Jakarta, IO – PDIP cadre Ganjar Pranowo said he would comply with the decisions of PDIP chairwoman Megawati Soekarnoputri on whom the party will nominate to run in the 2024 presidential election. He made the statement when he visited the PDIP party school in Lenteng Agung, South Jakarta, Friday (17/6).
Ganjar also responded to the rumour that he might not be supported by his party even though his electability is almost always in the top three according to many surveys. “According to the resolution of the congress, the decision [on presidential candidacy] is the sole prerogative of the Madam Chair,” he told CNN Indonesia, Saturday (18/6).
When asked about the likelihood of him nominated by NasDem instead, the Central Java Governor said while he would respect the decision, he wanted to reaffirm his stance that he would always follow Megawati’s directives.
Ganjar also said it is still too early to talk about the presidential election. “I am currently tasked with helping the party prepare for the 2024 election stages,” he remarked. (un)
