„One thing to watch out for in every democratic event amid the rapid digitalization and social media is the susceptibility to the spread of hoaxes and hate speech with ethnic, religious, racial, and inter-group (SARA) nuances, which have the potential to create polarization that can divide the unity of society,“ said Edy in Palangka Raya, quoted from Antara, Friday (June 21, 2024) .

Anies Baswedan only gave a slight smile when he learned of the allegations of Jokowi’s intervention. He did not want to give further comments on the matter. „All processes are still in progress, just let it flow,“ Baswedan said when interviewed after joining a gathering with the DKI Jakarta Pemuda Pancasila MPW in Pejaten, South Jakarta, on June 19, 2024. Furthermore, Baswedan said that he currently gives importance to issues related to the prosperity of Jakarta residents over other matters. „For us, the chief matter is the well-being of Jakarta residents. It’s not about who will be the running mate, that’s not the point, and the process is still long, just let it flow,“ Baswedan said. Earlier, the Chairman of the DPP PDI Perjuangan, Djarot S., considered that there were evidences that President Jokowi would be involved again in the 2024 local elections. Reacting to Jokowi’s Intention to Distribute Aid Before Pilkada This was concerning President Joko Widodo’s intention to continue handing out welfare assistance in the form of rice until December 2024. „We not only sense interference but witness it plainly and openly, in Javanese it’s cetho welo-welo,“ said Djarot Saiful Hidayat at the Head Office of PDI Perjuangan, Jalan Diponegoro, Jakarta, on Thursday (16/5/2024). „Meaning, the intervention is very clear, very visible. It’s very apparent,“ he added. Djarot stressed that the extension of social assistance until December constitutes an overreach. PDI-P Asks Electoral Commission and Oversight Agency to Address the Issue Therefore, the Perjuangan Party asked the Election Commission (KPU) and the Electoral Supervisory Agency to address these indications. Hidayat desires that the misuse of power by President Joko Widodo, which occurred during the 2024 Presidential race, will not be replicated in the 2024 local elections. „We really request the polling organizers, to thoroughly monitor. Including the media and the youth. Especially since the bansos will be continued until December,“ he emphasized.

„So, it is very understandable if journalists are concerned about their safety during political coverage such as elections and Pilkada. Therefore, the Safe Journalism Program of Yayasan TIFA urges Pilkada organizers and other stakeholders to pay attention to this. If possible, anticipate the simultaneous Pilkada this year, which includes 508 elections,“ said Oslan

Previously, PDIP DPP Chairman Said Abdullah admitted that he had visited Cak Imin’s residence to discuss cooperation in the Jakarta Pilkada. Said mentioned that PKB is already set on nominating Anies Baswedan for the Jakarta gubernatorial election. „We went to the PKB Chairman’s house, I remember it was after Friday prayers on May 30 before departing for Mecca. We had a heart-to-heart talk, as communication is definitely built among the elites, sharing views and perspectives,“ stated Said.

In addition to the Jakarta Pilkada, Puan revealed that she is also considering candidates for the East Java Pilkada. „We communicate all names and try to simulate all names because each region has its own differences and peculiarities. So all names need to be considered,“ she concluded.

Meanwhile, Populix Research Manager Nazmi Haddyat Tamara mentioned that in a survey of journalists, it was found that the most frequently mentioned threats in the last election came from individuals or groups with personal motives (36 percent) and candidate success teams (33 percent)

In the meeting, Said mentioned that PKB has a strong chance of nominating Anies for the Jakarta gubernatorial election. „If PKB, as far as I know, if I heard correctly, God willing, Anies Rasyid Baswedan,“ he said. Said mentioned that the results of the meeting with Cak Imin have been reported to PDIP Secretary General Hasto Kristiyanto and PDIP DPP Chairwoman Puan Maharani. He also said that he would report the view to PDIP Chairwoman Megawati Soekarnoputri. „It’s not certain with PDIP, we share views, not seeking agreements. My task is to report to Ms. Puan, to Mr. Secretary General,“ stated Said. „There might be meetings with the Chairwoman later, discussing the results of every lobby or friendly meeting among the elites,“ he stated.
