Jakarta, IO – PKS Party central secretariat chairman Mardani Ali Sera admits that it is not easy for political parties, including Islamic ones, to have renowned figures with high popularity.

Mardani said this in response to assessment by Paramadina Public Policy Institute managing director Ahmad Khoirul Umam who said that Islamic parties are not yet able to lead party coalition in the 2024 presidential election. The reason being Islamic parties have yet to have strong figures in the national political landscape.

“All party leaders have the opportunity to become national leaders. But the process to become a highly popular figure is not easy,” said Mardani on Wednesday (20/4).
