Human rights activist Natalius Pigai said that Anies Baswedan was a figure who would be supported by the NasDem Party to run as a presidential candidate in 2024.
Anies Baswedan was the most recommended by the NasDem Regional Leadership Council (DPW) during the Surya Paloh party’s National Working Meeting (Rakernas).
Anies Baswedan was elected 32 out of 34 DPW NasDem.
It was noted that only East Kalimantan and West Papua did not propose the name Anies Baswedan.
Instead of announcing the name Anies Baswedan as the figure to be carried by NasDem, Surya Paloh actually announced three candidates for the 2024 presidential candidate.
Anies also had to compete with two other names, namely Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo and TNI Commander General Andika Perkasa.
According to Pigai, the general chairman of the NasDem Party, Surya Paloh, is a great politician.
The main objective of Nasdem is to increase the votes because the presidential candidate must enter the top 3 in parliament, so if he chooses,
Ganjar Pranowo has a voice base in PDIP so it is impossible for them to switch to Nasdem if Andika and then Nasdem don’t get many votes.
and Anies has a lot of supporters, he doesn’t have a party either, so Nasdem appoints Anies to the NasDem Vote Getter,
Pigai said in a statement received by the Tribune on Sunday (6/19/2022).
Surya Paloh’s decision to cast Anies is a realistic move.
Another goal is to get big votes for NasDem in Pileg 2024.
Pigai also revealed that it was Anies Baswedan who gave the National Democratic organization its name and designed its logo.
“One thing people don’t know is that the National Democratic Name (Nasdem) and the party symbol were designed by Anies Baswedan.
And the most important is Surya Paloh, Jusuf Kalah has the same or similar Political Passion as Mr. Anies is Jusuf Kalla’s junior and cadre.
That is the reason why Mr. Surya Paloh will choose Anies Baswedan,” he said.
