“I really appreciate the decision of the PDIP Ketum Megawati who has just announced the PDIP presidential candidate Ganjar Pranowo,” said President Jokowi.
Furthermore, according to President Jokowi, Ganjar is a leader who is close to the people, down to the bottom and very ideological.
“The change in leadership must not divert the sustainability of the nation’s program, the state ideology Pancasila, and unity must be the foundation,” said the President.
According to him, Indonesia-centric must also be the foundation and the spirit of the 2024 Presidential Election is the spirit of program contestation.
“I believe the Indonesian people are getting more mature. Hopefully the 2024 Presidential Election will be smooth, peaceful and safe. The new leader must bring Indonesia forward, just and prosperous,” President Jokowi concluded.

Ganjar Pranowo asked all party components to provide support and criticism, “One For All, All For One”.
“I am entrusted by Madam Ketum, I will try my best. I was trained in this party and always carried out all my duties like Bung Karno as a political thinker that reached the bottom,” said Ganjar.
“I thank President Jokowi because I am an extension of his hand in the region, and he has the courage to push Indonesia forward, politically sovereign and economically independent,” he concluded.
