Jakarta, IO – Head of PDI-P central executive board Eriko Sotarduga revealed the names of three cadres who are considered to have met the party’s criteria to run in the upcoming 2024 presidential election, namely House Speaker Puan Maharani, Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo, and Social Affairs Minister Tri Rismaharini.

Eriko however emphasized that his party chose not to rush in the nomination of presidential candidate. According to him, PDI-P is of the view that it is too early to announce the names, so they have chosen to follow the standard operating procedures.

He also said that PDIP would try to nominate its own cadres, instead of cadres from other parties. This was in response to public criticism that many political parties in Indonesia were unable to prepare their own cadres to become regional and national leaders.
