Not Kang Aher, Mardani PKS Instead Places AHY and Khofifah in the Top Order to Become Anies’ Vice Presidential Candidates

Suara.com – The chairman of the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) DPP Mardani Ali Sera said that at least there are several names of figures who are still being discussed for the possibility of being made as potential vice presidential candidates for Anies Baswedan in the 2024 presidential election.

First, Mardani mentioned the name of Democrat General Chair Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono (AHY). AHY’s name for himself is currently at the top of being Anies’ vice presidential candidate.

“You need to mention, Mas AHY for me is very top list, yes. Because he is the general chairman of the party with 54 seats, then he is young, he is an achiever,” said Mardani in an online discussion entitled ‘Chasing the Candidates for Vice President’, Saturday (13/5/2023).

“We have Kang Aher, the governor of Indonesia’s largest province, West Java, for two terms with extraordinary achievements,” he said.

So Mardani mentioned the name of the Governor of East Java, namely Khofifah Indar Parawansa. According to him, Khofifah could open Anies’ door close to Nahdlatul Ulama or NU.

“However, Mrs. Khofifah has been discussed a lot internally, because first of all she is a cool person, then based on East Java, we can strengthen Anies’ electability rather we can take it for female voters, and hopefully open access to Nahdalatul Ulama friends,” he said.

“Although mas Anies also, thank God, many NU communities have been invited in society,” he continued.

“Pak Surya Paloh has an interesting opinion, it would be very good if Mas Anies’s cawapres was decided after Mas Ganjar and Pak Prabowo had decided. So that there would be a fairer and more proportional fight,” he continued.
