JAKARTA, IO – Gerindra Party chairman Prabowo Subianto inaugurated the party’s election campaign committee (Bapilu) in Slipi, West Jakarta, Saturday (7/1).

Prabowo’s presence at the location was greeted by Betawi-style Palang Pintu ceremony. A number of Gerindra Party elites were also there, including central executive board chairman Sufmi Dasco Ahmad, secretary general Ahmad Muzani and Board of Patrons deputy chairman Hashim Djojohadikusumo.

The inauguration was marked by the cutting of ribbon and nasi tumpeng (a cone-shaped rice dish). Prabowo, who is also the party’s Board of Patrons chairman, said in Pancasila democracy, a strong, credible and accommodating political party mechanism is needed to advance the interests of the people.

According to him, political parties must be able to represent the aspirations of the people and provide options for them especially since the 2024 elections will be held soon.
