TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The rumor of Jakarta Deputy Governor Sandiaga Uno having been appointed to be Prabowo Subianto`s running-mate is growing stronger than ever.
Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said that he has not considered or thought about a replacement for Sandiaga if the deputy governor does run for the upcoming presidential election.
Anies is currently waiting for official confirmation on Sandiaga’s candidacy; “We will discuss [his replacement] until everything is final,” said the Jakarta Governor today at City Hall.
Meanwhile, Gerindra Deputy Chairman Fadli Zon said that Sandiaga Uno has emerged in the list of preferable vice presidential candidates for Gerindra Chairman Prabowo Subianto.
Roughly one week ago, the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) director of the presidential candidacy Suhud Alynuddin, said that Prabowo himself offered to submit Sandiaga Uno as a candidate to PKS leaders.
