A local media outlet in the Banten province reported about the possibility of PDI-P and Golkar re-entering into a coalition, by pairing the incumbent Governor Rano Karno, who is a PDI-P politician, with the son of former Banten Governor Ratu Atut Chosiyah Andika Hazrumy, who Golkar had names as their gubernatorial candidate. But at the same time, there’s been other reports that the incumbent might end up running with someone else, while Golkar may enter into a coalition with the Democratic Party by pairing Andika with Wahidin Halim—the latter was the runner up in the previous gubernatorial election. And so it appears that the speculations are focused on said three names. It’s clear that PDI-P and Golkar, the two major political parties in the province, will determine the political constellation and the number of pair of candidates that’ll be able to compete in the race.To subscribe please click here
