Suara.com – The future presidential candidate Anies Baswedan, Sunday (26/2/2023) today attended the PKS Standby Call which was held in the courtyard of the Madya Stadium, Gelora Bung Karno Complex (GBK). During the event, Anies addressed the thousands of cadres who were present.
In his speech, Anies admitted that he remembered the moment of the 2004 general election when he saw cadres lining up to hold a rally. At that time, the presidential election (Pilpres) was won by the pair Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Jusuf Kalla.
Following is Anies Baswedan’s full speech at the PKS Standby Call:
On a shady morning in a morning where the atmosphere gives a feeling of peace, we are given health, given the convenience to be able to be here together.

Alhamdulillah, we are very happy to be here. Among the thousands of PKS whose enthusiasm warms the atmosphere this morning, this enthusiasm reminds us all of the atmosphere almost 20 years ago before the 2024 Presidential Election. Do you still remember? in that year, 2004, PKS was the first party to join the coalition to nominate Mr. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to become President of the Republic of Indonesia in 2004, and what were the results? victory.
What happened after the victory, improvement and change, the spirit of 2004 was felt 7 years ago at the end of 2016 when PKS gave us a mandate as candidates for governor of DKI Jakarta to become a new chapter in our journey with PKS.
A journey that is nurtured through struggles to take root deep and grow tall. Our struggle at that time was like a leaf against a hammer, a small one against a giant.
Faced with the survey figures at that time, instead of being discouraged, PKS cadres were even more enthusiastic. Thank God, the big struggle at that time again resulted in victory. At that time, all of us, together with PKS, proved that victory was not a matter of logistics, not merely a matter of power. But this is a matter of hard work, smart work, thorough work, and Alhamdulillah Allah will help us all win.
During its 5 year journey of carrying out the mandate in DKI Jakarta, PKS has always accompanied, always supported, always closely guarded the business and alhamdulillah the success of all of us in work has brought about change in Jakarta, ensuring that Jakarta has risen through the pandemic, has risen through various other crises that have taken turns, and encouraging the emergence of works and policies that break down and break through stagnation.

with PKS in Jakarta we reach all, bring a sense of calm, a sense of security, calm and peaceful for all, together with PKS in Jakarta we have succeeded in bringing change, bringing progress, bringing justice to all in Jakarta. Now is the time for us to move on to the next level, such as the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government’s tagline, which has only been in use for a few months, the tagline reads Jakarta’s success for Indonesia. This tagline that we carry now.
Today, 26 February 2023, almost a year before the presidential and legislative elections, PKS has again raised its piercings and echoed the embers of struggle, what is the struggle for? The struggle to improve together, to advance the nation we love together. Is everything ready? Is everything ready? Is everything ready?
As the PKS President said last night at the National Working Meeting, a great nation must not forget history and leave continuity. every era has a leader, and every leader has its challenges. The PKS President last night summarized the continuity of the role and services of the country’s leaders so far.
Starting from the first Bung Karno who has inherited nation formation and character building to unite diverse nations, I quote this directly from the PKS President’s Speech last night. The second is President Soeharto who left sustainable development, then President Habibie who upholds freedom and efforts to promote democratization. Then the president KH Abdurrahman Wahid or Gusdur emphasized the values of diversity and tolerance. Then President Megawati became a symbol that women also have the same rights and opportunities to become leaders in this country.
Then then President SBY who was able to bring national stability and promote democracy, as well as President Jokowi who has accelerated infrastructure development in various parts of the country. In the future, our tasks and challenges are to complete, straighten and strengthen national development, especially in the areas of people’s economic growth, rule of law, strengthening democracy, equal distribution of welfare, and presenting social justice. the principles of development approaches and policies and government management that we have jointly implemented in Jakarta so far can be an illustration, can become a benchmark for what we will do in the future.
That’s why we often ask if we want to see what someone will do in the future, then look at their track record because track record is the best predictor for the future. For that I convey again to all of us who support this path of struggle….
This Way of Struggle in our future work does not need to make hoaxes. We don’t need to curse those who attack. We don’t need to make things up and we don’t need to exaggerate achievements either. Why? because we are confident in our track record, we are confident in our record of work, we are confident in our existing partner ideas.
Spread and convey it all politely by embracing and by inspiring. People who are confident in what they have will not be provoked and will not be swayed by attacks and attempts to belittle others. That’s us, all right? up to it?
Our politics is the politics of justice and unity. and the specialty of Indonesia lies not only in its diversity. There are many other nations, there are many other countries that are more diverse than Indonesia, both in terms of ethnicity and language, but what is special about our Indonesia in that diversity is unity. Like a compound of hydrogen and oxygen to form a new compound called water. Water is not nitrogen and water is not oxygen, but in water there is hydrogen, in water there is oxygen, and water is a compound of the two.
Often we focus only on the constituent elements and forget about the compounds.
Indonesia is the result of a combination of elements that exist in this nation. and that unity is impossible to materialize without the presence of social justice. The ultimate goal of Pancasila, namely the main point in the promise of independence, is social justice for all Indonesian people. Justice is not only that the state protects minorities and not only accommodates the majority, but that the state exists and protects all.
Justice is not only raising the small or benefiting the large, but the state is present for all, raising the small without discouraging the large. With the presence of justice for all, there will also be peace and prosperity for all. This is what we are fighting for together after 5 years together with PKS in Jakarta, this has brought enthusiasm, the spirit of Jakarta moving forward together.
Let’s move on to the next struggle. If 5 years ago we made Jakarta move forward together, then God willing, in the days to come, in the years to come, we will move Indonesia forward together, the country advanced, the people happy.
Ready to work hard together?. Ready to work completely? Ready to work sincerely? Ready to work together? ready to win with the people? may Allah bless our efforts.
May Allah ease our endeavours. May Allah enable all of us to carry out the mandate of the struggle for the future of Indonesia, for progress, for happiness, and to earn Allah’s blessing. Justice is the dream of every human being. Prosperity is the estuary of struggle. Together with PKS, we join hands, win together with the people, complete our goals. Thank You.
