TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The supporters of the incumbent candidate Joko `Jokowi` Widodo have started to create teams in a bid to succeed the Jokowi-Ma`ruf Amin pair in the 2019 Presidential Election. In Yogyakarta, the Jokowi team would be established from the grassroots level of RT/RW (neighborhood association).
“First, we will immediately establish the structure board for the Jokowi Defenders Team or Tim Pembela Jokowi (TPJ) up to the level of RT/RW within this two weeks,” said the head of Jokowi Secretariat National (Seknas) presidium, Fachim Fahmi, in Yogyakarta, Friday, August 10.
The team would monitor the opposition party that spreading hoax news or conducting a black campaign against Jokowi-Ma’ruf pair. “We will actively monitor which party harasses and insults Jokowi-Ma’rauf Amin,” he added.
However, Jokowi Seknas perceived that campaigns related to SARA issue in the election next year would not as massive as previous elections considering the incumbent candidate chose Ma’ruf Amin who represented the ulemas.
Fachim Fahmi said the Jokowi team in Yogyakarta would fully support the success of Jokowi-Ma’ruf Amin pair. “We will disseminate the success of Jokowi to all communities,” he added.
