2024 Presidential Candidate Doesn’t Have To Be Me, Anyone

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – General Chairperson of the Greater Indonesia Movement Party, Prabowo Subianto, opened up about the criteria for presidential candidates who will compete in the upcoming 2024 Presidential and Vice Presidential Elections.

Speaking after meeting with the chairman of the National Democratic Party Surya Paloh and his staff at the NasDem Tower, Jakarta, Prabowo said that his version of the criteria for presidential candidates was an Indonesian citizen, physically and mentally healthy, and so on. Prabowo’s words were immediately greeted by laughter from the Gerindra and NasDem elites who were also present at the press conference session.

“But the point is, I think, we must have someone who is truly committed and loyal to Pancasila, the 1945 Constitution, completely, not as a mantra, but in its entirety. I think that is the most important criterion,” Prabowo said.

“And also if you have experience,” Prabowo said, then spoke with the NasDem elite and Gerindra behind him, which was greeted with laughter.

Prabowo was then asked again whether the criteria he said meant that the presidential candidate no longer had to be Prabowo. What is Prabowo’s answer?

“No, you don’t have to. It doesn’t have to be Prabowo, anyone, during this republic. So this is it, I’m learning from history, from a good republic it is the obligation of every citizen who is physically, intellectually, physically and economically capable of himself and his family obliged to offer himself to the state and nation, so it is mandatory,” said Prabowo.

Prabowo held a meeting with Surya on Pancasila’s Birthday, which is commemorated on June 1, 2022. Prabowo arrived at 11:50 WIB and was greeted by NasDem DPP Chairman Willy Aditya and NasDem Deputy Secretary General Hermawi Taslim.

Prabowo, who was present wearing batik-style clothes, then explained his arrival to the NasDem Tower to stay in touch and have lunch together.

“There is no special agenda. My friends invited me, so I came. Yes, I had lunch (together),” Prabowo said.

Quoting the official NasDem website, Prabowo and Surya’s meeting was warm and full of kinship. Prabowo was immediately received by Surya in his office.

Surya was accompanied by a number of NasDem elites such as Siswono Yudo Husodo, Enggartiasto Lukita, Jan Darmadi and Ahmad Sahroni. Meanwhile, from the Gerindra Party, members of the DPP board such as Ahmad Muzani, Budi Djiwandono, Sufmi Dasco and Sugiyono were also present.
