Discussions intensify over potential presidential candidates for Indonesia’s 2024 general election

The initial phase of the 2024 Indonesian election kicked off on Jun 14, as the election commission marked the start of the multistage process in a ceremony.

Although the presidential election will only be held on Feb 14, 2024, talk of potential nominees has intensified in recent weeks.

This is because political parties need to register themselves in August if they plan to join the contest taking place once every five years.

President Joko Widodo will not be able to run again. According to the constitution, he can only stay in power for two terms and they will end in 2024.

This has set the stage for coalition-building among the parties, as well as discussions on who they might back as presidential candidates. /CNA
