According to him, PDIP can nominate pairs of presidential and vice presidential candidates (capres-cawapres) in the 2024 presidential election without forming a coalition with other political parties.

“[Hal] What needs to be understood is that PDIP is the only party that holds golden ticket to run for legislative and presidential elections.

“Don’t bring up the contest too early, sorry President Jokowi. Because Mr. Jokowi now, when the pandemic is under control, he is moving quickly throughout Indonesia. This is what PDI-P has responded to,” Hasto said in a written statement, Sunday (31/10) yesterday.

According to Hasto, since the beginning, PDIP has expressed its position that the matter of the presidential candidate will be decided by General Chair Megawati Soekarnoputri. The party bearing the symbol of the bull also stated that the announcement of the presidential candidate was waiting for the right momentum.

“Mrs. Mega will decide later. Politics is an art. Later there will be momentum. The presidential and vice presidential candidates will be presented at the right moment,” he said.

Hasto on that occasion revealed that PDIP will hold a National Working Meeting (Rakernas) in early December to prepare for the 2024 election.

According to Hasto, in the National Working Meeting, the party will prepare all ranks so that the collective interests of the nation and state are resolved.

“So that the party’s responsibility to more than 270 million Indonesian people can be fulfilled as well as possible,” he added.
