NasDem Elite Zulfan Lindan heated debate with Prabowo Subianto’s spokesman, Dahnil Anzar Simanjuntak. The argument between the two began with Zulfan’s statement revealing the message of the General Chairperson of NasDem Surya Paloh to the General Chairperson of Gerindra Prabowo Subianto regarding ‘we are old’.
The conversation, said Zulfan, occurred during Surya Paloh’s meeting with Prabowo some time ago at the NasDem Tower, Central Jakarta. At that time, said Zulfan, Surya Paloh advised Prabowo that they were not young anymore to advance in the 2024 contestation.
Initially, Zulfan told that all NasDem DPWs had their respective champions to be put forward for the 2024 presidential candidate at the NasDem National Working Meeting some time ago.
“I want to tell you first how this happened in my environment within NasDem regarding the three candidates. At first, each DPW had a candidate, there were various kinds, there was the Governor of Aceh, there was Governor Khofifah, right, there could be 20 presidential candidates, ” said Zulfan at the Total Politics event at Bangi Kopi, Pasar Minggu, South Jakarta, Sunday (17/7/2022).
Then, from the 20 names of presidential candidates collected, it narrowed down to five candidates. According to the agreement, NasDem finally only chose the three biggest. Of the three presidential candidates, said Zulfan, not a single NasDem internal candidate nominated Prabowo.
“Indeed, from NasDem’s internal side, there is not a single lower structure that nominates Prabowo. Lo, it means that this is well coordinated, right,” Zulfan said, greeted by laughter from the audience.
This is where the chairman of the NasDem DPP leaked Surya Paloh’s message to Prabowo, who met for 5 hours. Paloh advised Prabowo that they were old and it was time to give the young people a chance to run as presidential candidates.
“Actually, the NasDem cadres arrested Mr. Surya saying ‘Never mind Mr. Prabowo, we are old, love the young ones’. like thatit has been arrested,” said.
Apparently, Zulfan said, the message was captured by the cadres, so that no one in their internal circle voted for Prabowo during the NasDem National Working Meeting. However, Zulfan said, in the political world, it is possible that the situation will reverse.
“Yes, I’m back to talking about politics, that can be reversed later, our life experience has never really liked liking someone, but suddenly one day we become close friends, both male and female,” said Zulfan.
