PDIP Secretary General Hasto Kristiyanto responded that the trend of PDIP electability was declining ahead of the 2024 General Election in the Charta Politica survey. Hasto revealed the direction of PDIP General Chair Megawati Soekarnoputri not to use surveys as a guide for cadres.
“Yes, that’s why the survey, the direction of Mrs. (Megawati Soekarnoputri) not to be used as a guide because it can go up, down, the dangerous thing is if you keep going down the mountain, that’s dangerous,” said Hasto at the PDIP Party School, Lenteng Agung, South Jakarta, Thursday ( 22/9/2022).
Hasto said the ups and downs of party electability are common. Hasto then mentioned the PDIP’s electoral average of 22 to 26 percent.
“But if that’s the dynamics, it’s a normal thing, but we see that the trend from the PDIP electoral average is 22 to 26, that’s the range,” said Hasto.
