TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The communication between Greater Indonesia Movement (Gerindra) Party Chief Prabowo Subianto and President-elect Joko Widodo (Jokowi) prioritizes the concept of future development instead of the post the party would get if it joins the government. This statement was made by the party spokesman.

"Although we got nothing, the important point is that we can still offer inputs to the government to promote the economy. That is far more important. Concept is more important than people or post," Chief of the Gerindra Party Executive Board Edhy Prabowo stated in Jakarta on Saturday.

The communication between Prabowo and Jokowi was related to detailed matters. Their discussion did not cover ministerial posts since concept held greater weightage than posts, he remarked.

All party decisions rest with Prabowo, as the party's chief of patron and general chairman. All cadres comply with the decisions, he noted.

"In Gerindra, the most important aspect is the stand of the party's general chairman. We are ready to implement all his instructions," he stated.

Prabowo noted that if Gerindra remains outside the government, it will always offer inputs to the Jokowi-Ma'ruf administration.

However, he emphasized that if Gerindra is requested to join the government, it would remain critical to voice the truth instead of appeasing the leadership.
