Dahnil Azhar Simanjuntak, the spokesman for President-elect Prabowo Subianto, earlier revealed Prabowo's idea to form a presidential club with members of living former presidents.

The formation of the club, Dahnil continued, is expected that former presidents can continue to meet regularly and discuss strategic national issues.
