Icha Rastika, Jakarta – Kompas Research and Development (Litbang Kompas) researcher Bestian Nainggolan says that almost all of those who voted for presidential and vice presidential ticket number 2, Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto and Solo Mayor Gibran Rakabuming Raka, did so because they are seen as being supported by President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo.

This was revealed from an exit poll conducted by Litbang Kompas following voting in the 2024 presidential election yesterday, Wednesday February 14.

“It turns out that for 02 voters the biggest factor was support by Jokowi, 99 percent voted for 02 because they felt there was support for them from Pak [Mr] Jokowi", said Nainggolan during a Kompas.com Newsroom discussion program on Thursday February 15.

According to Nainggolan, this shows that the main factor in voters choosing the Prabowo-Gibran ticket was not because of things related to the candidates themselves.

He said that factors related to the personal capacity of the candidates were the second biggest in determining the vote for Prabowo.

“That is, bold and firm, this has always come up since before in the choice of Pak Prabowo [in previous elections] because of the boldness and firmness symbolised by his military background", said Nainggolan.

Exit Poll results also show that the majority of those who voted for Widodo in the 2019 presidential election voted for Prabowo this time round, likewise also those who are satisfied with Widodo's performance.

The results of Litbang Kompas's calculations as of Thursday afternoon at 5.01 pm show that the Prabowo-Gibran ticket has received 58.51 percent of the vote, surpassing the Anies Baswedan-Muhaimin Iskandar ticket with 25.22 percent and the Ganjar Pranowo-Mahfud MD ticket with 16.27 percent.
