“If law enforcement is carried out correctly, half of this nation’s problems, God willing, will be resolved. If the law is good, then all aspects of people’s lives will be good too,” said Mahfud.

The following is Mahfud’s complete speech

For the trust given to me to accompany the presidential candidate Mr. H. Ganjar Pranowo as a Presidential Candidate, it is my honor and pride to be given the mandate to develop great responsibilities and start with Mas Ganjar, continuing the ideals of Bung Karno and other state founders to create a society Indonesia is justly prosperous and prosperous.

Bung Karno and Bung Hatta have led the Indonesian nation to the golden gate of Indonesian independence, Mas Ganjar and I together with all the people will continue our aspirations towards a golden Indonesia in 2045.

Indonesia’s dream of becoming a developed, just and civilized nation, in welcoming a golden Indonesia in 2045 will be realized if we fulfill a number of conditions, namely a strong national ideology, a good economy, upheld law and justice, democratic politics, a culture of mutual cooperation, and prioritizing brotherhood. If law enforcement is carried out correctly, half of this nation’s problems, God willing, will be resolved. If the law is good, then all aspects of people’s lives will be good too. for example in the social, political, cultural, defense, security and economic fields. the priority of eradicating corruption is legal certainty and consistency in the implementation of its enforcement, providing guarantees for investment and economic development as well as providing protection to the community.

In political development, our country adheres to democracy where power is in the hands of the people. In its implementation, democracy requires nomocracy, democracy is the sovereignty of the people, while nomocracy is the sovereignty of the law. Democracy without nomocracy will be anarchy, nomocracy without democracy will be arbitrary. So the two must go hand in hand and be balanced.

Democracy respects differences and these differences are natural or created by God, differences between humans, races, tribes and religions are created and willed by God himself.

If Allah wanted all of you to be one type, there would be no differences, but instead, I, Allah, caused you to be different so that you would compete to do good deeds, that is the word of Allah.

Indonesia’s diversity requires tolerance and acceptance, acceptance means that all the nation’s children can join while remaining in their respective beliefs. We all meet in the principle of kaliun sawa, namely fighting for the same thing among differences. There is no need to sharpen the differences between us, which in fact cannot be united in all things.

The same thing, or the sawa sentence which is definitely agreed upon by people regardless of their race or group, is justice. It will definitely be approved by anyone regardless of their religion. Certainly people agree with law enforcement and justice. Weak community protection and protection and compassion for the little people

I believe that Mas Ganjar is the right figure for the Indonesian nation, to realize the ideals I mentioned earlier, to accelerate and continue the development program that is already good, of course also to correct mistakes and make new innovations according to current developments while adhering to the constitution.

I have known Mas Ganjar for a long time since 2004 – 2008, we were members of the Republic of Indonesia’s DPR together and we often discussed and visited each other when Mas Ganjar led Central Java and I was chairman of the Constitutional Court. I know exactly that Mas Ganjar is a people and brave person who fixes the crooked things, dares to accept criticism, dares to fight for political values ​​that he believes to be true. I also know that Mr Ganjar comes from a devout Muslim family and carries out the mandate given to him, the mandate from his parents, the mandate from the party and especially from the people.

Lastly, currently I carry out my mandate as Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs of the Republic of Indonesia, whose duties include ensuring that elections run safely. because of my duties, so far I have never once stated that I will contest the election. I have never campaigned, put up banners, etc., this is the first time I have stated that I am willing to become a candidate for Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia because of the mandate that has been given by Mrs. Megawati and the leaders. the party was witnessed by all of us.

For those of you who have been delaying making a choice waiting for confirmation from me, now I declare that I am willing to take part in the contest.

Together with Mr. Ganjar, I will dedicate myself to all my abilities, my knowledge, my abilities, my firmness and firmness of attitude, as well as the courage I have shown to the nation. Of course, I would also like to thank President Joko Widodo who has given me the opportunity to serve the government freely so that I can help build the nation and state. God willing, with Allah’s blessing, we can take steps to realize a prosperous Indonesia, physically and mentally, justly and prosperously.

Thank you for your support and cooperation to all friends, but some of those present were Mrs. Puan (Puan Maharani), Mas Prananda (Prananda Prabowo), TPN Chairman Arsjad Rasjid, Secretary General of PDIP Hasto, Olly Dondokambey, as well as another friend Andika Perkasa and I thank all of you. for the discussions and support so far that today I stand up to declare my willingness to contest the 2024 presidential election.
