TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) politician Mardani Ali Sera believes Gerindra Party Chairman Prabowo Subianto should prepare a strategic strategy if he wants to compete with Joko Widodo (Jokowi) electability. "Otherwise, Jokowi has a strong position," said Mardani in Cikini, Jakarta, on Saturday.
Mardani said Jokowi has more advantages that can boost his electability compared with Prabowo. Jokowi is not only able to sell promises when campaigning. "But he already has worked."
Jokowi’s power is also obtained from a number of surveys that position his electability above Prabowo so the data can also affect the people’s voice.
"Right now, the most important is the figure," he said.
He suggested Prabowo choose a new vice presidential candidate. The new figure should really be able to compete with Jokowi’s electability.
Mardani suggested Prabowo that in the near future to not only appoint a vice-presidential candidate who will accompany him in the 2019 presidential election. Prabowo must also determine the ranks of the cabinet that will help him if he is elected as president.
"So people do not buy a cat in a sack," he said.
