Prabowo-Gibran campaign team highlights intimidation of volunteers in Solo


Jakarta, IO – The Prabowo-Gibran campaign team (TKN) highlighted cases of intimidation carried out against members of their volunteer organization Bolone Mase, who support the Onward Indonesia Coalition’s vice presidential candidate Gibran Rakabuming Raka, by unknown people in Solo, Central Java, over the last few weeks.

Prabowo-Gibran TKN spokesperson Herzaky Mahendra Putra said this should not have happened and appealed to all parties to maintain peace and harmony ahead of the 2024 Elections.

“According to media report, two field coordinators received intimidations and verbal abuse laced with profanities. If this was due to differing political choices it shouldn’t have happened. We are fellow countrymen regardless of our support for the contenders,” said Herzaky.

It was reported that two field coordinators were harassed at their respective homes. Their house was besieged, photographed and the door was banged on by unknown people.

“We supported the volunteers, who feel disturbed by these activities, to report it to the authorities. Apart from seeking the truth, it will also set an example so that it does not become a precedent and is considered normal in the future,” said Herzaky.

The Democratic Party politician said the election in 2024 should really be a celebration of democracy filled with joy, not fear.

“Differences in choice are normal, but me must not be hostile. In any region in Indonesia, each person has the right to support (their preferred candidate) and cast their vote without fear of intimidation,” he said. (TKN/G)
