"The resignation letter has been received by the KPK leadership some time ago," said KPK deputy chief Laode M. Syarif in Jakarta on Friday.

Bima Arya is a young politician from the National Mandate Party (PAN). He is the most likeable candidate in the Bogor mayoral race.

"He has picked his running mate according to his preferred criteria," PAN secretary general Eddy Soeparno told the media.
