Suara Denpasar – Gibran Rakabuming is in the spotlight after officially qualifying as vice presidential candidate after the Constitutional Court issued Decision number 90.
The decision of the Constitutional Court, which at that time was led by Anwar Usman, Gibran’s uncle, added a phrase to the law regarding the requirements for presidential and vice presidential candidates.
In short, the decision allows anyone to register as a presidential or vice presidential candidate even if they are not yet 40 years old as long as they have served or are currently serving as regional heads.
It was because of this decision that Gibran Rakabuming succeeded in running as Vice Presidential Candidate for Prabowo Subianto, the Advanced Indonesia Coalition.
Then, the three presidential and vice presidential candidate pairs just took part in the serial number drawing event by the KPU.
As a result, Anies Baswedan and Muhaimin Iskandar (Cak Imin) from the Coalition for Change for Unity got serial number 1.
The pair Prabowo Subianto and Gibran Rakabuming got serial number 2 and the pair Ganjar Pranowo and Mahfud MD got serial number 3.
The event was broadcast on a national television station. What was interesting was the moment when Ganjar-Mahfud’s supporters who sat in the middle row displayed writing that looked like satire.
“We are #Pioneers, not #Inheritors,” the writing was raised until it was recorded on camera, reported by Suara Denpasar from the KOMPASTV YouTube channel on Wednesday (15/11/2023).
It was not explained who the writing was for, but supporters of Ganjar-Mahfud spread the writing in front of the couple and supporters of Prabowo-Gibran and Anies-Cak Imin directly, because the three of them were both in the same place. (*/Ana AP)
