"We are ready. So Pak Airlangga can win the upcoming presidential race," North Sulawesi Golkar Chairman Tetty Paruntu said at the Golkar’s Tenth National Congress at the Hotel Ritz Carlton Jakarta on Wednesday, December 4, 2019.
North Sumatra Golkar Chairman Ahmad Doli Kurnia also proposed the same thing. He wants Airlangga to step forward as a presidential candidate.
"The congress recommends that Golkar has a candidate for the Presidential Election in 2024. We will prioritize our Chairperson, Airlangga Hartarto," Doli said.
Gorontalo Golkar chairman Ruslie Habibie said Golkar must start to determine its candidates for the 2024 elections. He stressed that the party should no longer support candidates from other parties.
"We will try to make him (Airlangga) a candidate for president in 2024," Ruslie said.
Golkar’s Tenth National Congress will be held from December 3-6, 2019. One of their agendas was to elect Golkar’s Chairperson for the 2019-2024 period.
