Jakarta, IO – A. Effendy Choirie, NasDem Party’s campaign manager for Banten-Jakarta, said TNI Commander General Andika Perkasa has been included as the potential presidential candidate to be nominated by the party.

“There are several names that emerged in Jakarta. General Andika, Erick Thohir and Ganjar Pranowo. So there has yet been any dominant name,” he told Detik, Thursday (5/5).

Effendy added that the majority of NasDem cadres in Jakarta and Banten actually proposed Anies because he is deemed influential. However, there were also cadres who proposed Andika Perkasa, Ganjar, and Erick Thohir.
