President Jokowi Asks All Policies Must be in Favor of Public
In another part of his introductory remarks at a Plenary Cabinet Meeting, at the Presidential Palace, Jakarta, on Tuesday (29/8) afternoon, President Joko Jokowi Widodo reminded all that Indonesia will enter the political year next year. Therefore, the President requested that all policies be earmarked for the public.
“It is my hope that the Ministers once again do not make new policies that have not been consulted to the public, not through the studies and deep calculations, which may result in the things that are not desirable of our society and make people disappointed,” the President said.
President Jokowi requested that programs that have been running well, such as Smart Indonesia Card (KIP), Healthy Indonesia Card (KIS), Aspiring Family Program (PKH), and the effectiveness of the distribution of Village Fund be maintained.
In addition, the President asked the Ministers and Heads of Institutions to ensure that what has been planned should meet the target and directly reach the needs of the community.
The Plenary Cabinet meeting was attended by Vice President Jusuf Kalla, all Working Cabinet Ministers, Heads of Institutions, and Attorney General Prasetyo. (FID/JAY/ES) (MUR/YM/Naster).
