JAKARTA: If Indonesian Vice-President Jusuf Kalla does decide to run for President under Golkar's banner in July, he may have the Islamic-based Prosperous Justice Party (PKS) on his side.
Last night, Mr Kalla, who is also chairman of Golkar, Indonesia's largest political party, was invited to PKS' headquarters in south Jakarta to speak at the party's weekly dialogue.
'Talks on a possible coalition need to begin early,' PKS chairman Tifatul Sembiring told the session. 'We declared Bapak Hidayat our presidential candidate, but that can be revised.'
