PDI-P upbeat about presidential

Patron of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) Taufiq Kiemas said that his party would have no problems nominating candidates for the 2014 presidential election.

“The PDI-P has so many presidential candidates,” Taufiq said as quoted by kompas.com.

He said that the PDI-P could nominate some of its young members, including deputy speaker of the House of Representatives Pramono Anung Wibowo and chairman of the PDI-P faction at the House Puan Maharani.

Taufiq said party chairperson Megawati Soekarnoputri should not run in the election to give younger candidates a chance.
