Gibran’s Viral Advice After Becoming Prabowo’s Vice Presidential Candidate Tech – 2 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Gibran Rakabuming Raka’s name is currently a hot topic of conversation on social media. Based on CNBC Indonesia’s monitoring, Tuesday (24/10/2023), the Mayor of Solo, who is also the eldest son of Indonesian President Joko Widodo, was included in the ‘trending topic’ list on X (formerly Twitter).

A total of 109,000 tweets spread across platform X were detected discussing the topic ‘Gibran’. This follows an announcement from the presidential candidate (capres) from the Advanced Indonesia Coalition (KIM) party Prabowo Subianto who said he would side with Gibran as vice presidential candidate (cawapres).


The announcement was made after the Constitutional Court (MK) decision regarding the minimum age limit for presidential and vice presidential candidates is 40 years. The Constitutional Court’s decision is considered to have opened up opportunities for Gibran, who is still 36 years old, to run as vice presidential candidate.

In the Constitutional Court’s decision, it is stated that the criteria for running as vice presidential candidate under 40 years is having previously been a Regional Head. Gibran’s portfolio as Mayor of Solo meets these requirements.

Netizens are busy commenting on this. There are those who fully support Gibran’s steps to advance as number 2 person in the Republic of Indonesia, but it is not uncommon for those who criticize him.

Netizens also changed the location of the Constitutional Court Building to ‘Family Court’ on the digital map service Google Maps. For information, Chief Constitutional Justice Anwar Usman is none other than Jokowi’s brother-in-law and Gibran’s uncle.

In the midst of this excitement, Gibran on Sunday (22/10) gave ‘advice’ to netizens.

“Stay relaxed even though it’s trending,” he said via his personal X account @gibran_tweet

He made this tweet when responding to a tweet from a netizen who asked for “words of the day” from Gibran.

Following are several comments from netizens regarding Gibran’s candidacy as summarized by CNBC Indonesia.

“Today @psi_id God willing, declare support for the presidential election for Prabowo Gibran’s partner.

The party we belong to, PSI, is not yet compatible with Mas @ganjar_pranowo or Mr @aniesbaswedan

However, for us, the presidential election is a normal contest every five years. This difference in choice does not have to break friendships with friends who have different supports.

Hopefully we will continue to remain friends, OK!” said the account @FaldoMaldini

“Why are you so sullen, bro? Gibran? He has been nominated as vice presidential candidate. Come one, smile….,” said the account @narkosun, while sharing video footage of Gibran visiting the Solo Mayor’s office.

“Tomorrow, Wednesday, when Gibran declares Prabowo’s vice presidential candidate… I will remove the Jokowi Attribute Header that I have made and used since I supported Jokowi.

As a form of disappointment and resistance to the brutal behavior shown recently by the Jokowi Family towards Indonesian Democracy

If you want to take part, please save and change your header.. Slide 1 is what I will use personally.. Slide 2 is for you.. we will use it until Ganjar Mahfud’s victory day

Let’s win Ganjar Mahfud..

As a form of our resistance against this Cawe Cawe of Power,” said the account @StefanAntonio__

“GIBRAN’S EXPERIENCE IS WORTHY TO BE PRABOWO’S CAWAPRES

Gibran has:

2 periods of experience as the son of the Mayor of Solo,

2 years as the son of the Governor of Jakarta,

2 terms as the President’s son and the last

2 years as Mayor of Solo.

Let’s AMEN Indonesia,” said the account @ommi_siregar.
