Of all the names of the presidential candidates who are included in the Nasdem list, none of the names of Prabowo have been proposed by the DPW.
“I want to tell you first how this happened in my environment within NasDem regarding the 3 candidates. At first, each DPW had a candidate, there were various kinds, there was the Aceh Governor, there was Governor Khofifah, right, there could be 20 presidential candidates, ” said Zulfan in South Jakarta, Sunday, July 17, 2022.
Furthermore, from the 20 names of presidential candidates that were collected, it finally narrowed down to 5 candidates. However, according to the National Working Meeting agreement, NasDem ultimately only chose the top 3 positions with the most votes from the DPW.
“According to the three survey figures, we are the highest three. It’s amazing, from internal Nasdem there is no lower structure that nominate Prabowo,” Zulfan continued.
