Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs (Menko Polhukam) Mahfud MD said that so far no one has asked for her hand in marriage 2024 presidential election future.

This was said by Mahfud to answer the issue that his name was included in the stock exchange for vice presidential candidates (cawapres). His name is also associated with Prabowo Subianto.

“There was no application,” said Mahfud MD at the Grahadi State Building, Surabaya, Saturday (29/4) evening.

Mahfud said he would answer whether he was ready or not. Because now, he said, was not the right time to talk about it.

“I said ready or not ready later. It’s not time yet,” he said.

Mahfud also said that the 2024 Election case was a matter for political parties. So, he felt he could not enter and talk about it.

“That’s a ball game, that’s a political matter, then it’s the people’s business to meet there. We can’t enter the arena yet,” said Mahfud.

Previously, a number of parties rolled out the Prabowo-Mahfud discourse as the presidential and vice presidential pair for the 2024 election after the two figures met at Mahfud’s official residence in Kuningan, South Jakarta, on Tuesday (25/4).

The two claimed that the meeting was just a friendship. After the meeting, Prabowo invited Mahfud to his residence in Hambalang, Bogor, West Java. Mahfud MD agreed to this invitation.
