GARUT VOICE – Chairman of the Gerindra Party, Garut Regency, West Java, Enan, said that the Regent of Garut, Rudy Gunawan, has the opportunity to run for Governor of West Java.
“It is possible that he (Rudy Gunawan) will go to the province, but there are stages before the regional elections, namely the legislative and presidential elections. The regent must first succeed his president in West Java, especially in Garut,” said Enan when met after commemorating the 78th TNI Day at Alun Garut City Square, Thursday (05/10/2023).
He admitted that Rudy was a cadre of his party, which would certainly make the presidential and legislative elections in 2024 a success.
However, Rudy’s nomination steps will not be easy, because there are 2 other candidates, namely Dedi Mulyani (former Regent of Purwakarta) and Iwan Bule, former General Chair of PSSI.

“Later, the party will be very objective, our general chairman recommends, first from a survey whether his electability is high or not. Within the party there is also Mr. Dedi Mulyani, a figure in West Java who has potential too, we’ll see,” he said.
He admitted that up to now there has been no discussion between Rudy Gunawan and his party officials. In fact, he only found out that Rudy would nominate as Governor of West Java from Gerindra and from the mass media.
Asked about the candidates for Regent and Deputy Regent of Garut from Gerindra, Enan did not want to give a clue as to who would be nominated.
“We will first concentrate on the legislative and presidential elections tomorrow,” he said.
Meanwhile, for the legislative elections, his party is targeting a minimum of 8 to 10 seats in the Garut DPRD.
