Gatot Nurmantyo Will be Declared as Presidential Candidate

Gatot Nurmantyo.

JAKARTA, NNC - A movement that is called Gatot Nurmantyo for the People (GNR) is emerging. Even this movement has been planning to declare Former Commander of Indonesian Armed Forces (TNI) General (Ret.) Gatot Nurmantyo as presidential candidate in the 2019 Presidential Election.

The GNR will declare Gatot as the presidential candidate because they believe that Gatot is ready to run as a 2019 presidential candidate and very potential compared to other candidates. The declaration will be done at a restaurant in Senayan, Friday (4/6/2018).

"We invite all elements of society and the media to be present in the declaration," said the invitation for the declaration of Gatot presidency that was distributed to the media on Thursday (4/5).

Meanwhile, some banners with similar supporting tone for Gatot to run as a 2019 presidential candidate began to emerge. The banners were installed on a number of pedestrian bridges.

Gatot himself has openly declared his readiness to become a presidential candidate. According to him, after 36 years serving as a TNI soldier, he will always be prepared to re-devote his body and soul to the nation.

"I tell [you] now that I am a civilian, have equal rights, right to be voted and to vote. Once again, if this republic calls and the people want me to be president, I am ready to be President," he said some time ago.
