Ganjar Pranowo is a leader who is known to be very innovative. In fact, he has won awards several times nationally in the category of innovative leaders. Then, he is also a figure who is very capable of keeping abreast of progress and developments in the midst of the rapid use of digital space as it is today.
The Presidential Candidate (Capres) from the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP), Ganjar Pranowo revealed that the millennial generation and also generation Z are indeed potential voters, because they represent up to more than 50% (percent) of the number of voters in a democratic party and political contestation, General Election (Election) in 2024.
For information, Generation Z is the generation born between 1997 and 2012, where they are currently aged 8 to 23 years. Then for the millennial generation itself is the generation born in 1981 to 1996 with their current age range being 24 to 39 years.
Furthermore, the man who also serves as Governor of Central Java (Central Java) explained a recent research result, which revealed that it turns out that the two generations, namely the millennial generation and generation Z, do have different characteristics. Nevertheless, the two generations also have one thing in common, namely they both do not like polemics that occur in the world of politics.
The two generations, both the millennial generation and generation Z, don’t always like noisy politics, and they also don’t want to get too involved with big issues, but they are actually still willing to be invited to dialogue and also have an egalitarian character. which is strong enough.
Knowing how willing the millennial generation and generation Z are to be invited to dialogue, Ganjar Pranowo explained that dialogue is indeed a very important thing to do, especially dialogue with tolerant themes and can also continue to provide space for the two generations. to be on the same frequency and on the same stage.
From the results of the latest research, this leader who is known to be very innovative and creative will continue to put forward various appropriate strategies to be able to approach the millennial generation and generation Z.
One of the right approaches or strategies that he takes is to continue to utilize digital space in order to continue to campaign for the values he will fight for. Because basically, if the approach taken to the two generations is just through face-to-face meetings, it is still not enough even though direct meetings are also very important because they are able to foster a different emotional bonding atmosphere.
Although having face-to-face meetings is also very important, which is a conventional political campaign strategy, according to Ganjar Pranowo, it is no less important to have a strategy through ‘air attacks’ or optimal utilization of digital space.
Meanwhile, the figure of the presidential candidate who is carried by the party bearing the logo of a bull with a white muzzle has also won several Government Awards that have named him an Indonesian Innovative Leader or an innovative leader in Indonesia.
It is known that the award is indeed given to any leader or regional head who is considered very successful in carrying out various kinds of innovations in management and development in their area. The reason is, a leader who has a very high power of innovation is also very important for Indonesia, because it cannot be denied that this country’s development also depends on how development is in the region, especially in rural areas.
Moreover, Indonesia will soon be holding a big event, namely the Presidential Election in 2024, so it is also important for all people in the country to be able to see, choose and consider who are the figures who are considered very worthy to lead this nation in the future. which also should be an innovative figure.
Ganjar Pranowo himself is widely known as a very creative national leader and he is also considered to have many innovations. Some of the innovations that have been successfully carried out by him are the implementation of e-government, an electronic-based government system and continuing to encourage innovative village government.
With all the innovations and creativity that were successfully carried out by the PDI Perjuangan presidential candidate, then they were also able to have a direct impact on reducing the poverty rate and further advancing the region he leads, namely Central Java.
It is important for the people in Indonesia at this time to know and properly evaluate the character of a future leader who will lead this nation in 2024. One of the criteria for a good leader is when he has a high power of innovation, is creative and is also able to to keep abreast of current developments, which are wholly owned by Ganjar Pranowo.
