jpnn.com, JAKARTA - Prabowo Subianto dikabarkan meminta jatah tujuh menteri termasuk menteri pertahanan saat makan siang di restoran Jepang, bersama Menteri Koordinator Kemaritiman Luhut Binsar Panjaitan, 6 April 2018.

Kabar itu dilansir media asing, Asia Times dalam artikel berjudul Indonesia Moving Toward a One-Horse Race, yang menyebut permintaan itu sebagai syarat Prabowo bergabung dengan koalisi Joko Widodo di Pilpres 2019.

Berikut petikan tulisan di Asia Times:

Maritime Coordinating Minister Luhut Panjaitan, the president’s chief political adviser and a long retired special forces general himself, has met his once-bitter rival three times in the past few weeks to discuss his political plans.

That has given rise to widespread speculation that Prabowo and Widodo might join forces. Sources familiar with the conversation say at the first two meetings Panjaitan urged Prabowo to run, in the belief that it is better to compete against the rival you know than the one you don’t.

At the third meeting over a Japanese lunch on April 6, Panjaitan raised the possibility of a joint Widodo-Prabowo ticket, but reportedly lost his appetite after Prabowo said he would consider it if he was put in charge of the military and was given seven seats in any new Cabinet.

Under Indonesia’s current chain-of-command arrangement, the national police is directly under the president, given its role in internal security and related counterterrorism issues, while the armed forces reports to the defense minister.
