Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Four political parties that support incumbent Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok) in the 2017 Jakarta gubernatorial race have postponed a meeting about campaign team.

PDIP, Nasdem, Hanura and Golkar initially planned to hold the meeting on Tuesday (9/27). However, the parties cannot match their schedules.

Hanura politician Syarifuddin Sudding said they will conduct the meeting no later than Thursday (9/29). He confirmed they will appoint new campaign team chief.

"We will have new campaign team chief," he said in Jakarta on Tuesday (9/27).

Nasdem, Hanura and Golkar established a campaign team last month. The three parties picked Golkar politician Nusron Wahid as the campaign team chief.

However, PDIP threw its support to Ahok last week. Therefore, the campaign team should be rearranged.
