Partai Keadilan Sejahtera (PKS) changed its course by nominating Anies Baswedan as the candidate for governor in the 2024 Jakarta Pilkada while its own cadre, Sohibul Iman, is only nominated as the deputy governor candidate.


However, Syaikhu admitted that there has been no formal communication with PDIP leaders regarding the Jakarta Regional Election so far. “I haven’t formally communicated with PDIP yet,” explained Syaikhu.

“Because the regulations for regional elections and general elections are different. For general elections, each TPS has no more than 300 voters, while for regional elections, it can have up to 800 voters,” she explained.

“Mr. Ahok and Mr. Djarot are being urged to run in North Sumatra. This is interesting because North Sumatra needs significant changes,” said Eriko at the PDIP DPP Office, Central Jakarta, as quoted on Friday (17/5/2024).

Moreover, the decision to nominate Anies-Iman is primarily a result of public criticism suggesting that nominating Sohibul Iman was not a strategic move. “The name Sohibul Iman clearly lacks appeal in Jakarta. This situation gave Anies’s supporters within PKS the opportunity to push for the Anies-Iman pair,” he stated. Thus, Ray believes there were no external circumstances compelling PKS to hastily declare Anies-Iman. The declaration of Anies-Iman does not benefit Anies’s position at all. “Pairing Anies-Iman is like pairing two brothers. Anies’s voters are PKS supporters. PKS supporters’ idol is Anies. So, there is no added value for this pair. They are just circling within their own inner circle,” explained Ray. This situation, Ray said, provides a fresh opportunity for other candidates who can accommodate Jakarta’s pluralism to confidently enter the Jakarta Pilkada. “Anies needs another figure who strengthens his identity beyond just one circle. The face of Jakarta is plural. Candidates should accommodate Jakarta’s pluralistic face in their pair selection. Broadening, not narrowing. Opening up, not closing down. Therefore, this situation provides a fresh breeze for other candidates to confidently enter Jakarta,” Ray closed.

Eriko stated that the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle has many members who could be endorsed as the governor candidate for East Java in 2024, including Secretary of the Cabinet Pramono Anung. “Now let me ask, don’t we have a candidate for governor? We do. Can’t Mr. Pram do it? He could in Jakarta, why not in East Java,” he said. Besides Pramono Anung, he also mentioned Tri Rismaharini, the Social Affairs Minister and Chairman of the DPR RI Budget Board (Banggar) Said Abdullah. “Could Mrs. Tri Rismaharini not be suitable for East Java? Could Mr. Said Abdullah not be suitable for East Java?” he added.

“We are still very flexible, but maybe we will prioritize more towards KIM, more towards the Advanced Indonesia Coalition,” said Eko at the Parliament Complex, Jakarta, Tuesday . However, according to him, PAN has already decided to propose Zita Anjani as the candidate for deputy governor . He noted that PAN envisions the female politician being paired with any candidate. “It would be great, Zita Anjani with Kaesang, Kaesang as the governor, Zita as the deputy governor, both young, complementing each other, it looks interesting to me,” said the politician and DPR RI member.

Previously, PDIP DPP Chairperson Said Abdullah said that he had visited Cak Imin’s residence to discuss cooperation in the Jakarta Pilkada. Said mentioned that PKB is ready to nominate Anies Baswedan in the Jakarta gubernatorial election. “We visited the PKB General Chair’s house, I remember it was after Friday prayers on May 30 before going to Mecca. We talked heart-to-heart, building communication among elites, sharing views,” Said clarified. During the meeting, Said admitted, PKB has a strong opportunity to nominate Anies in the Jakarta gubernatorial election. “As far as I know from PKB, if I’m not mistaken, they are ready to nominate Anies Rasyid Baswedan,” he stated. Said mentioned that the meeting’s results with Cak Imin had been reported to PDIP Secretary-General Hasto Kristiyanto and PDIP DPP Chairperson Puan Maharani. He said he would also report the view to Chairperson Megawati Soekarnoputri. “Not necessarily with PDIP, we share views, not seeking agreement. My task is to report to Mbak Puan and Mr. Secretary-General,” said Said. “Maybe later there will be a meeting with the Chairperson to discuss the results of every lobby or mutual visits among elites,” he added.

For your information, the news about Kaesang running in the 2024 Jakarta Regional Election is not new. Previously, Kaesang was often paired with Gerindra cadre Budi Djiwandono. However, that news subsided and was not heard again. Recently, Kaesang was rumored to be paired with Anies Baswedan by the Advanced Indonesia Coalition (KIM). However, this was denied by Gerindra .

Regarding the voter participation rate in the regional elections, Ummi said that the West Java KPU targets more than 75 percent participation. The total number of voters in West Java is estimated to be around 35-36 million.

Earlier, Jakarta PAN Regional Chairman Eko Hendro Purnomo, or Eko Patrio, mentioned that his party would prioritize supporting the gubernatorial candidate endorsed by the Advanced Indonesia Coalition (KIM) for the 2024 Jakarta Regional Election. According to him, Jakarta residents currently have a variety of candidate names for Jakarta, including Sohibul Iman, Ridwan Kamil, and Anies Baswedan. Therefore, he is still waiting for direction from KIM regarding which name will be supported .
