For the record, based on the 1945 Constitution, a person can be elected as President two times for a total of ten years.
However, the amendment proposal said that it is possible for a person to be elected three times for a total of fifteen years, one time for a total of eight years, and others.
President Jokowi said that he is worry that the proposal would carry much broader issues.
“Thus, I am against it,” the President firmly said. (HIM/ES)
