After World Cup yellow card, Central Java governor Ganjar Pranowo gains critical support for president

The episode pitted Widodo against Planowo, who urged the soccer-obsessed nation to separate sports from politics in order to host its first major event next month.


Instead, it will be played in Argentina. Indonesia, who earned a rare spot in the final as hosts, will not have a team in the tournament.

Pranowo and Bali’s governor Wayan Koster said Sukarno’s historical rejection of the Israeli team and Israel’s involvement in adhering to Indonesia’s foreign policy, a strong campaigner for Palestinian self-determination After refusing, he took most of the blame.

But it was a blow to him and the PDIP, a position he repeated, but his nomination by the party cemented his favor almost nine months after the February 14 election.

Significantly, Pranowo appears to have the support of fellow party member Widodo. Both were on separate pages about the World Cup controversy, but the president’s visit to Central Java last week marked the end of their It was seen as a sign of continued collaboration. Widodo also attended the announcement and gave his own speech.


There is still a lot of work to be done before voters in the world’s third largest democracy vote to elect only the third directly elected president.

Recently, the PDIP discussed forming a coalition for the 2024 elections with other political groups, including the Gelindra party in Subianto. If it comes to pass, his 71-year-old Subianto, who lost to Widodo in the 2014 and his 2019 presidential elections, could enter the ticket as Planowo’s vice-presidential candidate.

It’s a combination favored by Widodo, who brought Prabowo to his cabinet after winning the presidential election for the second time, and is reportedly trying to preserve his legacy after he leaves office.

Megawati is said to have wanted House Speaker Puan Maharani, 49, on PDIP tickets, but there was some doubt as to whether she would have the popular support to claim the spot.

Former university rector Bhaswedan, 53, was endorsed as a candidate by a coalition of NasDem, Demokrat and PKS political parties.

If there are three presidential candidates in February, a runoff vote will be required to determine the winner unless one of them wins a majority.
