3 Benefits Prabowo would Gain by Choosing AHY as a Running Mate

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Researcher at the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) Syamsyudin Haris said that Gerindra Chairman Prabowo Subianto will most likely profit from picking Agus ‘AHY’ Harimurti Yudhoyono as his running mate for the 2019 presidential election.

Syamsyudin provided the three reasons why:

1. Electability

Syamsyudin said that the electability rate of AHY is higher compared to the rest of the names that have been linked to be Prabowo’s running mate, which a LIPI research stated that AHY has 3.1 percent electability. “It would tend to profit Prabowo,” he said.

2. AHY interacts with young people

It is widely considered to be more reachable by young voters of millennials, which in theory can make the Prabowo-AHY combo be the perfect pair to reach out to society. “It would be equally older people if Prabowo is paired with Salim Segaf,” said Syamsyudin.

3. Logistics

This third factor is the a crucial one according to Syamsyudin. He said that by appointing AHY as Prabowo’s running mate will help Gerindra strengthen its logistical power. “Logistical backing is the important element next in line, and is safer than [appointing] Salim Segaf,” said the LIPI researcher.
