Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Bandung Mayor Ridwan Kamil refused to compete against Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama in the Jakarta Regional Election 2017. The public is urged to wait, as Ridwan will decide in his own time.

Member of Jakarta Regional Council (DPRD) from the Gerindra Fraction, Prabowo Soenirman stated that many regional heads have dreamed of being Jakarta's Governor. Why? Because it is the miniature of Indonesia along with all of its problems.
"The issue (of Ridwan Kamil) has not emerged yet. Be patient, wait for it," said Prabowo at DPRD DKI Building, alan Kebon Sirih, Central Jakarta, Wednesday (10/7/2015).
Prabowo is certain that Kang Emil, his nickname, really wants to lead Jakarta. "Who does not want to be Jakarta Governor? He will say yes," he stated.
Prabowo admitted that so far, Gerindra Party has not yet opened any communication with Kang Emil. There is the registration procedure to be fulfilled by Kang Emil. "There are no communications. Gerindra party always conducts tight screenings, there are mechanism for that," Prabowo stated.
