The decision was taken by PDIP chairwowan Megawati Soekarnoputri during the 3rd PDIP National Work Meeting. It was confirmed by PDI Perjuangan's official twitter account shortly afterward.

"PDI Perjuangan leader has officially used her prerogative right to nominate Joko Wiodo as a prediential candidate for the 2019-2024 period," it said.
