Suara.com – Political observer from Airlangga University, Prof. Kacung Marijan, considered that it was natural for the chairman of the NasDem Party, Surya Paloh, to meet with the general chairman of the PDIP, Megawati Soekarnoputri.
According to him, the second meeting was important to be held to defuse the atmosphere of tension between the two political parties which were considered to be heating up following the emergence of the reshuffle issue.
“Political communication to build a coalition is very important,” he said.
He said that it was no secret that Surya Paloh was diligent in conducting political gatherings, including efforts to communicate with Megawati.

“Pak Surya is one of the elite who diligently does this. This includes efforts to communicate with Mrs. Mega. That’s a natural thing,” he continued.
This political observer said that the results of the communication could be considered later, the most important thing was that the communication was established.
He emphasized that relations between political parties should not be frozen, they must be liquid and warm.
“The results are different, because the positions for the presidential candidates who are supported are indeed different. However, it is positive,” he explained.
He saw an open opportunity for NasDem and PDIP to get back together. Moreover, the coalition for the upcoming 2024 Presidential Election is not yet final.

“Although small, the opportunity to form a coalition is still there,” he said.
On the other hand, the Executive Director of Strategic Political Trias, Agung Baskoro, considered that the meeting between Surya Paloh and Megawati was difficult to carry out.
This was due to political resistance from PDIP after the NasDem declared Anies Baswedan as the presidential candidate that had surfaced so far.
In addition, the reshuffle issue that has been echoed by PDIP has made the chances of meeting Surya Paloh and Megawati even smaller.
