Indonesia Elections 2024: From contentious figure to crowd magnet, VP candidate Gibran expands Prabowo’s reach, appeal

Even though Mr. Gibran made an effort to shake hands with everyone, it was difficult to tell if he was enjoying the attention. When people yelled his name, he was generally silent with hardly a smile on his face. Additionally, Mr. Gibran disregarded requests for a brief interview from investigators following his campaign road that morning.

When other people were on phase, the vice presidential candidate generally kept to himself, silently watching as additional politicians seated around him were mingling and chatting with one another.

But when it was day for him to speak, Mr. Gibran went from being a reserved speaker to an animated orator.

” I appreciate you coming. Before introducing the card’s main programs, he said,” The citizens of Banyuwangi have been very kind,” to the cheers and loud applause of his adoring supporters.

When Mr. Gibran faced off against Muhaimin and Mahfud in a vice-presidential conversation on December 22, the same assurance was displayed. When his foes grilled or attacked him, Mr. Gibran was able to clearly convey the couple’s vision and delivered some counterpunches.

The discussion demonstrated that Mr. Gibran had much more to offer than just his junior and ties to the current president, according to Mdm Istifadah, who goes by a different name.

” I was awestruck. The 47-year-old treat vendor, who visited the vice-presidential candidate at the aerobics event, expressed her hope that he develops into a good leader who can accept everyone.

The Jakarta-based Center for Strategic and International Studies ‘ Mr. Arya Fernandes agreed. &nbsp,

” His efficiency at the vice presidential debate on December 22 exceeded everyone’s anticipations.” The social expert told CNA that he was quite impressive and demonstrated his familiarity with the most recent troubles.

However, the journalist claimed that convincing the public that he is “vice-presidential material” requires much more.

” He has been attempting to demonstrate that he is a deserving member and not just the son of the president.” But Mr. Arya said it’s difficult to get rid of this picture. &nbsp,

One thing that might not persuade people that Mr. Gibran is himself a notable chief is his ignorance and lack of political accomplishment.

Solo’s development was largely the result of his parents and F. X. Rudy. He said, referring to Fransiskus Xaverius Hadi Rudyatmo, Mr. Jokowi’s son as governor,” Gibran was just continuing what they have done.”
