Head of Islamic party in the running​

Former Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan named the chairman of Indonesia’s largest Islamic party as his running mate for the 2024 presidential election, a move aimed at boosting his popularity in this Muslim majority country.

Opinion polls have forecast the election to be a close race between Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo and Defence Minister Prabowo Subianto, who have both received the support of the current president, Joko Widodo.

Anies, however, has been falling behind.

His vice-presidential pick, Muhaimin Iskandar, leads the National Awakening Party (PKB), which has strong ties with Indonesia’s biggest Islamic organisation, Nahdlatul Ulama (NU), that boasts 40 million members.

Prabowo and Ganjar have yet to name their vice-president choices.

Candidates are expected to formally register between October and November.

“With PKB joining, it feels like this coalition will move faster, be bigger and more stable,” Anies said in a rally broadcast from the city of Surabaya, East Java.

Running with Muhaimin could broaden Anies’ appeal to voters, as PKB and NU are seen as promoters of moderate Islam, said political analyst Djayadi Hanan, adding that Anies needed “a breakthrough” as his base voters were mostly conservatives.

Choosing Muhaimin could, however, harm Anies’ chances after former President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and his party withdrew from Anies’ coalition on Friday, accusing him of backpedalling on a promise to choose Yudhoyono’s son as his running mate.

“If you cannot be trusted now, cannot keep commitments, what will you do when you hold great power?” the former president said.

The decision could also hurt the campaign of defence minister Prabowo. Muhaimin had previously pledged to support the controversial ex-special forces general in 2024.

Sufmi Dasco Ahmad, a senior member of Prabowo’s Gerindra party, said the announcement “automatically ended the political cooperation of Gerindra and PKB” but added his party respected Muhaimin’s decision. — Reuters

My prediction if Ganjar pick either Sandiaga Uno or Ridwan Kamil, Ganjar is likely win and become Indonesia Next President.

Ganjar defending his anti Israel stance in this interview that makes Indonesia cannot become FIFA World Cup U20 host

 
The word Islamist doesn’t exist.
Islamist is an islamophobic term created by the enemies of Islam to attack Islam.
Unfortunately many ignorant and self hating Muslims use the term.

A political party can be an Islamic political party, which wants governance according to the Islamic way.

An Islamist political party is that party which uses islam as a political weapon. The secular parties will use freedom and false economic promises to win elections but the islamist political party will use Islamic slogans to win elections and fool the masses. The party knows their slogans are just slogans but islam is being used as a weapon, because its a good way to get votes.

In the western world, the young Islamic political party members call themselves islamist. It may not have existed but the word is normally used for those parties which use islam as a political weapon.

Zionists, Neo Nazis, Islamists and Hindutva are all considered terrorists.
