Before entering politics, he continued, Sohibul Iman was known as a technocrat and Muslim scholar. He was involved in the technology sector at the Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT). “He is a blend of a skilled bureaucrat, a capable politician, and a respected intellectual in the educational field,” stated Mabruri.

Adi Prayitno stated that the current conditions and situation are still very dynamic, considering that the Pilkada is still six months away. Therefore, it is natural for political leaders to still be deliberating potential names to nominate. However, based on current survey data, there are only two major names. “Anies is still the strongest, closely followed by RK,” he said, as quoted on Saturday (8/6/2024). Other names, although appearing in surveys, are still not competitive enough to contend with Anies Baswedan or RK. “If a name like Anies can run, the only suitable opponent is RK. Other names are not yet competitive,” Adi said.

Furthermore, HNW disclosed that potential PKS cadres to be Anies’s deputy include PKS DKI Jakarta DPW Chair Khoirudin, PKS elected DPR RI member candidates, and Gamal Albinsaid. “However, all of this is still fluid, and the PKS DPP is still observing all developments to make a decision soon,” he stated.

This was directly conveyed by Golkar’s leader, Hartarto Airlangga, after observing Eid al-Adha prayers at the Golkar DPP mosque, Monday. “In the Solo Pilkada, the daughter of Akbar Tanjung will be prepared by the Golkar Party, Krisnauli Tanjung, who is also young,” A. Hartarto told reporters. Sekar is currently the Chairwoman of the Solo Regional Leadership Council (DPD) of the Golkar Party. She is set to run in the Solo Pilkada to replace the eldest son of President Joko Widodo, G. Rakabuming Raka, who has been selected as VP for the next five years. Golkar is optimistic in nominating A. Tanjung’s youngest. During her career, Sekar had a stint in journalism at ABC network in 2017. In 2019, she became part of the campaign team for Subianto and Uno.

Hasyim also reasoned that increasing the number of voters per TPS would simplify data entry by merging voters from two TPS into one. “The figure of 600 is aimed at making it easier to design the number of TPS, thus facilitating regrouping or data collection since two TPS become one,” he assured.

**PKS Offered Deputy Governor Position with Ridwan Kamil** PKS President Ahmad Syaikhu admitted that he received an offer for the deputy gubernatorial position to accompany Ridwan Kamil (RK) in the 2024 Jakarta Pilkada. The offer came from the Indonesian Forward Coalition (KIM) supporting Prabowo-Gibran in the 2024 Presidential Election. “There is that offer, which is why we are analyzing and considering what makes the most sense,” stated Syaikhu during an interview at the PKS DPP office, Jakarta, on Tuesday. However, regarding who PKS will support, Syaikhu said it is not yet final. He mentioned that communication with other parties for the Jakarta Pilkada is still ongoing. “We are continuously communicating to decide who will support Mr. Anies Rasyid Baswedan along with other parties. Therefore, communication with other parties is not yet final,” he said. Syaikhu mentioned that communication is being conducted with many parties, not just KIM.

Intensive communication continues with their coalition in the 2024 Presidential Election, namely the Change Coalition.

**PKS to Invite PDIP to Support Anies-Sohibul Iman Pair** Additionally, Syaikhu mentioned that PKS is also open to forming a coalition with PDIP to jointly nominate the Anies Baswedan-Sohibul Iman duo in the 2024 Jakarta Pilkada. “Yes, it is very possible (a coalition with PDIP) if we invite other parties to nominate this pair,” said Syaikhu. However, Syaikhu admitted that he has not yet communicated with PDIP regarding the Jakarta Pilkada. “I haven’t talked officially,” he said. Even so, Syaikhu emphasized that his party will first fight for the Anies and PKS internal cadre Sohibul Iman pair for the Jakarta Pilkada. “Insyaallah, this (Anies-Sohibul Iman) is what we will fight for until registration at KPUD,” stated Syaikhu.

**Sohibul Iman Not at the Same Level as Anies and Ridwan Kamil** According to Jamiluddin, Sohibul Iman is not a suitable choice for the Jakarta gubernatorial race. His popularity and electability are far below the names that have already surfaced, especially Anies Baswedan and Ridwan Kamil. This can be seen from several survey institutions that have released their results. “Given that Sohibul Iman does not yet have electability, his market value is very low on paper. Therefore, Sohibul Iman is not a worthy opponent for Anies Baswedan,” stated Jamil. “Comparing Sohibul Iman with Anies in the Jakarta Pilgub is like comparing night and day. Sohibul Iman’s level is not comparable to Anies’s level,” Jamil added. Jamil believes that PKS is very daring if they truly propose Sohibul Iman as the 2024 Jakarta gubernatorial candidate. Although Jamil acknowledges Sohibul Iman’s proven political career and loyalty to the party, his popularity and electability are hurdles if forced to run as Jakarta gubernatorial candidate. “Therefore, he is not suitable to be proposed as a gubernatorial candidate. PKS’s party machinery does not seem capable of significantly boosting Sohibul Iman’s popularity and electability. It will be very difficult to even approach Anies Baswedan and Ridwan Kamil’s popularity and electability,” said Jamil. “PKS is too confident and daring without considering its cadre’s capacity to win in the Jakarta Pilkada,” Jamil stated.
