The General Election Commission (KPU) of Musi Banyuasin Regency (Muba) invited the press to participate in overseeing the implementation of the upcoming 2024 Regional Head Election (Pilkada) .

**Reason PKS Nominates Anies Baswedan-Sohibul Iman in the 2024 Jakarta Pilkada** The Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) officially endorsed Anies Baswedan-Sohibul Iman as the governor (cagub) and deputy governor (cawagub) candidates in the 2024 Jakarta Pilkada. PKS President Ahmad Syaikhu clarified the reason for endorsing Anies and Sohibul Iman for the Jakarta gubernatorial election in 2024. Anies Baswedan is considered a figure of a leader who has performed well while leading Jakarta. According to Syaikhu, Anies‘ performance has made the people of Jakarta happy. „Mr. Anies Rasyid Baswedan successfully became the governor for the 2017-2022 period with various achievements in various sectors of development, successfully advancing the city and making its residents happy,“ stated Syaikhu at the Party Leadership School opening ceremony at the Grand Sahid Jaya Hotel, Central Jakarta, on June 25, 2024.

This announcement was made by PKS President Ahmad Syaikhu in his speech at the Party Leadership School titled ‚Continuing to Defend the People‘ at the Grand Sahid Hotel, Central Jakarta, on June 25, 2024. „The PKS Central Executive Board (DPP) in its meeting on Thursday, June 20, 2024, has decided to endorse Mr. Anies Rasyid Baswedan as the prospective governor and Mr. Sohibul Iman as the prospective deputy governor,“ said Syaikhu. He clarified that the decision by the PKS Central Executive Board (DPP) to nominate Anies and Sohibul Iman in the 2024 Jakarta Pilgub was based on the proposal from the PKS DKI Jakarta Regional Executive Board (DPW).

Additionally, he mentioned that the party also considered various inputs from figures, clerics, religious leaders, cross-sect leaders, scholars, and the public in Jakarta. „The main aspects considered were candidates with good leadership experience in both the executive and legislative branches, a proven track record, credibility, capacity, and a high probability of winning,“ he stated. Furthermore, Syaikhu believes that the Anies-Sohibul Iman pair is a good match. According to Syaikhu, they complement each other for the 2024 Jakarta Pilkada. „Some have already coined the acronym AMAN (Anies-Sohibul Iman). Whatever the name, Anies-Sohibul Iman has the qualifications to complement each other and lead DKI Jakarta,“ stated Syaikhu.

Hasyim assured that if the Sirekap model for the 2024 Regional Elections is ready, it will be presented to the relevant commission in the DPR RI. „When it’s ready, we will report it in the hearing session with Commission II of the DPR,“ said Hasyim.

Previously, KPU RI member Idham Holik said that the use of Sirekap in the 2024 Simultaneous Regional Elections aims for public transparency. „We will use Sirekap, and the legal considerations from the Constitutional Court’s recent ruling will guide our evaluation and improvement of Sirekap for the regional elections on November 27, 2024,“ said Idham when met by the media at the KPU RI Office in Jakarta on Tuesday, April 23, 2024.

Responding to this, Commission II DPR RI Chairman Ahmad Doli Kurnia said that a special session on Sirekap would be scheduled when discussing KPU regulations (PKPU) for the 2024 Regional Elections. He asked the KPU not to rush in stating that Sirekap would be used again for the 2024 Regional Elections. „Regarding Sirekap, let’s discuss it later. That’s another PKPU. I’m not clear on Sirekap, so don’t say it will be used now,“ Doli responded.

n“We all must always be ready to establish synergy and cooperation with media colleagues in creating a conducive climate ahead of this simultaneous Pilkada, helping the public to obtain information wisely, balanced, and responsibly,“ said Kartiko

On the other hand, with Sohibul Iman running, Adi also noted that PKS might be aiming to partner with Anies Baswedan. „At the same time, PKS is certainly preparing Sohibul Iman to potentially partner with Anies Baswedan. PKS is quite closely associated with Anies Baswedan. This seems to be PKS’s goal, not to lose momentum as the winner of the 2024 legislative elections in Jakarta and to ensure their cadre is nominated either as governor or deputy governor,“ he explained.

**Prepare Alternatives** The PKS Central Executive Board (DPP) nominated PKS Deputy Chair of the Syuro Council Mohamad Sohibul Iman as a prospective gubernatorial candidate for the Special Capital Region of Jakarta in the 2024 Pilkada. Regarding this, political analyst Adi Prayitno sees this as a reasonable move. He noted that in addition to being a cadre party, PKS also has high voter support in Jakarta. „I think it is quite rational for PKS to nominate their internal cadre, Sohibul Iman, to run in the Jakarta Pilgub. There are two reasons: first, PKS is a cadre party that has always put forward its cadres to compete in Pilkada, not only in Jakarta but also in other regions,“ he stated to on Monday. „The second reason is the significant increase in PKS’s legislative vote count in 2024, making them the highest vote-winner in Jakarta. These two variables explain why PKS proposed their internal cadre,“ he continued.
