Prabowo Back on Top, Passes Ganjar
Prabowo Subianto's returned to the top position after previously being overtaken by Ganjar Pranowo in regard to electability in the 2014 presidential election.
Based on the latest survey results by Kompas, in May 2023, Defense Minister Prabowo Subianto’s electability was recorded at 24.5 percent, Central Java Governor Ganjar Pranowo at 22.8 percent and former Jakarta governor Anies Baswedan at 13.6 percent. The votes for Prabowo increased significantly by 6.4 percent, from the previous 18.1 percent in January 2023 giving him top position. He had previously held this position, but from October 2022 to January 2023 it was taken by Ganjar.
Ganjar, who during the survey period from October 2019 to January 2023 showed a consistent increase in electability, has fallen back. With a 2.5 percent decrease from the January 2023 survey of 25.3 percent, Ganjar's electability is now in second place. Meanwhile, Anies' electability barely changed from the previous 13.1 percent, only up 0.5 percent.
