“In the past, I had an affair with Mr. Amin, but now it’s reversed because of Amin’s attitude, which often causes trouble, divides the people, he’s old and he’s still ambitious, so Mr. Amin is aware.” mom @nursalamsalam4073
In Rizal Akbar’s podcast, Amien Rais also revealed that if Anies Baswedan doesn’t get a ticket in the 2024 presidential election, he will firmly support Prabowo Subianto.
“This is supposing, if it’s very easy this answer Prabowo is our choice, which is definitely not Mr. Ganjar. Mr. Ganjar is the continuity of this present regime and that will be dangerous in my opinion,” he said.
