"Meanwhile, Rafizi is able to play a role in helping the party gain the support of various segments of society and he has also brought a fresh political approach based on formulas and data," he said in his policy speech at the AMK 2021 and 2022 National Congress at the Ideal Convention Centre (IDCC) here today.
