, Jakarta – Presidential hopeful Prabowo Subianto plans to meet Sinta Nuriyah Wahid, the wife of late Indonesian president KH Abdurrahman Wahid (Gus Dur), in her residence in Ciganjur, South Jakarta, on Thursday afternoon.

Prabowo will also meet with Gus Dur`s second daughter, Zannubah Ariffah Chafsoh Rahman Wahid, popularly called Yenny Wahid.

Prabowo`s planned visit comes three days after his running mate Sandiaga Uno visited Shinta Wahid on Monday (10/9/2018).

During the visit, Sandiaga asked Yenny Wahid to join the Prabowo-Sandiaga pair`s campaign team by offering her the post of campaign manager.

“(I asked) Ms. Yenny to become our campaign manager. She said that is a good job and she would consider it,” he said.

Ahmad Muzani, secretary general of the Greater Indonesia Movement (Gerindra) Party of which Prabowo is general chairman, said earlier the Prabowo-Sandiaga coalition will persuade Yenny Wahid, who is now chief of foreign relations section of Islamic organization Nahdlatul Ulama (NU)`s women wing Muslimat, to join the Prabowo-Sandiaga pair`s campaign team.

Prabowo and Yenny have close relations because Yenny`s husband, Dhohir Farisi, is chief of the Gerindra Party executive board. (ibl)
