Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Chairman of the Prabowo-Gibran Regional Campaign Team for West Java region, Ridwan Kamil, has opened his voice regarding the appearance of Presidential Candidate number 2, Prabowo Subianto. The former Governor of West Java said Prabowo appeared witty and entertaining during the first 2024 presidential candidate debate.

“If we want to be honest, let’s be objective, yes, from the appearance of the most humorous debate, which makes entertainment reduce tension, because the perception of debate is that it is super serious and tense, it has been successfully distilled with his style,” said Ridwan Kamil as quoted, Saturday (16/12/2023).

Ridwan Kamil explained that Prabowo really wanted to appear relaxed and not too serious during the first presidential debate in 2024. Prabowo even left a message to his team that he would carry out cheerful politics not only during the campaign but also during the debate.


“Why? One is because he has experience doing this often. Second, he advised us all to carry out cheerful politics not only during campaigns but during debates too,” he added.

It was Prabowo’s appearance that apparently made the atmosphere of the first 2024 presidential candidate debate boisterous, aka busy. However, Ridwan Kamil emphasized that Prabowo’s relaxed appearance does not mean he is not serious, the vision and mission he has put forward will still be carried out according to its substance.

“That’s what makes the atmosphere of the debate more relaxed, more fluid. I think from that point of view viewers can see the seriousness and humor of Pak Prabowo’s personality,” said Ridwan Kamil.

Meanwhile, Ridwan Kamil gave an idea of ​​what kind of style Prabowo Subianto will use in the next 2024 presidential candidate debate. Just like the first presidential debate, Prabowo will appear witty and entertaining but still serious.

“That’s why I said don’t be too serious, there is fun, there is antics, the people also have entertainment but in seriousness,” said Ridwan Kamil.

Ridwan Kamil is optimistic that Prabowo’s experience from the previous presidential election will be assessed positively by the Indonesian people. In the next debate, Ridwan Kamil said Prabowo would appear more cheerful.

“Pak Prabowo has done this several times in the following debates, he will be more cheerful, more witty, but the substance will still be in line with the expectations of the Indonesian people. The point is that Mr Prabowo is the most prepared and also witty in diluting debates that seem to be perceived as serious,” he stressed.

Appearing cheerful and witty doesn’t mean you’re not serious. According to Ridwan Kamil Prabowo will remain focused on carrying out his vision and mission.

Ridwan Kamil explained that Prabowo-Gibran’s vision and mission were already in the Asta Cita concept, including how to resolve the problem of current and past gross human rights violations. Prabowo has emphasized that he will resolve the problem.

“Only in the debate it was conveyed within limitations. But it was conveyed because it was a debt from the past that we had to clear up,” he said.

So, with a witty and cheerful style, won’t it have an impact on Prabowo-Gibran’s votes? Ridwan Kamil firmly answered this way.

“From the statistics, there aren’t that many people who change their choices after the debate. Those who like them still like them, those who don’t like them still don’t like them, only a little,” he concluded.
