JAKARTA – The Gerindra Party and the National Awakening Party (PKB) agreed to work together on Election 2024 . The agreement was the result of a meeting between the General Chairperson of the Gerindra Party Prabowo Subianto and Chairman of the PKB Muhaimin Iskandar (Cak Imin) on Saturday (18/6/2022).

Their agreement to initiate the Greater Indonesia Coalition increasingly shows the poles of the coalition ahead of the 2024 presidential election, where there are 4 poles of the coalition, namely the United Indonesia Coalition (KIB), the pole of the PDI-P (PDIP) and the pole of the Nasdem Party, PKS, and the Democratic Party.

“Of course political developments are still very dynamic going forward,” said Yusa Farchan, a political observer from the Citra Institute when contacted on Monday (20/6/2022).

However, Yusa sees that the problem is still the figure of the presidential and vice presidential candidates that will be carried by these coalitions. For example, KIB formed by Golkar, PAN, and PPP has the potential to become a separate axis.

However, KIB is still faced with the problem of who will be promoted as presidential and vice-presidential candidates. “If they take from internal political parties, of course the most appropriate are the general leaders. Taking into account the number of seats or votes, then Golkar General Chair Airlangga certainly has the most right to be promoted as a presidential candidate,” he said.

However, said Yusa, Airlangga’s electability is still far below Ganjar Pranowo, Prabowo, and Anies Baswedan, so this is a problem for MCH. “This political reality has made KIB able to take presidential candidates from external parties, such as Ganjar. What is clear is that Golkar together with PAN and PPP are currently building mutually beneficial political bargaining,” he explained.

Then, Yusa continued, the Greater Indonesia Coalition between the Gerindra Party and PKB. Even though they have met the 20% presidential threshold requirements and can nominate their own presidential and vice-presidential candidates. However, Yusa considered this coalition fragile if Prabowo was paired with Cak Imin in the presidential election.
