Prabowo Subianto
...
Prabowo Subianto is a former career soldier and ex-lieutenant general in Indonesia's Special Forces. He served in that post during the rule of former autocrat Suharto, to whose daughter he was once married. In 1998 he was discharged from military service for his alleged involvement in the kidnapping of democracy activists who protested against Mr. Suharto and eventually drove him from power. Mr. Subianto has denied any involvement.
In 2008 he co-founded the Great Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra) and ran as the vice presidential candidate in the 2009 election on a ticket with then-president Megawati Sukarnoputri. Her party, the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle, or PDI-P, is backing Mr. Subianto's competitor, Joko Widodo.
...
Mr. Subianto is also the head of the Indonesian Farmers Association and is connected to the country's lucrative mining and palm oil industries through his brother, Hashim Djojohadikusumo, one of Indonesia's richest men.

The Indikator Politik Indonesia survey, which polled 1,220 people from April 22 to 26 with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.9 percentage points, found 29 percent would choose a team of Prabowo and Rajasa.

The Golkar Party has finally decided to throw its support behind Prabowo Subianto, the presidential candidate from the Great Indonesia Movement Party, or Gerindra, surprising many who had considered it more likely that Golkar would support Joko Widodo from the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle, or PDI-P.
...
Speaking at Rumah Polonia in East Jakarta, the house of former president Sukarno, Prabowo said his candidacy had received the support of the National Mandate Party, or PAN; the Prosperous Justice Party, or PKS; the United Development Party, or PPP; and Golkar. "Indonesia's major political parties such as PAN, PKS, PPP and Golkar have decided to give their support to us," Prabowo said in a televised speech. "As a former soldier I feel like the past few months have been more exhausting - Indonesian politics is exhausting." "Today is a historic day for all of us because the leaders who will initiate the change in the nation have been officially declared," Gerindra chairman Suhardi said. "We ask for the blessings of all Indonesians for the candidacy of Prabowo and Hatta," he added, referring to Hatta Rajasa, the PAN chairman who will share Prabowo's ticket in the July 9 presidential election.
...
Suhardi said Prabowo and Hatta, with their respective military and business backgrounds, would make a compelling case to the Indonesian people.

"As a great nation Indonesia needs a leader with ideas and abilities to execute them and that can been seen in Prabowo and Hatta," he said.

Golkar chairman Aburizal Bakrie has communicated with Prabowo Subianto, it was decided last night."
The announcement by Prabowo that he had secured the support of Golkar is a boon to his campaign but it remains to be seen whether the support of Golkar's formidable election machine will translate into a boost in the polls.
...
Prabowo Subianto of the Great Indonesia Movement Party, or Gerindra, is also expected to register later today.
...
Just days after his high-profile meeting with Aburizal at his Bogor ranch, which ended in smiles and handshakes, Prabowo opted for Coordinating Minister for the Economy Hatta Rajasa, also the chairman of the National Mandate Party (PAN) and Yudhoyono's in-law, as his running mate, while Joko is widely expected to pick former vice president and Golkar senior figure Jusuf Kalla.

Jakarta (ANTARA News) - The national leadership meeting of the United Development Party (PPP) has finally decided to support the presidential aspirant from the Great Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra), Prabowo Subianto, stated PPP Chairman Suryadharma Ali. file:///M|/_EJI/__Websites/indodigest/2300elections2014prabowo.htm
"Finally, at the end of our meeting at 2 a.m., on Monday, we officially decided to support Prabowo Subianto as the presidential candidate in the July 9, 2014 presidential election," Suryadharma Ali remarked.
He noted that there were three options at the start of the meeting on Saturday: Prabowo, Joko "Jokowi" Widodo of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP), and Aburizal Bakrie of the Golkar party with PPP Deputy Chairman Lukman Hakim Saefuddin as Aburizals running mate.
But, the meeting, which was held on Saturday and lasted till early Monday morning, to determine the direction of its coalition finally decided to coalesce with Prabowo.

"I do not mind [being vice presidential candidate], and neither does Prabowo," Aburizal told reporters after a meeting with Prabowo in Hambalang in Bogor, West Java, on Monday.

Golkar-Gerindra Coalition's President: Aburizal Bakrie or Prabowo Subianto?

Prabowo Subianto, an ex-special forces general vying to be president, would build a "people economy" and boost funding tenfold for the agriculture industry that 70 percent of Indonesians depend on for a living, he said in an interview on March 19.

A document outlining the political commitment of PDI-P chairwoman Megawati Soekarnoputri to support the presidential nomination of Prabowo - Gerindra Party chief patron - in the 2014 presidential election was leaked to the public only a day after the PDI-P announced the Jakarta governor's nomination on Friday, providing PDI-P's political opponents with a reason to question the integrity of the party and its leader.
The document, a copy of which was obtained by The Jakarta Post, contains seven articles and was signed by Megawati and Prabowo on May 16, 2009, the day they registered with the General Elections Commission (KPU) as presidential and vice presidential candidates for the 2009 presidential election.
...
Two articles, for example, stipulate that should Megawati and Prabowo win the 2009 election, the latter will be assigned to handle the country's economic policies and granted a right to handpick related ministers, including agriculture minister, finance minister and energy and mineral resources minister.
...
The last article, considered the most crucial point, mentions Megawati will "support the nomination of Prabowo Subianto as a presidential candidate in the 2014 presidential election". Prabowo is considered the most popular presidential candidate if Jokowi is taken out of the equation, according to various political surveys.
PDI-P deputy secretary-general Hasto Kristianto said he had learned about the leaked document but refused to comment on its authenticity. He, however, did not deny all the agreements outlined in the document. "Such political agreements should be seen in the whole context, meaning all clauses in the document can only be implemented should the [Megawati-Prabowo] pair win the 2009 presidential election," he said.

Among the potential presidential candidates, Prabowo has spoken most forcefully about the dangers of endemic graft and rising intolerance. He is also the person that many observers believe represents the country's best hope for curbing corruption and Islamic extremism before it leads to violence.

On July 9, the voters will be choosing between two presidential candidates - Mr Joko Widodo (also known as Jokowi) and Mr Prabowo Subianto.
...
Jokowi's opponent, Mr Subianto is president of the Gerindra (Great Indonesian Movement) Party which was formed in 2009. He has a mixed background of military and business. The son-in-law of former President Soeharto, he rose to a high position in the Indonesian Army.
Mr Subianto came into the spotlight internationally for his 1996 covert operations in East Timor. He played an important role in suppressing the rebellions there, which led to mnay human right abuses in that country.
In 1998, Mr Subianto was promoted to the head of the 27,000-strong Army Strategic Reserve Command (Kostrad). A key Jakarta garrison, it supervises operational readiness among all the commands and carries out defense and security operations as per the policies of the Indonesian Army commander.
Having served in the Army at a very high position, Mr Subianto, now a successful businessman, has emerged as a shrewd politician who has succeded in bringing smaller political parties to his side.

Prabowo invites PKS into a coalition [5 November] Former Kopassus commander, Prabowo Subianto, head of Gerindra has called on the PKS (Partai Keadilan Sejahtera) to enter into a coalition to support his presidential bid.
...
Strong support for the Gerindra Party will come from the mass network and supporters of retired General Prabowo Subianto, who is also the chair of the advisory board to the party with the Garuda bird as its symbol. According to the Charta Politika Executive Director Bima Arya Sugiarto, there are five key sources of mass support that are directly headed by Subianto.
...
Sugiarto also said that Subianto as an individual figure has a huge influence over the pace and popularity of the party and organisational networks that are both strong and extensive. "Not to mention the non-stop 'air attacks' or advertisements that are concrete and grounded", he said.
Gerindra Deputy Chairperson Fadli Zon meanwhile said that Gerindra and Subianto are like two sides of a coin that cannot be separated. "It has to be admitted that without Prabowo, Gerindra's pace [of growth] would be slow, but indeed it is preferable if voting for a party that it is packaged as one with its presidential candidate", he said.

Prabowo invites PKS into a coalition
SINDO, 5 November 2008
Former commander of Kopassus, Prabowo who is now head of Gerindra has called on the PKS (Partai Keadilan Sejahtera) to enter into a coalition to support his bid to become president. He said they were in talks with the PKS whose support was needed bearing in mind that the law requires that a candidate for president requires support from 20% of seats or 25% of the votes.
Prabowo said that they were also approaching other parties about a coalition. He has also had talks with other top political leaders but would not name them.
...
PAN, PKB and possibly the PPP could form a coalition., with Prabowo also making coalition approaches.
Indonesia 2014 presidential elections, Jokowi

Prabowo Subianto
...
With opinion polls pointing to falling popular support for Widodo-who was earlier touted to be a likely overwhelming winner-intensive efforts are being made to prevent a victory by his opponent, Prabowo Subianto .
...
Prabowo, a former general, son-in-law of Suharto and commander of the notorious Kopassus elite special forces, is a wealthy business figure and founder of the Great Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra).
...
On June 22, the newspaper published an article based on the email and citing Blake's call for Indonesia to investigate alleged human rights abuses by Prabowo.
...
Washington's concerns today are that Prabowo is too nakedly associated with the brutal record of the Suharto era-which the US backed for three decades-plus his nationalist rhetoric against Indonesia being tied to the interests of the United States.
Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, the outgoing president, sought to balance between the US and China, Indonesia's biggest trading partner, but there are fears that Prabowo will be more resistant to US pressure to line up behind Washington's aggressive "pivot" to Asia to militarily and strategically encircle Beijing.
...
The July 4 Jakarta Post editorial denounced Prabowo for affiliating with "hard-line Islamic groups" and "religious thugs.
...
The editorial insisted that Prabowo was "embedded in a New Order-style of transactional politics that betrays the spirit of reformasi.
...
After mentioning Prabowo's "tainted record on human rights," its July 5 article denounced him as a "master of money politics" who "bashes foreign investors.
...
Widodo's coalition encompasses the Muslim-based National Awakening Party, the National Democrat Party led by media tycoon Surya Paloh and the Hanura Party led by ex-army commander Wiranto who, himself tainted by loyal service to Suharto, has been releasing the dirt on Prabowo.
...
Both Widodo and Prabowo have resorted to nationalist rhetoric to divert attention away from faltering economic growth, revealing the impact of the global downturn, while feigning commitments to protect people's "welfare.
...
His likely rivals in the presidential race - businessman Aburizal Bakrie of the Golkar Party and retired general Prabowo Subianto of the Great Indonesia Movement (Gerindra) Party - cannot match that breadth of support. Moreover, the first is weighed down by accusations of business wrongdoing and the second by alleged human rights abuses when he was in the army. Jokowi is not.
Jokowi is so attractive to a corruption-tired populace that it is possible that he will win in the first round of the election. Although poll numbers now give him less than the 50 percent threshold to avoid a run-off in the second round, the momentum behind him is strong and growing. But even if he falls short in the first round, he is poised to prevail in the second round. Of course, he will not win by default. Given his popularity, the other candidates will bring to bear on him their undoubted firepower. For the 63-year-old Prabowo, the prospects of Jokowi winning and remaining in power for 10 years would be chilling. Prabowo, who has invested huge financial resources and time in a nationwide campaign, is hardly willing to see his chances of becoming president being destroyed. He could be expected to mount a vigorous campaign to regain the political initiative.
Finally, Jokowi will now have to make a transition from a municipal stage to the national stage. He will have to present his views on key national and international issues. For example, will he continue with the nationalist bent in economic policy so evident in the past year? How can he safeguard Indonesia's interests at a time when China's maritime assertiveness and the American pivot to Asia are leading to big-power games being played out in Indonesia's sphere of influence? Indonesians are waiting for the answers.
...
Nearly all surveys have shown Jokowi tops the list of presidential candidates, overshadowing other top political names such as Prabowo Subianto, Aburizal Bakrie, Mahfud MD and even Jokowi's party leader, Megawati Soekarnoputri.
...
One published this month in Kompas, a national daily, showed him winning 43% of the popular vote, four times as many as the runner-up, Prabowo Subianto, a former general, and even further ahead of Aburizal Bakrie, the candidate of Golkar, once the party of Suharto, the dictator who fell in 1998.
...
In 2010, his personal wealth - including inherited properties, a furniture factory, and mobile assets - was officially reviewed and estimated at $US1.5 million (Rp. 18 billion); a value that places him among the well-to-dos in Central Java, but pales in comparison to the wealth levels of Jakarta's politico-business elites, such as Aburizal Bakrie, Jusuf Kalla, or Prabowo Subianto.
A key motivation for entering the political game, Jokowi argued, was his rising dissatisfaction with Solo's public officials - who provided inadequate services, sought rents rather than solutions, and disregarded people's pressing concerns. 'Solo's officials adhere to lengthy administrative procedures', he told me. 'Bureaucrats do not operate like business people.
...
To be sure, critics are quick to point out that these obligations are largely owed to two Indonesian party bosses: Prabowo Subianto and Megawati Sukarnoputri, the chairs of Gerindra and PDI-P respectively.
...
No Indonesian political figure has a higher presidential electability rating than Joko Widodo and Prabowo Subianto.
