The Chairman of the opposition Gerindra Party Lt. Gen. (ret) Prabowo Subianto announced the name of the Party’s governor candidate for West Java’s 2018 gubernatorial election. He’s Maj. Gen. (ret) Sudrajat, who is also Prabowo’s supporter in the 2014 presidential race. The question now is whether Sudrajat can enter the race at all. Note that Gerindra cannot endorse a governor candidate on their own. They simply do not have enough seats in the regional representative council of West Java to pass the nomination threshold.To subscribe please click here
