On National Press Day 2024, Governor Khofifah Invites Press Personnel to Make Peaceful Elections a Reality

Surabaya, InfoPublik – The Governor of East Java, Khofifah Indar Parawansa, invited all members of the press to take part in realizing the 2024 Democratic Peaceful Election. He conveyed this right on the occasion of National Press Day (HPN) which falls on February 9 2024 today.

According to him, the press has a very important role in maintaining conducive political tension at the time of the election. For this reason, he also strongly supports the theme of HPN 2024, namely Guarding the National Leadership Transition and Maintaining the Integrity of the Nation.

“The theme of this year’s HPN is our shared enthusiasm to realize peaceful elections in 2024. So that Indonesia gets the best leaders and after the elections all parties can work together to develop Indonesia together,” he explained in Surabaya, Friday (9/2/2024).

The role of members of the press is also the same as that of the TNI and Polri in maintaining election conduciveness. If the TNI and Polri maintain election conduciveness with their troops, then members of the press maintain conduciveness with the ink of their pens.

Members of the press can maintain a peaceful, friendly and harmonious election atmosphere through journalistic products which are produced every day and become a source of information consumed by the public.

“Information will be able to influence a person’s views, perspectives, thoughts and actions. “It will be less conducive if incorrect information spreads to the outside community,” he said.

“For this reason, news must be confirmed as true and its impact carefully considered before it is distributed. “So that there will be no negative turmoil in the midst of this moment of democratic celebration,” he added.

Governor Khofifah also believes that members of the press will produce quality journalism products in accordance with the journalistic code of ethics. This quality journalism will be a reference for the public to fight hoax information that is being spread.

“I am sure that members of the press will always uphold their journalistic code of ethics. “Press personnel will always be independent, balanced, current and factual in producing news,” he said.

He also invited the public not to immediately believe information spread on social media. However, you must always check the validity of the information.

“Always check and review information. The simple way is to look for news from trusted media regarding this information. “If the information is not true, stop sharing it with other people,” he said.

“Let’s together maintain the conduciveness of the nation, celebrate the democratic party with joy, and make the 2024 Peaceful Election a reality,” he concluded. (MC Jatim/ida/toeb)
