Governorship

When East Java held a gubernatorial election in 2008, Soekarwo announced his candidacy and was supported by Partai Amanat Nasional (PAN) and Partai Demokrat (Democratic Party). His running-mate was Saifullah Yusuf or Gus Ipul, a former minister in President Yudhoyono's cabinet. The election was interesting. Soekarwo won the first round with 26% votes, but because no candidate won over 30%, a second round had to be held. Soekarwo won again but with a closer margin. His rival, Khofifah, demanded a new round after alleged election fraud. A third round was held and was again won by Soekarwo. Finally, Soekarwo was sworn in on February where supposedly he has sworn in before new year.

Now, he is running for re-election in the 2013 gubernatorial election. After many speculations about his running mate, Soekarwo announced that Saifullah Yusuf would again be his running-mate for this second term.
