For some people, power may be pleasurable so they want it to be extended. In fact, the actual enjoyment is in how to leave that seat of power well with a legacy that benefits all people, the nation and the state.

Ahead of the speech of Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) chairwoman Megawati Soekarnoputri at the 50th anniversary commemoration of the PDI-P on 10 Jan. 2023, various speculations had developed. A number of politicians indicated that there would be a surprise from Megawati.

Many people thought the surprise would be in the form of an announcement from Megawati regarding the PDI-P’s 2024 presidential. The rumors grew stronger after House of Representatives (DPR) Speaker Puan Maharani, who also chairs the PDI-P’s central executive board (DPP), stated that the name of the presidential candidate the PDI-P would back was already in Megawati’s hands (Kompas, 9/1/2023).
