Jusuf Kalla vote for KOMODO


Former Indonesian Vice President Jusuf Kalla and a group of more than 70 businessmen, public figures and journalists are visiting Komodo Island today to support its candidacy in the New7Wonders of Nature.

“If Komodo Island becomes a New Seven Wonder, it will be a great boost for the island and will improve the welfare of local people,” Kalla, who has recently been appointed an ambassador for the island, told The Jakarta Post . “More and more tourists will visit the island and it will show a good image of Indonesia.” Jusuf Kalla believes that the New7Wonders of Nature campaign is bringing “substantial benefits to the nation and lift the name of the Indonesian people.” Increasing the popularity of Komodo can only have positive impact on tourism and economy of Indonesia, especially East Nusa Tenggara, he says, adding: “And most importantly this is a good moment to bring together the spirit of the Indonesian people to victory with by sealing the wonder island of Komodo in the international community as one of the New7 Wonders of the Nature.”

Indonesians simply need to type KOMODO and send it to 9818 via Telkomsel, XL and Indosat to cast their vote. The Komodo dragon, Varanus komodoensis , is found in the Indonesian islands of Komodo, Rinca, Flores, Gili Motang and Gili Dasami. A member of the monitor lizard family (Varanidae), it is the largest living species of lizard, growing to a maximum of length three metres
and weighing up to around 70 kilograms.

Ayo dukung komodo menjadi salah satu dari tujuh keajaiban dunia alam. Pak JK saja mendukung, demi kemajuan ekonomi dan pariwisata indonesia.

  1. Okay so for my final in office applications I need to complete an excel spreadsheet that has something to do with the topic, 7 new wonders of the world. I decided to do the popularity of each wonder but I’m having a bit of trouble finding anything. Would someone be able to help me? Thanks so much
    I already know what the 7 new wonders are so help needed there ( although i do thank you all for the help). I would like to know where i can find the information about how popular they are for my excel spreadsheet.

  2. I applaud the initiative of voting for the New 7 Wonders of the World.

    After all, many glamorous new heritage sites have emerged in the last 2000 years, and just one subsists from the ancient 7 wonders of the world.

    However, I just criticize the votation criteria.

    From what I’ve heard, people could vote for free on the Internet, and buy votes, under a fee.

    So, does this mean, that anyone could vote as many times as they wished?

  3. Very efficiently written information. It will be beneficial to anybody who employess it, including me. Keep up the good work – for sure i will check out more posts.
