Regarding his work program, Anies explained that his programs and activities are to ensure that the Governor of Jakarta is the Governor of all. “Governor for those who voted me and who did not because it is solely a decision-making mechanism to determine who the Governor is,” Anies said while asserting that as the Governor, the constitutional and moral mandates are for all citizens of Jakarta.
According to Anies, he and Sandiaga want Jakarta which is just, belongs to all, not belong to a group of people, not for those who have money only, but also for those who want to achieve prosperity. He added that Jakarta is a city for everyone.
