However, said Fadli, during the campaign period, all party machines will be consolidated to support Prabowo-Sandiaga.
"If I think there will certainly be a way out, there are certain circumstances in the current situation, but later I am sure that they will be consolidated," said the Vice-President of Parliament.
Separately, PPP Secretary General Arsul Sani did not deny the existence of differences in opinion of support for President Jokowi at the grassroots level.
On the basis of the results of internal and external surveys, the support rate for Jokowi has actually increased.
This was due to the figure of Jokowi's companion, Ma & # 39; ruff Amin, being a religious figure, in line with the aspirations of most PPP frameworks.
"(Increased support) corresponds to the fact that his vice-president is a santri figure and even a spiritual or religious figure that is the criterion of PPP based on basic ambitions," Arsul said on Monday (09/10/2018 ) contact with Kompas.com.
"This fact is built up, partly because Gerindra and his coalition leave the clergy without regard to the recommendations of the ulama, as recently decided in the opinion of the Ulama," he said.
