DKI Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan refused to comment on his plan to nominate himself as a presidential candidate in the upcoming 2024 election on November 10, 2022.
Anies admitted that he is focusing on completing his term of office until October 16, 2022. In fact, the 3 parties that are planning to form a coalition, namely the National Democratic Party (NasDem), the Democratic Party and the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) have almost agreed to declare the former Chancellor of Paramadina University, Anies Baswedan as presidential candidate in the 2024 presidential election.
“It will only be discussed after October 16. Now I am concentrating,” said Anies at the Jakarta Convention Center (JCC), Jakarta, Thursday (29/09/2022).
When asked further by the media crew, Anies again only answered that he wanted to focus on managing DKI Jakarta before stepping down from his position as the number one person in DKI Jakarta.
Anies only said he would start talking about the 2024 presidential election after he retired as governor of DKI Jakarta.

“Anyway, I’ll take care of Jakarta first. Focus first here, then I’ll talk again,” he said.
Previously, NasDem Party politician Zulfan Lindan said that Anies was the strongest candidate that his party would propose to run for president in 2024.
In addition to Anies, the NasDem Party has announced two other candidates, namely Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranovo and TNI Commander General Andika Perkasa.
