Suara.com – Political analyst and Executive Director of Indonesian Political Parameters, Adi Prayitno, assesses that it is possible that the PDI Perjuangan (PDIP) is no longer profitable for Indonesian President Jokowi and his family.
This was marked by Bobby Nasution’s attitude in choosing to support Prabowo-Gibran in the 2024 presidential election.
“For me, the departure of (Jokowi’s) family from PDIP must be placed in the context that politics is a measure of profit and loss. Maybe for the president’s family, PDIP is no longer profitable in terms of a future political career,” said Adi when contacted by Suara.com, Thursday (9 /11/2023).
“So try new luck. Even if it has to go against the large current of public protest,” he continued.

He said, a politician must think about profits and losses. For this reason, politicians will abandon things that are no longer considered profitable.
“Politicians think about the advantages and disadvantages of politics. They will abandon something that is not profitable and will capitalize on something that is profitable even if it goes against the flow,” he said.
Furthermore, he said, the phenomenon of politicians changing parties is a common thing. Gibran Rakabuming Raka and Bobby Nasution are considered the tip of the iceberg.
“Gibran and Bobby who are no longer with PDIP are the tip of the iceberg of how low our party ID (party identity) is. Leaving parties like this is a normal thing in our politics, which became popular because it happened to the president’s family,” he said.
