At that time, Basuki alias Ahok planned to advance to the Pilkada with Heru through an independent route. However, on the next trip, Ahok decided to go forward with Djarot Syaiful Hidayat with the support of political parties.
"He (Heru) really understands about Jakarta, I happen to know him well from below," said Taufik.
Meanwhile, Jury Ardiantoro is also considered to have the capability because he has served as the Chair of the DKI Jakarta Provincial KPUD.
The jury even had time to lead the Central KPU to replace the late Husni Kamil Manik who died due to illness, for the remaining 2016-2017 positions.
Taufik said that Juri Ardiantoro was also a nahdiyin. He is the Chancellor of the Indonesian Nahdlatul Ulama University (Unusia) Jakarta for the 2021-2025 period who was inaugurated in September 2021 by the then General Chair of PBNU KH Said Aqil Siraj.
"I know the jury well, I think the jury is also capable. Although the jury has never (became a bureaucrat in the DKI Provincial Government), yes, but I think the jury understands about Jakarta. He is the (former) chairman of the DKI Jakarta KPU," said Taufik.
Finally, the name that is said to be the acting governor is Marullah Matali. His work in the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government began in 1996.
The former South Jakarta Mayor who was born on November 27, 1965, has filled various positions, as staff of the DKI Jakarta Provincial Mental Spiritual Development Bureau, Head of the Mental Institution Development Section of the DKI Jakarta Bintal and Social Welfare Service, and Section Head of the Mental Development Service of the Bintal and Social Welfare Service. DKI Jakarta.
Later, he served as Head of the Sub-Department of Mental Spiritual Development at the Jakarta Bintal and Social Welfare Service, Head of the Secretariat of the DKI Jakarta Provincial Social Service, and Head of the DKI Jakarta Provincial Education and Mental Bureau.
Prior to serving as Mayor of South Jakarta, Marullah served as Assistant to the Deputy Governor of DKI Jakarta Province for Tourism and Assistant to the Deputy Governor of DKI Jakarta Province for Population Control.
On January 18, 2021, Marullah Matali replaced Sri Haryati, who became the acting Regional Secretary of the DKI Jakarta Province after the DKI Jakarta Secretary Saefullah died, and has served until now.
Taufik said Marullah was a nahdiyin. He is listed in the management of the DKI Jakarta PWNU 2021-2026 as Deputy Chair of the Tanfidziyah Daily Management.

Therefore, Taufik believes that NU will not interfere in the election of the acting governor of DKI later.
"Those three are NU, Mr. Marullah NU, NU Jury, Heru, and NU. I think this is the case with the PJ Governor, it's the president's right. Yes, we shouldn't interfere in the president's sphere," said Taufik.
