Chairman of the Nasdem Party, Surya Paloh, escorts PDI-P DPP Chairperson Puan Maharani to the vehicle after their meeting at Nasdem Tower, Jakarta, Monday (22/8/2022).

The latest story on the front stage is the meeting between General Chairperson of the Nasdem Party, Surya Paloh, and Chairperson of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P), Puan Maharani, in Jakarta on Monday. The meeting of 2.5 hours was private and became Puan's first step to meet with leaders of other political parties.

As politicians, Surya and Puan compliment each other. Symbolically, the meeting implied that there is no rift between the two parties. The PDI-P General Chairwoman Megawati Soekarno Putri did not accompany her daughter. President Joko β€œJokowi” Widodo, who is also a PDI-P cadre, did not participate. Two days earlier, Surya met President Jokowi at the State Palace in Jakarta.
