Adi said that in his survey findings, the community was divided by the number of political parties that exist today. There were 33.6% who thought it was ideal, 32.1% thought it was too much to reduce it, and 8.7% thought it was necessary to add another party.
He mentioned that of the existing political parties, PDIP is still the party with the highest electability, namely 25.1%, followed by Golkar with 11.2% and Gerindra with 10.9%.
“Gerindra’s electability seems to have decreased. It is reasonable to suspect this is due to the negative effect of Gerindra’s joining into the Work Cabinet Volume 2,” he explained.
