JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Political observer M Qodari said President Joko Widodo had a gesture that seemed comfortable with Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto.
This was said by Qodari when he saw the moment when the General Chairperson of the Gerindra Party represented Jokowi at the closing of the 2022 Presidential Cup tournament, Saturday (6/8/2022).
“If that’s true, this is the clearest signal that Pak Jokowi ‘has a heart’, Pak Jokowi is ‘playing with his heart’ with Prabowo,” said Qodari in a discussion held by Total Politics, as quoted from BetweenSunday (7/8/2022).
Furthermore, he judged, supporting Prabowo in the contest Election 2024 is the most logical thing for Jokowi.
“Rationally, it makes sense that Pak Jokowi is close to and supports Prabowo because he is again among the most likely presidential candidates,” said Qodari.
In addition, Qodari continued, Prabowo has a number of advantages over two other names whose electability often occupies the top three 2024 presidential candidates in a number of survey institutions.
He said Prabowo’s superiority was as the general chairman of the Greater Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra).
Apart from being a political machine, Gerindra also occupied hundreds of seats in the DPR RI.
Moreover, his party supports Prabowo as a presidential candidate.
“Well, if there are two criteria, electability and political parties, all of them are correct. The most certain presidential candidate today who can run is Prabowo Subianto,” said Qodari.
