Nusron Wahid, the head of Agency for the Placement and Protection of Indonesian Migrant Workers (BNP2TKI), and who is also the head Jakarta Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama’s reelection campaign, has denied the validity of an alleged list of Ahok’s campaign team, which has gone viral on social media in the past few days.
“No, no, the list is untrue. Just wait [until] we release the names,” Nusron, a Golkar politician, told The Jakarta Post on Friday.
The lists consisted of more than 100 figures, including politicians from three political parties supporting Ahok’s candidacy: Nasdem, Golkar, and Hanura. The list also has some renowned social media influencers who are known to be supporters of Ahok on Twitter such as Poltak Hotradero, activist Guntur Romli, social media activist Shafiq Pontoh, movie director Fajar Nugros, and singer J-Flow.
Campaign spokesman Singgih Widyastono stated that the list was just an “initial draft” of the campaign team.
“It was an initial draft and the members on the list are still optional. I’m sure that there will be a lot of changes to the list,” Singgih said.
Apart from those on list, PT Danareksa Kartika commissioner Rini Djoemadi was also rumored to have joined the campaign team. However, Kartika, has denied this.
“As far as I know, the campaign team will be established when Ahok registers himself with the Jakarta election commission. Nusron will be campaign chief while Amalia Ayuningtyas of Teman Ahok will be secretary. Meanwhile, I will not join the team,” Kartika, the coordinator of Jokowi Ahok Social Media Volunteer, said.
