The Great Indonesia Movement (Gerakan Indonesia Raya – “Gerindra”) Party has announced its organizational structure for 2020-2025. This latest organization is the result of Gerindra’s Extraordinary Congress on 8 August 2020. The decision of the Extraordinary Congress has been validated by Minister of Law and Human Rights Yasonna Laoly. “Gerindra Party’s organization includes the Governing Council (89 members), Advisory Council (48 members), Experts’ Council (43 members), and the Executive Management of the Party’s Central Leadership Council (Dewan Pimpinan Pusat – “DPP”) (292 members),” said Gerindra Party’s General Secretary Ahmad Muzani in a Gerindra TV YouTube broadcast on Saturday (19/09/2020). 

In the new Party organization, Prabowo Subianto is again appointed as General Chairman, doubling as the Chairman of the Governing Council. Therefore, he is responsible for organizing the Party’s various developments, in order to enable it to respond to all political development. He is also granted full mandate to make any necessary decisions, including nominating the Presidential Candidate, Vice Presidential Candidate, and Minister Candidates to be submitted by Gerindra Party, as well as the nominating Governor and Vice Governor Candidates, Regent and Vice Regent Candidates, and Mayors and Vice Mayor Candidates from the Party. “Internally, the General Chairman and Chairman of the Governing Council is given the mandate to nominate Member Candidates of the House of Representatives of RI, Member Candidates of the Provincial Houses of Representatives, Member Candidates of Regency and Municipal Houses of Representatives, as well as Chairmen Candidates of Regional Leadership Councils and Branch Leadership Council Candidates. He is also responsible for other internal decisions and policies,” Murzani said. 

In exercising his duties, Prabowo is assisted by 12 Vice General Chairmen. He has further appointed Sufmi Dasco Ahmad as Executive Director and Sugiono as Vice Executive Director of the DPP. He has also organized the Honor Council of Gerindra Party, comprised of a Directing Council and Executive Council. The Directing Council is chaired by Air Commodore (Ret.) Mutanto Juwono, while the Executive Council is chaired by Habiburokhman. “On 7 September, the task entrusted to Prabowo Subianto by the Congress (i.e. to determine the Party’s new organization) was completed, and the document was then submitted to the Ministry of Law and Human Rights. In accordance with the provisions of Law Number 2 of 2008 concerning Political Parties, the organization of a Party is valid when so validated by the Ministry of Law and Human Rights,” Muzani said. “I confirm that the organization of Gerindra Party for 2020-2025 is validated by the Ministry of Law and Human Rights, with the issuance of the Decree of the Ministry of Law and Human Rights Number N.MH-18.HH.11.01/2020 concerning the Validation of Changes to the Articles of Association and Memorandum of Association of Gerindra Party.” (dan)
