President-elect Prabowo Subianto launched the idea of establishing a presidential club as a communication forum between himself and former Indonesian presidents, chiefly aimed at discussing future strategy for the Indonesian nation.

Prabowo hopes that through this presidential club, former presidents can continue to be connected so they can share their experiences and thoughts in dealing with various challenges that the Indonesian nation will face.

Through this formation, it is believed that State dignitaries − both those who are already retired and who are still in office − can display their fighting spirit and build good relations in strengthening national unity.

However, there is no clear picture regarding the formation of this association so far although such a concept is practiced in several countries.

Prabowo has hopes on the establishment of the presidential club. First, integration of national leadership, I.e. bringing former presidents into the club to strengthen national leadership who are united with a common commitment to the interests of the people and the country, as well as increasing people’s trust in the government.

Second, a place to exchange experiences and ideas, i.e. it is a place to unite various generations of presidency and share lessons, experiences and strategies for the progress of the country.

Third, harmonize the relationship between the former president and the government in power. Through this forum, the relationship between the former president and the current president can be maintained so that a stronger relationship can be established.

Fourth, a forum for discussing national strategy issues. The forum can be an effective place to explore complex national strategic issues including economy, politics, environment and security. Through the involvement of former presidents, it can help identify problems and find solutions to the challenges currently faced by the country.
