wahid's job, the key one being her refusal to appoint a vice-president. But Mr Mahendra's party and others, such as the National Mandate Party want Mrs Megawati to reward them for their role in toppling Mr Wahid by making Mr Mahendra her vice-president. Mrs Megawati generally refrains from direct statements. She has not made clear whether she wants to support Mr Wahid as the constitutionally elected leader or to help depose him and take his job. But recent signs indicate that if the constitutional process is followed, as in the Parliament's censure procedures, she could not save Mr Wahid. Last week, her staff again clarified that she does not support Mr Wahid personally, but only in his capacity as President. She has hesitated to openly grasp the mantle of power because she fears that those in Parliament working against Mr Wahid would soon regroup to attack her. 'All have pinned their hopes on Mrs Mega, not only the President. I think the people also have high hopes because it has to be admitted that nowadays Mrs Mega has the most decisive role, Defence Minister Mahfud Mahmoddin said yesterday. Mr Wahid has promised a televised address on Friday. Mr Yusril, who was sacked as minister of justice and human rights by Mr Wahid, said he met Mrs Megawati to propose a meeting between party leaders to discuss the future of the country after the second censure. The House of Representatives issued its first memorandum against Mr Wahid on February 1. House Speaker Akbar Tandjung, chairman of the Golkar Party, has said that the only opposition likely in Parliament to a second censure would come from Mr Wahid's small National Awakening Party. But until the results of Monday's session are in, no predictions can be made, least of all about Mrs Megawati's state of mind.
