    TEMPO.CO, Solo - The Prabowo - Sandiaga campaign team is setting up a base in Solo, Central Java. Again, the post is being set up near the private home of their rival, incumbent Joko Widodo (Jokowi), in Sumber.

    The base camp is only located 450 meters away from Jokowi's home.

    "The proximity is just a coincidence," Purnawirawan Pejuang Indonesia Raya (PPIR) coordinator for Solo area, Sukadi, said on Thursday, January 10.

    According to Sukadi, many cadres and volunteers have offered their homes to be turned into a campaign post. In total, more than 10 places were offered.

    "Just so happens, this place is the most-ready," he said.

    The home-office building will be officially launched as a campaign post tomorrow, January 11.

    The Prabowo camp has also established a base in Klodran, Karanganyar. The huge building, used as a national secretariat, is located just 1.1 kilometers from Jokowi's residence.
