Mulan became a DPR member under Regulation no. 1341 / PL.01.9-Kpt / 06 / KPU / IX / 2019 of 16 September 2019 on amendments to the KPU Decision No. 1318 / PL.01.9-Kpt / 06 / KPU / VIII / 2019 concerning the determination of the elected candidates for DPR members in the 2019 elections.

Harry questioned Gerindr's DPP policy that removed Ervin, in addition without causing the mistake or violation that caused Ervin Lutfi to be dismissed as the chosen candidate.
Ervin's character, he said, is a youth character, businessman and activist from Garut who managed to win the most votes in the April 17, 2019 legislative election.
