Abstract

Populism is currently on the rise as many people talk. Both in the Western world and the Asian region. Today many political figures use populism strategies as their political ammunition on the political stage. In Indonesia itself, there was once a populist leader who was charismatic and close to the people, namely Mr. Indonesian Proclaimer, Ir. Sukarno. Now the phenomenon of populism reappeared during the 2014 and presidential election contestants, Jokowi against Prabowo were both showing a populist character, but the political contest was won by Jokowi. In this 2019 General Election, the political stage was again attended by the same two presidential candidates as the previous period. This paper will discuss Prabowo in his campaigns ahead of the General Election. This paper argues that Prabowo relied on his skills to improve the state order that needed reliable leadership abilities and brought Indonesia towards a better direction.
