PKS: Democrat Offers Third Political Axis

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - President of the Prosperity and Justice Party (PKS) Sohibul Iman stated that his party has been offered to be the third political axis to run in the 2019 presidential election. The option was conveyed by Democrat Party through its Deputy Chairman Sjarifuddin Hasan in a meeting that took place at PKS central executive board office at Jl. TB. Simatupang, Jakarta on Friday, April 20, 2018.

"Mr. Sjarif said that minutes of the meeting will be delivered to SBY and will be followed up. SBY also wants to meet me, I'll wait for it," said Sohibul.

Sohibul said that his party considered that forming the third axis would be a good choice because currently only two candidates have declared to participate in the 2019 presidential election which might spark social segregation among the community.

According to Sohibul, it is possible to present a third alternative for the presidential bid should five opposition parties to the incumbent candidate President Joko Widodo namely Gerindra, PKS, Democrat, National Mandate Party (PAN), and National Awakening Party (PKB) can come to an agreement.

Furthermore, Sohibul asserted that the meeting with Democrat party with regard to the third political axis was not a threat for Gerindra Party to choose PKS candidates as Prabowo's running mate in the election.
