NBCNEWS – Director of Indonesian Civil Society (Lima Indonesia) Ray Rangkuti gave an analysis related to the statement of Deputy General Chairperson of Golkar, Nurdin Halid.
Because, as previously known, Nurdin Halid revealed that he plans to accommodate the Governor of Central Java Ganjar Pranowo if the PDIP does not use it.
“In the current direct election system, the popularity and electability factors are number one. Ganjar has that,” said Ray to NBCNEWS, Wednesday (17/11).

In addition, Ganjar’s popularity and electability are still skyrocketing. He considered that even Airlangga Hartarto could not compete with Ganjar.
“Even now Ganjar is starting to leave Prabowo as another rival name. Let alone RI 1, RI 2 is difficult for Airlangga,” he said.

Therefore, according to Ray, Golkar really hopes that Ganjar can be carried if the PDIP does not need it. Given, the electability is not in doubt.
“Ganjar’s name is likely to continue to soar, especially since there are still two years to the presidential election,” he said.
On the other hand, the Executive Director of Oversight of Indonesia Democratic Policy, Satyo Purwanto, believes that Golkar has a keen eye because it is willing to accommodate the Governor of Central Java, Ganjar Pranowo.
