TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Prabowo - Sandiaga campaign team held a brief press conference before the presidential hopeful’s residence on Jalan Kertanegara 4, Kebayoran Baru, South Jakarta. This was the second session established today afternoon with a span of 15 minutes from the previous one.
The campaign team spokesman Dahnil Anzar Simanjuntak said that the Gerindra Party chief patron appealed to all supporters in the grassroots to remain calm and not fall for provocation.
“We have heard there is a clash in a region, in Madura. We hope, all supporters must maintain calmness as we do here. Do not commit any anarchism act,” said Dahnil on Wednesday, April 17.
The former deputy head of Muhammadiyah Youth Association stopped short of detailing Madura’s incident. However, Prabowo alerted all supporters to as close as possible oversee the voting calculation that is still on progress.
“Even if there is a fact of unfair incident, keep behaving on the legal corridor. So keep calm, relax, and smiling or dance if necessary. Face it with a smile,” Dahnil underlined.
Dahnil further suggested all not to be provoked by circulated information, including the result of quick counts that showed the winning of Jokowi - Ma’ruf Amin. He claimed the exit poll data they obtained revealed the candidate number 02 bested the incumbent with 55.4 percent of votes in Indonesia elections 2019.
“These messages are from Prabowo. Don’t get fed up by hoax information and be mad. Several parties wait for such acts. If you are mad and commit anarchism, that will annul our victory,” Dahnil concluded.
