TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Jokowi’s campaign team (TKN) spokesman, Ace Hasan Syadzily, suspects that Prabowo Subianto’s foreign political campaign consultant is involved once again in the 2019 presidential election.
Hasan suspects that Rob Allyn is with Prabowo’s side based on digital footprints and Rob’s confession of being a part of Prabowo Subianto’s campaign team in the 2014 presidential election while Prabowo was paired with Hatta.
“Rob Allyn’s trace isn’t just in the 2014 presidential election but is strongly indicated to be hired again in the 2019 election by Prabowo’s camp,” said Ace Hasan when Tempo reached him today.
He further supports his claim through a link to the Australian National University's (ANU) Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs website in order to explain what he called ‘digital footprint’.
Not only that, Rob Allyn once revealed his involvement in the 2012 gubernatorial election by claiming to have helped Jokowi – Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama in terms of TV advertisements.
The website asiapacific.anu.edu.au published a piece by Allyn on July 2014 where he denies being the brainchild of a black campaign to help elect Prabowo Subianto in the election. He maintains that such accusations are mere conspiracy theories and he exclusively handled TV advertisements.
