PDI-P Likely to Choose Ridwan Kamil as Ganjar’ Running Pair
The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) internally believed that PDI-P Chairwoman Megawati Soekarnoputri would likely pick Ridwan Kamil as Ganjar Pranowo’s running mate for the 2024 Presidential Election.
Ridwan Kamil has been seen as the most “charming” candidate due to his achievements as a West Java governor, and Bandung Mayor beforehand, and also for his soaring electability. In various surveys, Ridwan Kamil is always recorded as the top three favorite vice-president candidates, along with Sandiaga Uno and Erick Thohir.
However, Ridwan Kamil, who is now deputy Golkar Party chief, would face internal rejection as the Golkar Party would have insisted on naming its chairman Airlangga Hartarto as vice-president candidate for Prabowo Subianto.
