The ruling party PDI-P has not yet decided on who they will endorse in Jakarta’s 2017 gubernatorial election. The Secretary General of PDI-P Hasto Kristiyanto, however, recently said that PDI-P was aware that the gubernatorial election would affect the presidential election. He mentioned Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s successful leadership in 2012-2014 as an example. At that time, Jokowi, who was endorsed by PDI-P, won the 2012 Jakarta gubernatorial election. Two years later, PDI-P nominated him as their presidential candidate and Jokowi won the presidency. What did Hasto mean to say?To subscribe please click here
