“Everything was discussed,” he said shortly at Plaza Selatan Monas, Central Jakarta, Monday, September 19, 2022.

As widely reported, the former education minister recently asserted his readiness to run for president in the 2024 general elections and is open to any political party willing to facilitate the run.

A member of the Jakarta Legislative Council (DPRD) from the Democratic Party, Mujiyono, uploaded a photo of Anies with three party leaders and 10th and 12th Vice President Jusuf Kalla. Leaders of the three parties were PKS President Ahmad Syaikhu, Chairman of the NasDem Party Surya Paloh, and Chairman of the Democratic Party Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono (AHY). 

Anies also said that affairs related to the presidential election should be asked to political parties. He claimed he just attended the wedding reception of the daughter of a DPR member from the NasDem Party, Sugeng Suparwoto.
