Of the various comments discussing the ‘marriage’ of Ganjar and Mahfud, there were some who created an abbreviation for the presidential and vice presidential candidate pair.

Comedian Ernest Prakasa in his personal X account suggested the duet name ‘GAFUD’ which is similar to a play on GoTo’s GoFood food delivery service.

“Reward Pranowo – Mahfud MD.

Suggestions for duet names: GAFUD.

“Hungry? Just go food. President? Gafud Just.”

PDIP General Chair Megawati Soekarnoputri announced the ‘marriage’ at an event at the PDIP DPP Office on Jalan Pangeran Diponegoro, Menteng, Central Jakarta, Wednesday (18/10/2023) today.

“By saying bismillahirrahmanirrahim, the vice presidential candidate chosen by PDIP who will accompany Mr. Ganjar Pranowo is Mr. Professor Mahfud MD,” said Megawati.

“I noticed that his knowledge in the legal field is very full of experience,” said Megawati.

Furthermore, Megawati said that Mahfud was a figure with complete experience in the legislative, executive and judicial domains. Then, he continued, Mahfud was also known as a legal warrior and defender of the little people.
