Jakarta, IO – Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) chairman of central leadership board Mardani Ali Sera said the party is still exploring which presidential hopeful figure to support in the 2024 election.

Poll results by Saiful Mujani Research and Consulting (SMRC) found that Anies Baswedan and Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono (Anies-AHY) pair outperformed Prabowo Subianto and Puan Maharani (Prabowo-Puan) in a three-pair simulation of presidential candidates.

Regarding the findings, Mardani is of the view that all poll results are good, because they seek to capture the aspirations of the people. However, he said on Friday (8/4) that PKS is still in communication with all parties to find the strongest figure.
