Attracting Gibran, Prabowo Reveals Will Be Sowan to Megawati News – 7 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Presidential Candidate (Capres) from the Forward Indonesia Coalition, Prabowo Subianto, revealed that he plans to meet PDIP General Chair Megawati Soekarnoputri, after appointing Gibran Rakabuming Raka as Vice Presidential Candidate (Cawapres) to accompany him in the 2024 Presidential Election.

However, Prabowo admitted that he was still waiting for an answer from the PDIP General Chair. He said that the plan for this meeting was none other than to discuss the matter of appointing Gibran as his vice presidential candidate.

“I’m waiting,” said Prabowo after undergoing a medical test at Gatot Subroto Army Hospital, Jakarta, Thursday (26/10/2024).

The General Chair of the Gerindra Party said he was always ready if Megawati wanted to meet him. He hopes Megawati will give him time.

“I’m ready if given the time, I’m ready,” he said.

Three days ago, Monday (23/10/2023), Prabowo expressed his desire to meet Mega. At that time, he said he was still waiting for Mega’s answer.

“I have asked for time to meet Mrs. Mega,” said Prabowo after the Gerindra Party’s national meeting at The Dharmawangsa Jakarta.

Prabowo said he could not confirm when the meeting would take place. He said that he was currently still waiting for an answer from the Mega camp.

“Still waiting,” he said.

The Prabowo-Mega relationship is still a question after the Advanced Indonesia Coalition proposed Gibran Rakabuming Raka as vice presidential candidate. Gibran is a PDIP cadre who is also the eldest son of President Joko Widodo. Yesterday, Wednesday (25/10/2023), Prabowo-Gibran registered themselves with the KPU as presidential and vice presidential candidates.

Gibran’s decision to run with Prabowo clearly contradicts the PDIP’s decision to nominate Ganjar Pranowo and Mahfud Md as presidential and vice presidential candidates.

Gibran’s attitude made the internal bull party react. Solo City PDIP DPC Chairman FX Hadi Rudyatmo asked Gibran to have the courage to submit a letter of resignation.

He said don’t let the public think that Megawati is playing with two feet. He asked Gibran to remember Mega’s service in providing a letter of recommendation so that Gibran could become Mayor of Solo. This position as regional head paved the way for Gibran to become vice presidential candidate.

“So with great respect, I hope that Mas Gibran will have the courage to write a letter of resignation and return the KTA to the PDIP DPC,” he said, quoted from detikcom.

When Gibran was met after undergoing a health check at the RSPAD, he also did not give a firm answer regarding his membership in the PDIP. He only said that his status was clear, without providing further explanation.

“It’s clear, you know, it’s clear,” he said.
