GATOT NURMANTYO AND HIS FUTURE POLITICAL CARIER By Arif Rahman
Rumoursly, former Indonesia’s army chief General (Ret) Gatot Nurmantyo want to participate as the presiden candidate at the next presidential elections in 2024. If those rumour is true, the rivalry to be the next Indonesia’s president has been tightly predicted. Many civilian politician and former army or police general will spur the next elections. They will be exerted all of their capabilities, relatives, colleagues etc to make possitive branding to the people at least it will be started in 2021 and 2022.
Indonesia is predicted to be the biggest country at least 15 years again, because of that Jokowi’s second term does not make political and economical blunder which can be trapped Indonesia into the dangerous way. Indeed, the next president must have more complete competencies than Jokowi.
Several names can be tried to promote as the next president such as Sri Mulyani Indrawati, Sri Pudjiastuti, Ahok, Anies Baswedan, Sandiaga Uno, Tito Karnavian, Budi Gunawan, Erick Thohir, Edy Rahmayadi, Ustadz Abdul Somad, Gatot Nurmantyo and others name.
Considering and according to the previously survey before the 2019 concurrent general elections, some names such as Ahok, Sri Mulyani, Tito Karnavian, Anies Baswedan, Abdul Somad, Budi Gunawan and Gatot Nurmantyo had been named and known by the people.
If Gatot Nurmantyo will be run to be the next political competition, he must be joined in political parties and he should build a good political images.
During to be Indonesia’s army general, Gatot Nurmantyo had built political relationship with Islam communities, and he had attended at 212 public gathering at Monas, Jakarta. Those relation must be kept by Gatot Nurmantyo.
Many political and networking works shall be done by Gatot Nurmantyo and its needs a lot of political budget which must be prepared by him. Hopefully.
