The results of this study indicate that the NU Muslimat Network can be put to good use by Khofifah Indar Parawansa to make him the Governor of East Java in 2018. This can be seen from two aspects, first is that Khofifah Indar Parawansa has a considerable influence in the Muslimat NU organization. Second, the adherence of NU's Muslimat supporters to Khofifah shows her dominance in the organization. With Khofifah's already strong influence and dominance among Muslimat NU, the Muslimat NU network can implement a resource mobilization strategy to ensure Khofifah Indar Parawansa's victory in the gubernatorial election.
