Gibran Becomes Prabowo’s Vice Presidential Candidate, Many Netizens Negative Comments Tech – 2 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – The pair of presidential candidates (capres) and vice presidential candidates (cawapres) Prabowo Subianto and Gibran Rakabuming Raka have registered with the KPU today, Wednesday (26/10/2023). Previously, the pair from the Advanced Indonesia Coalition (KIM) party had also held a declaration at GBK.

Gibran’s candidacy has become a hot topic of conversation among netizens on social media. There are those who support the steps taken by the Mayor of Solo and the eldest son of President Joko Widodo, but not infrequently those who criticize him.


The founder of Drone Emprit, Ismail Fahmi, released the latest report analyzing conversations on the internet regarding Gibran’s candidacy. Data drawn from October 21-23, 2023.

CNBC Indonesia has asked for permission to publish this data. As a result, the majority of discussions on social media regarding Gibran’s candidacy were colored by negative conversations, namely 41%.

Meanwhile, positive conversations regarding this topic were 39%, quoted in the Drone Emprit report, Wednesday (25/10/2023).

“The escalation of discussions peaked after the Constitutional Court’s decision to ratify the regulations [soal batas usia minimum cawapres],” stated in the report.

Drone Emprit analysis, netizens have predicted that the Constitutional Court’s decision is aimed at paving the way for Gibran to accompany Prabowo in the 2024 presidential election.

Furthermore, the Drone Emprit report stated that the group supporting Ganjar or PDIP expressed more disappointment with Gibran’s candidacy than supporters of Anies and Cak Imin.

Many Ganjar/PDIP supporters label Gibran as a traitor, using the PDIP to pursue power. Then, the narrative that emerged was that PDIP was ‘thrown away’ by Jokowi and Gibran.

Furthermore, the narrative from Prabowo-Gibran supporters framed Jokowi’s position, which reacted through Gibran’s candidacy. Because, Jokowi is often embarrassed by PDIP or General Chairperson Megawati Soekarnoputri who says Jokowi has no ‘power’ without PDIP.

Apart from that, netizens from the Drone Emprit analysis also made insinuations towards Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono, and the Democrat party, regarding Gibran’s candidacy.

The data collected by Drone Emprit was taken from online media and X (formerly Twitter). The method uses a keyword approach, namely ‘Gibran’, ‘Mayor of Solo’, and ‘@gibran_tweet’.
