Jakarta, CNN Indonesia

President Joko Widodo respond to the news that he supports Prabowo Subianto and Ganjar Pranowo to become presidential candidates (candidates) in the 2024 presidential election. Jokowi neither confirms nor denies the issue. It just allows anyone to express their opinion.

“I guess for conveying to me [tentang Prabowo dan Ganjar]cook me [katakan] don’t. No, no, no, please, our democracy must be conveyed that way,” said Jokowi at the Presidential Palace in Jakarta, Friday (12/8).

Jokowi said he did not want to prevent anyone from having an opinion. He also did not prohibit any party from interpreting his attitude as a form of support for Ganjar and Prabowo.



“Please that it is interpreted as blessing, go ahead,” said Jokowi.

Previously, a number of parties speculated about Jokowi’s support for the presidential candidate for the 2024 presidential election. Jokowi’s closeness with Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto did not escape public discussion.

PDIP DPP chairman Bambang Wuryanto also commented on Jokowi’s chance of support. According to him, Jokowi is likely to push Prabowo in the upcoming elections.

“For example, Pak Jokowi is close to Pak Prabowo, 100 percent close, connected. If that’s the size, it’s difficult to connect with Ganjar, his feelings, it’s difficult to connect,” said Bambang in the CNN Political Show ‘The Riddle of Jokowi’s Choice of Presidential Candidates’ on Wednesday (10 /8).
