jateng.INDONESIATODAY.CO.ID, SOLO – Hundreds of people calling themselves PKB Merah have expressed their rejection of the coalition led by Muhaimin Iskandar and the PKS in the 2024 presidential election.
The reason they rejected the coalition was because the two parties had different ideologies.
“PKB was born from the NU and of course its ideology also follows the NU. For us, the coalition with the PKS is not suitable,” said PKB Merah coordinator Budi Santoso in Solo on Wednesday (6/15).

Budi emphasized that the PKB-PKS coalition is against the spiritual situation of all loyal cadres at the grassroots level.
“Well, if the PKB and PKS coalition continues, we are worried that loyal voters will even leave the PKB,” he said.
Budi explained that PKB Merah was formed as a representation of loyal PKB voters from Solo, Madiun, Jakarta, Surabaya, Semarang, Klaten, Karanganyar and Garut.

The aspirations developed by the PKB Merah, he continued, would be taken directly to Jakarta and sent to the PKB DPP to request that party elites consider the aspirations of loyal voters.
“Later, Red PKB will also be formed in other areas, for now we focus on Solo, Madiun, Surabaya, Semarang, Klaten, Karanganyar and Garut. We will bring all the aspirations to Jakarta and present them to the PKB DPP,” he said.
