Jakarta, IO – Political observer Arif Nurul Imam noted that Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto is getting support from the millennials in 2024 presidential race because he is viewed as someone who is laser-focused on work.

“From the survey conducted by Jakarta Survey Institute (LSJ), the millennial generation are of the view that Prabowo is more focused on work as opposed to other candidates seen as preoccupied with image building,” Arif told Antara on Friday (20/5).
