The incumbent Governor of Jakarta Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama is actively seeking the endorsement of the ruling party PDI-P, even though he has already been officially endorsed by Golkar, Hanura, and Nasdem. Yesterday (August 17), the Governor told the press that he had met with PDI-P Chairwoman Megawati Soekarnoputri and that the latter had said that she’d endorse the former. Ahok also said that Megawati would only endorse the Governor if he’d keep Djarot Syaiful Hidayat, who is also a PDI-P politician, as his vice governor. To subscribe please click here
