Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono Urges Reconciliation After 2024 Indonesian Presidential Election

Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono (AHY), the chairman of the Democratic Party, has called for unity and reconciliation following the 2024 Indonesian presidential election. In a statement, AHY urged those dissatisfied with the election results to prioritize the interests of the people over any particular group or party.

The Democratic Party, as part of the Advanced Indonesia Coalition, supported the winning ticket of Prabowo Subianto and Gibran Rakabuming Raka. AHY congratulated Prabowo and Gibran on their election as president and vice president for the 2024-2029 term, and pledged his party's readiness to participate in the success of the government's policies and programs.

Why this matters: The call for unity and reconciliation by a prominent political figure like AHY is significant in the aftermath of a closely contested presidential election. It highlights the importance of political stability and national interests in Indonesia's democratic process.

AHY emphasized that the Indonesian people want a peaceful, harmonious, united, just, advanced, and prosperous country. He called on all elements of the nation to work together towards a better future, setting aside any dissatisfaction with the election outcome.

The Democratic Party chairman also expressed gratitude for his party's return to the national government, which happened earlier than expected. AHY has made a commitment with Prabowo regarding the distribution of ministerial positions, and has asked his party's cadres not to make excessive demands. He assured that he will handle the lobbying for ministerial positions and propose the best Democratic Party cadres to fill those roles.

The KPU, Indonesia's election commission, has officially appointed Prabowo Subianto and Gibran Rakabuming Raka as the president and vice president elect, with the pair securing 58.6% of the national valid votes. AHY reiterated the Democratic Party's commitment to supporting the Prabowo-Gibran government, both in the executive and legislative branches at the central and regional levels.
