Although the best minister is still Pak Prabowo Subianto, Erick number 2.

Jakarta ( – The latest Indo Barometer survey has placed Minister of State-Owned Enterprises (BUMN) Erick Thohir as the strongest candidate for vice president (cawapres) in the 2024 election.

“The name of our survey that has the highest score is Erick Thohir, the figure is 22 percent,” said Executive Director of Indo Barometer M. Qodari in Jakarta, Tuesday.

Qodari explained that Erick Thohir was in the top position with the acquisition of public electability of 22.9 percent, followed by East Java Governor Khofifah Indar Parawansa at 15.8 percent, and Muhaimin Iskandar 6.7 percent.

According to him, the reason for Erick Thohir’s high selection was seen as a form of public appreciation for his performance at the Ministry of BUMN.

This is reflected in the survey data which positioned Erick Thohir at the top as the best performing minister in the Jokowi-Ma’ruf Amin Indonesian Forward Cabinet at 9.0 percent or under Prabowo Subianto’s 12.4 percent. Furthermore, Sandiaga Uno 7.6 percent, Tri Rismaharini 5.7 percent, and Sri Mulyani 4.2 percent.

“One of the things that can be seen from the survey results is the assessment as one of the ministers with the best performance. Even though the best minister is still Pak Prabowo Subianto, Erick is number 2 then number 3 is Sandiaga Uno, then there is Risma and there is Sri Mulyani,” he said.

The interesting thing in the 2024 presidential election, he said, is that the cawapres figure will determine victory. Of the various names of presidential candidates currently circulating, there are only three names that are always at the top and the difference in their votes being elected is very thin.

“In my opinion the cawapres is very decisive because the electability of the three strongest presidential candidates today is slightly different, so the determining variable apart from Pak Jokowi is the vice presidential candidate,” he stressed.
