The electability of the Prabowo Subianto-Hatta Rajasa pair has exceeded that of Joko '€œJokowi'€ Widodo-Jusuf Kalla, a survey commissioned by the Strategic Development and Policy Research Center (Puskaptis) shows.

The survey put the electability of the Prabowo-Hatta pair at 44.64 percent and their rival ticket at 42.79 percent.

'€œPrabowo-Hatta has surpassed Jokowi-Kalla by around 1.67 percent. This data shows that Prabowo-Hatta pair is experiencing a positive trend, with electability up by around 5.36 percent. Meanwhile, support for the Jokowi-Kalla ticket has started to stagnate and entered a negative phase or down by around 1.75 percent,'€ said Puskaptis director Husin Yazid in Jakarta on Sunday, as quoted by Antara news agency.

From the results of the survey, which was conducted from June 6 to June 12, Prabowo-Hatta is leading in Bali, East Nusa Tenggara, Java, and Sumatra while Jokowi-Kalla fare better in Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Papua-Maluku.

Prabowo leads in three regions, namely Banten, Central Java and East Java and Jokowi in Jakarta, Yogyakarta and West Java.

'€œWe understand that Java has the highest number of voters, this is where the Prabowo-Hatta pair are gaining ground. Meanwhile, Jokowi-Kalla in Java has declined or suffered a negative trend of 2.75 percent,'€ he said.

According to the survey, respondents chose Prabowo as they considered him to be as a brave leader, with a firm character and an authoritative bearing. He was also considered a hard worker with extensive experience.

Meanwhile, others preferred Jokowi for his simple, moderate, humble personality and closeness to the people. He is seen as a leader with a lot of achievements and has a clear mission and vision.

The survey involved 2,400 respondents in 115 regencies and municipalities across 33 provinces. The survey was conducted via a face-to-face interview with a sampling error of +/-1.8 percent and a trust level of 95 percent. (gda/ebf)
