Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Joko Widodo (Jokowi) is expected to have a national campaign team, with 10 directorates, for the 2019 presidential election.

"The 10 directorates, under the structure of the winning secretariat, are part of the national campaign team, formulated by the secretary generals of political parties that are members of the coalition," Johny G. Plate, secretary general of the National Democratic (Nasdem) party, stated following a meeting attended by nine secretary generals of political parties joining the coalition supporting Jokowi`s presidential candidacy, here, Monday evening.

The nine secretary generals attending the meeting were Hasto Kristiyanto from the PDIP, Lodewijk Freiderich Paulus from Golkar, Johny G. Plate from Nasdem, Hery Lontung from Hanura, Arsul Sani from PPP, Abdul Kadir Karding from PKB, Ahmad Rofik from Perindo, Raja Juli Antoni from PSI, and Verry Surya Hendrawan from the PKPI.

Jokowi`s presidential election campaign team is big, so its structure and work mechanism must be formulated seriously, he emphasized.

The team`s 10 directorates comprise directorates on programs, finance, collecting and networking, law and advocacy, information and communication, logistics, election witnesses, campaign contents, attracting young voters, and volunteers.

Each directorate will have operational teams.

The team will be bigger, as every political party supporting Jokowi will have 25 spokesmen.

"These spokesmen will have respective roles in accordance with their fields. These spokesmen will be trained," he stated.

Indonesia will hold simultaneous presidential and legislative elections on April 17, 2019.
