IO – General Secretary of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (Partai Demokrasi Indonesia Perjuangan – “PDIP”)’s Central Leadership Council (Dewan Pimpinan Pusat – “DPP”) Hasto Kristiyanto has stated in response to the results of various surveys about the electability of various political figures for the 2024 Presidential Elections that the Party has not even begun to think about it. The survey’s findings include names of PDIP cadres such as Puan Maharani and Ganjar Pranowo. “The Presidential Elections are still a long way away,” he said

Hasto went on to say that PDIP is different from other political parties. “The Party of the Bull works collectively, in accordance with the spirit of gotong-royong, meaning “mutual assistance”. PDIP is not moved by the force of individuals in terms of individualist power, but by the power of brotherhood,” he said. “Therefore, instead of thinking about the electability of its cadres as Presidential candidate or Vice Presidential candidate, PDIP prefers to take consolidating steps. PDIP’s electability continues to increase – we are currently the Number 1 party. We thank the people for their trust, and we continue to improve our internal condition in order to satisfy their needs.”

Several surveys found that Ganjar Pranowo is the PDIP cadre with the highest electability as potential presidential candidate for the 2024 Elections. When asked about these survey results, Ganjar responded neutrally: “I am busy taking care of the floods in my city, taking care of the vaccine, taking care of the Corona first, I really don’t have time to deal with surveys,” he said in an interview after the viral Tweet statement he made after inspecting the parking lot of the Governor of Central Java’s office, which was flooded last Tuesday (23/02/2021).
