Hatta is the Chairman of the National Mandate Party which has a base of support among the Muhammadiyah . Therefore , he said , Prabowo - Hatta need someone who can be used as a tool to secure the NU sound in the presidential election of 2014. Mahfud MD is considered as the right person to be the voice of Nahdliyin towing .
Besides Mahfud MD , pair carried by six parties , namely Gerindra , PAN , PKS , Golkar Party , the United Development Party , and the Party of the Moon star , is supported also by the Chairman of Central Board of Nahdlatul Ulama Said Aqil Siroj . This, according to Burhanuddin , will further help Prabowo - Hatta to hook sounds NU .
However , Burhanuddin reminded , the sound of the local kiai should also be considered because it still has influence among the Nahdliyin . " It could be a local kiai Jokowi support , " he said .
