TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Chairman of the Great Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra) Prabowo Subianto, said that the Prosperity and Justice Party (PKS) has a special relationship with Gerindra. According to Prabowo, PKS is Gerindra’s best friend.
"During tough times, PKS did not want to leave me and Gerindra," Prabowo said at the Gerindra Central Executive Board office on Sunday, April 21, 2018. Therefore, it is difficult for Gerindra to leave PKS.
During PKS's 20th anniversary event, Prabowo hoped that the relationship between both parties can continue to save the future of Indonesia.
Prabowo admitted that he had learned so much from PKS in establishing Gerindra.
"I'll tell you a secret, when I am leading Gerindra I often copied PKS's system, like its cadre system," Prabowo said.
PKS President Sohibul Iman said that the best friend title will mean even more if it can be proven through cooperation between PKS and Gerindra.
"What's more important is we prove it in a cooperation and together prove a contribution," Sohibul said.
