Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: The National Awakening Party (PKB) is considering to support Sandiaga Uno or Yusril Ihza Mahendra in 2017 Jakarta gubernatorial election.

"We will see which one is stronger," PKB deputy secretary general Jazilul Fawaid told Metrotvnews.com on Tuesday (9/6/2016).

"We will make decision three days before the registration," he continued.

Sandiaga is one of the richest man in Indonesia. He led the Indonesian Young Enterpreneurs Association (HIPMI) in 2005-2008.

Meanwhile, Yusril is a senior politician and legal expert. He is known as an Islamist.

Incumbent Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama is still the strongest contender in the election. Almost all polls show he leads against the other competitors.
