Suara.com – Presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto admitted that he had tried many times to meet with PDI-P General Chair Megawati Soekarnoputri.
This meeting was in line with Prabowo’s steps to attract PDIP cadre, Gibran Rakabuming Raka, to become his vice presidential candidate. Prabowo wants to meet with Megawati to communicate regarding his steps.
But unfortunately, his repeated efforts to hold this meeting were never realized.
“I’ve tried, I’ve asked for time many times, but I haven’t gotten the time,” said Prabowo at the Djakarta Theater, Tuesday (24/10/2023).
Even though they have not met until now, the Chairman of the Gerindra Party admits that he is still waiting for Megawati to take the time.
“I’ve waited long enough,” said Prabowo.
Previously, Prabowo admitted that he did not yet know clearly about the status of his potential vice presidential candidate, Gibran, whether he was still a PDI Perjuangan cadre or not.
Until now, it is not known for certain whether Gibran has resigned from PDIP or not following his steps in accepting Prabowo’s proposal to run together in the 2024 presidential election.
“I myself am not clear whether he will come out or not,” said Prabowo.
However, Prabowo admitted that he did not make Gibran’s status in PDIP a problem.
“For us there is no problem. Because we think it is good. So we consider all parties to be comrades in arms, both children of the Indonesian nation, so there is no problem, there is no problem,” said Prabowo.
“So we will be happy if he remains a PDIP cadre,” continued Prabowo.
