Gerindra Accepts PKS` Coalition Deal in Facing 2019 Election

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Gerindra Deputy Chairman Fadli Zon stated that the party is prepared to accept any requirements asked by the Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) in the 2019 presidential election coalition deal.

According to Fadli Zon, one of PKS’ requirements is about the candidate for Prabowo Subianto's running mate. However, Fadli said that from the nine candidates offered by PKS, there has been no further discussion upon who the person will be despite their positive credibility.

Previously, according to House of Representatives (DPR) Deputy Chief Fahri Hamzah, out of the nine names offered by PKS, Anies Matta is considered to be the strongest and has the potential to mobilize voters in the following general elections.

Furthermore, Fadli suggested that the final decision will heavily depend on the political dynamics during the final moments of the presidential and vice presidential registration period.

“We’ll see. The candidate will depend on the person’s electability and acceptability,” said Fadli.

Earlier, PKS announced their readiness to open a coalition with Gerindra in supporting Prabowo Subianto as their presidential candidate. However, this deal requires Gerindra to choose one of the nine candidates offered by PKS as Prabowo’s running mate.
