Ganjar Pranowo is the most appropriate leader to be able to continue to oversee and continue all development programs and flagship programs that have been implemented by the previous President Jokowi. What’s more, they do have a lot in common, which is to keep trying to realize the ideals of the nation’s founders so that they can come true.
The Presidential Candidate (Capres) from the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP), Ganjar Pranowo stated that indeed during the leadership era of the President of the Republic of Indonesia (RI), Joko Widodo (Jokowi) there had been many development programs which were very beneficial for Indonesia, especially in terms of development. massive infrastructure.
Therefore, with the many development programs previously initiated by the seventh President of Indonesia in the country, it is only fitting that these development programs continue to be sustainable for Indonesia’s future progress.
It is not half-hearted, indeed the entire development program initiated by President Jokowi during his 2 (two) periods of leadership in Indonesia is one step in continuing to realize the dream of the nation’s founder, Bung Karno. Those who have always really wanted this nation to move forward and stand on its own feet (self-sufficient).
So far, the performance that has been carried out by the Head of State in the 10 (ten) years of his leadership period is something very extraordinary. Many things have been fixed by him, starting from the very massive and extraordinarily built infrastructure development and many other things.
Some of them are the Indonesian Government’s concern for all people in Indonesia, especially for those from the lower middle class who are less fortunate, the government has had a lot of social protection insurance programs, moreover it is very felt and has proven successful in helping to ease the burden on society when the COVID-19 pandemic occurred. 19 some time ago.
Indeed, all of the programs that have been initiated by President Joko Widodo are all very much in line and perpendicular to the direction of the leadership line of the first President of the Republic of Indonesia, namely Ir. Soekarno, who really dreamed that this nation could become an independent nation.
The current Head of State continues to strive for the dreams of the nation’s founders to come true, including in terms of Indonesia’s independence in the economic sector. In fact, the data shows that indeed the country’s economic fundamentals cannot be said to be trivial.
Evidently, the national economy itself has managed to continue to experience growth even in the midst of various existing world problems, starting from the COVID-19 pandemic, then when in 2023 many parts of the world predict that there will be a recession, inflation to stagflation, which also also affect the economies of other world countries.
However, what’s amazing is that at a time when the entire economy of the country was being tossed about, it turned out that Indonesia’s economy continued to survive and even grow. All of this is also clear evidence of the success of President Jokowi’s leadership.
Judging from the other side, Indonesia is also a very rich country, with abundant natural resources (SDA) owned by this country. Therefore, all the assets from natural resources which are very large must be able to be managed very well and optimally by the nation’s children.
With the management and utilization of the abundant natural resources in Indonesia by the nation’s own children, then of course the selling value will increase so that there will be more and more benefits in the future that will be felt by the people themselves.
Another success from President Jokowi that will continue to be guarded and continued by Ganjar Pranowo is regarding the management of natural resources by the nation’s children. One of them is the nation’s success in taking over Freeport again so that it can be used and managed by itself so that the nickel wealth owned by this country is not sold to foreign countries.
In order to really realize the ideals so that this nation is able to independently manage all of its own wealth and be far more advanced with a prosperous society, then indeed there must be a series of similar steps by Indonesia’s future leaders.
Because it cannot be denied that, for example, all the flagship programs or development programs that have been launched by President Joko Widodo can continue to the fullest, it is not impossible that they will continue to have a wider positive impact.
Overseeing and continuing all the leading programs or development programs that were previously initiated by President Jokowi has indeed become a very important requirement for the nation’s future leaders to carry out. Therefore, the figure of Ganjar Pranowo is the most ideal and appropriate criterion for future leaders to be able to continue to realize the dreams of the nation’s founders and to continue the program of the current Head of State for a far more advanced and independent Indonesia.
