Jakarta, IO – In the run up to 2024 elections, executive chairman of Gerindra Party’s central secretariat Sufmi Dasco Ahmad said the party is still conducting internal consolidation. He conveyed this to accommodate the aspiration of party ranks in the regions to renominate Gerindra Party chairman Prabowo Subianto as a presidential candidate.

Dasco made the statement in response to rumour that Prabowo-Puan nomination is gaining traction after Prabowo visited PDIP chairwoman Megawati Soekarnoputri in the context of silaturahmi (strengthening communal bonds) recently.
