TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - It has been more than a month since the NasDem Party declared Anies Baswedan as presidential candidate for 2024. However, the declaration is not enough to bring Anies to the stage of general elections because NasDem’s votes are less than 20 percent, the requirement to present a presidential nominee. The Democrat Party and the Justice and Prosperity Party (PKS) have not yet declared their candidates until now.
Democrat and the PKS are eyeing the vice-presidential candidate’s seat. Democrat promotes Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono, its chairman. The PKS puts forward Ahmad Heryawan, the former West Java governor. Moreover, the support for Anies in the PKS is not so unanimous. Some politicians are awaiting the final word of the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to investigate Anies in the Formula E alleged corruption case.
The fluid coalition supporting Anies allows other parties to disrupt it. The PKS and Democrat got offers for general elections funding and ministerial seats if they are prepared to abandon the NasDem coalition.
The other coalition is still not solid as well. The United Indonesia Coalition (KIB) comprising Golkar, the National Mandate Party (PAN) and the United Development Party (PPP) is reportedly also considering Anies to be their champion. The KIB was previously said to be intending to support Ganjar Pranowo, a politician of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) who is now governor of Central Java.
