Gerindra, the second largest political party in Jakarta, has reportedly decided to endorse retired Army general Sjafrie Sjamsoeddin as their governor candidate to challenge the incumbent Governor of Jakarta Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama, who will enter next year’s gubernatorial election as an independent candidate.
