Suddenly Erick talks face to face with Sandiaga Uno, what’s going on? News – 1 hour ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Minister of State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN) Erick Thohir suddenly held a meeting with Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy Sandiaga Uno.

So, what did the two talk about?

It turned out that this meeting did not discuss political issues that were currently hotly discussed by the public. As is known, both of them were initially predicted to be Vice Presidential Candidates (Cawapres) from two Presidential Candidates (Capres).

Erick Thohir was initially predicted to be Prabowo Subianto’s vice presidential candidate. Meanwhile, Sandiaga Uno is predicted to be Ganjar Pranowo’s vice presidential candidate, who is supported by the United Development Party (PPP). But unfortunately, neither of them was chosen as vice presidential candidate.

Presidential candidate Ganjar Pranowo decided to appoint Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs Mahfud MD as his vice presidential candidate, and Prabowo Subianto finally appointed Solo Mayor Gibran Rakabuming Raka as his vice presidential candidate.

Apart from the political contestation, it turns out that Erick said that his meeting with Sandiaga Uno this time was specifically related to discussing Indonesian tourism development.

This is related to his position as Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs and Investment (Menko Marves) Ad Interim, while Coordinating Minister for Marves Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan is still carrying out health restoration in Singapore.

“I also miss discussions for the progress of the nation with Mas Sandi @sandiuno 😄,” said Erick on his Instagram account, Wednesday (25/10/2023).

“Before chairing the meeting as Coordinating Minister for Marves Ad Interim, we invited a special guest this morning. We discussed how to accelerate Indonesia’s tourism development.”

“This country is rich in natural beauty and culture. This is an important asset for our nation to drive national economic growth,” he said.

As is known, Sandiaga was encouraged by his party, namely the United Development Party (PPP), to become Ganjar’s vice presidential candidate. Incidentally, PPP is the party supporting Ganjar as presidential candidate.

However, Sandiaga’s name ultimately had to be eliminated. Sandiaga also admitted that his heart felt cut even though he had to accept this decision. Even though he was not Ganjar’s vice presidential candidate, Sandiaga is now appointed as a member of the Expert Council on the Ganjar Pranowo-Mahfud MD National Winning Team (TPN).

“GMPI has an abbreviation, this will be a quote I learned from Gus Romy (Muhamad Romahurmuziy). GMPI Ganjar Mahfud Indonesia’s Choice. Even though my heart is cut. That will be a quote from Gus Romy,” said Sandi at the GMPI PPP event, Thursday (19 /10/2023).
