JAKARTADAILY.ID - West Java Governor Ridwan Kamil has stated that he will express support to anyone elected as the Indonesian president in Presidential Election 2024.
Kamil’s statement is also due to his name which has been included as one of the top 5 figures with the highest electibility rate back in 2021. Starting off as a rumor, Kamil would then confirm his participation in the competition against other strong contenders.
He is set to compete against fellow active-duty politicians, big names, such as Ganjar Pranowo, Prabowo Subianto, Anies Baswedan and other political elites of the capital city.
Kamil claimed that his electability is proportional to his performance as a governor. His name is consistent in the top 5 on various electability research results. He would later continue that his electability results are a reflection of his work.
“So the thing is, a leader must be able to adapt,” Kamil said and translated from Akbar Faizal Uncensored’s Youtube Channel on Sunday (January 30, 2022). He then added that he spoke his vocabulary and adjusted based on the audience.
Kamil revealed that he will support whoever wins in the presidential election. He continued by explaining his own dreams of ‘practical politics of democracy’. “The moment when we compete, we will hit each other, we will smash and et cetera. After someone wins, we shake hands and drink coffee together,” Kamil said while speaking with Faizal.
