Gibran Rakabuming Raka asked his supporters to always be positive regarding all slander, sarcasm and negative statements against him, who is currently the vice presidential candidate (bacawapres).
The eldest son of President Joko Widodo or Jokowi conveyed this message while consolidating the Advanced Indonesia Coalition (KIM) in Bandarlampung, Saturday (11/11/2023).
“Ladies and gentlemen, just be brief with me. Nowadays, there are a lot of attacks, slander, sarcasm and negative ‘statements’, just smile, no need to fight, counter, just smile,” he said as quoted by Antara.
Apart from that, he also reminded his supporters to work even harder in winning the 2024 Presidential Election, even though currently a number of survey institutions have stated that the electability of the Prabowo-Gibran pair is higher than other candidates.
“If you see or read releases from survey institutions, if it’s bad it means you have to work hard again. If it’s good, but all the survey figures are all good, then we have to work hard too,” he said.
Not only that, he also said that the fight in the presidential election this time would be short.
However, he believes with the enthusiasm of his supporters that Prabowo-Gibran will win one round.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I am confident that we can win 1 round. We will continue to monitor the numbers, continue to monitor the grassroots movement at the bottom, will continue to socialize Prabowo-Gibran’s vision, mission and programs and ensure that in Lampung the numbers are highest high,” he said.
Furthermore, Gibran hopes that his supporters will not be careless and continue to widen the winning distance.
“Continue to work hard, continue to go out to the residents, ‘door to door’, once again we are all here to win one round,” he said.
