The Anies-Ganjar-Prabowo camp ‘opens war’ fighting over this figure News – 2 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Fierce competition between the three presidential candidates (candidates) is starting to occur. Both the Anies, Ganjar and Prabowo camps are fighting over this figure. Who’s he?

East Java Governor Khofifah Indar Parawansa failed to become a vice presidential candidate (cawapres). Previously, Khofifah was said to be the vice presidential candidate for Anies Baswedan and Ganjar Pranowo.

Khofifah even became a strong candidate for Ganjar’s vice presidential candidate. He has met with PDIP Chairman Megawati Soekarnoputri. However, at the last minute, PDIP announced Mahfud MD as Ganjar’s vice presidential candidate.


Even though he was canceled as vice presidential candidate, Khofifah’s name is still being contested by the Ganjar and Anies camps. Quoting detik.com, the General Chair of the PKB and vice presidential candidate (bacawapres) Anies Baswedan, Muhaimin Iskandar (Cak Imin), said that Khofifah Indar Parawansa’s name was on the radar to join the national winning team (TPN).

“I don’t want to say each person, the main thing is that everyone is a public figure, whoever we try to approach, we don’t need to mention anyone’s name, the main thing is we try to approach them,” said Cak Imin to journalists in Kaliwates Kidul, Jember, East Java, last Sunday (29/ 10/2023).

Meanwhile, an invitation to Khofifah to join the winning team was also conveyed by the Chairman of the PKB DPP, Daniel Johan. Daniel said that AMIN (an abbreviation of Anies-Cak Imin) clearly has the Nahdatul Ulama (NU) gene.

“Mbak Khofifah is with AMIN, whose NU genes are clear, the great-granddaughter of the NU founder,” said the Chairman of the PKB DPP, Daniel Johan

Meanwhile, PDIP presidential candidate Ganjar Pranowo hopes that Khofifah will join the National Winning Team (TPN). He said he had a good closeness with this figure.

“Yes, I communicated continuously when I went to East Java, ‘Mrs Khofifah, I’m here’, (Khofifah answered) ‘Yes, I hope it’s successful.’ “Because I am very good with him,” said Ganjar to journalists at the PDIP Party School, Lenteng Agung, South Jakarta, Saturday (28/10/2023).

Investigating after investigation is not only the Ganjar and Anies camp, it turns out Prabowo Subianto’s camp too. Spokesperson for the Advanced Indonesia Coalition (KIM) Herman Khaeron also persuaded the Governor of East Java to join the winning team of Prabowo Subianto and Gibran Rakabuming Raka. The effort to attract Khofifah, said Herman, was because Khofifah’s name had previously been proposed as Prabowo’s vice presidential candidate by the Democratic Party.

“Yes, that’s the hope (of joining the winning team). The hope is that Mrs. Khofifah, as regional leader in East Java, as a political entity, when she was Governor, was supported by Golkar and the Democrats, yes, when she was Governor, Golkar and the Democrats,” said Herman. to journalists at the Parliament Complex, Senayan, Jakarta, last Monday (23/10/2023).

The chairman of the Democratic Party’s BPOKK said that his party and Golkar had a track record of supporting Khofifah in the last East Java gubernatorial election. Therefore, he is sure that Khofifah’s support is not far from these two parties.

“Now Golkar and the Democrats are in KIM, so God willing, Mrs. Khofifah won’t run anywhere,” said Herman.

“We have (invited to join the team). Pak Prabowo has also met there,” he continued.
