Jokowi picks Ma’ruf Amin as VP candidate

JAKARTA (RambuPolitic) – In a last minute change, the incumbent President Joko Widodo picks Mar’uf Amin as vice president candidate, a muslim scholar, in the 2019 Presidential Election.

The announcement came as a surprise given earlier sources and political party officials have said that the President has picked Mahfud Md, a former Constitutional Court judge.

The pair will compete with Prabowo Subianto and his most likely partner Sandiaga Uno, current Jakarta City vice governor.

Mar’uf Amin is currently the Head of the Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI).
