Date 2 Oktober 2019
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo admitted that he had received many proposals, especially from his volunteers, regarding his second-term presidential inauguration, which is to move it forward from 20 October to 19 October.
“I got many proposals from the volunteers to push forward (the inauguration) to 19 October. But this is the authority of the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR),” President Jokowi told reporters after attending the 2019 National Batik Day, at Puro Mangkunegaran, Solo, Central Java, Wednesday (2/10).
The President will discuss the matter with the new Speaker of MPR who will be inaugurated tomorrow. “I will hand this matter to them,” he said. (HIM/RAH/ES)
