Date 14 Juni 2019
President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has said he is ready for a reconciliation meeting with Presidential and Vice Presidential Candidates Prabowo Subianto and Sandiaga Uno.
“Yes, (the meeting) can be held anywhere, even while riding horses, in Yogyakarta, or while riding the MRT (Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit),” the President told reporters after visiting Sukawati Market and the temporary location of Sukawati Art Market in Gianyar, Bali, Friday (14/6).
The President’s statement came in response to the advice from Yogyakarta Governor Sri Sultan Hamengku Buwono X during the Presidents visit to Yogyakarta, Saturday (6/6).
