Surabaya University (Unair) political observer Fahrul Muzaqqi stated that the votes from Nahdliyin were the key to determining the winner in the 2024 Presidential Election (Pilpres) battle.
"Of course, I am sure that is the determinant for Nahdliyin because his vote is very majority in the context of the presidential election," Fahrul said as quoted by ANTARA, Wednesday, September 27.
Fahrul said that so far only the Anies Baswedan-Muhaimin Iskandar or "AMIN" pair has the potential to reap Nahdliyin's voice.
This was due to the factor in the existence of the General Chairperson of the National Awakening Party (PKB) Muhaimin Iskandar and his party.
However, this condition could change when two other presidential candidates, namely Ganjar Pranowo and Prabowo Subianto, were able to cooperate with the prospective vice presidential candidate from the Nahdliyin circle.
"If Pak Ganjar and Pak Prabowo both take representatives from the Nahdliyin circle, then the competition will change," he said.
The existence of prospective vice presidential candidates from Nahdliyin for Prabowo and Ganjar is predicted to have the potential to erode the voices of these groups, which so far are closely related to the "AMIN" pair camp.
"Cak Imin (Muhaimin Iskandar) has automatically been left behind, it remains only for these two candidates to take representatives from Nahdliyin or not," he said.

Meanwhile, political observer from Trunojoyo Madura University, Surokim Abdussalam, assessed that Nahdliyin's voice was natural to be contested by every contestant in the 2024 presidential election, because it was based on the large number of figures who had a large mass base.
"There are a lot of figures who have soap operas, Nahdliyin and Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) residents, it's natural that Nahdliyin's voice is contested," he said.
Nevertheless, Surokim predicts that presidential candidates will have difficulties if they have the ambition to get Nahdliyin's voice in its entirety.
"The sound of Nahdliyin is spread across many circles, including parties," he said.
