Date 8 Juli 2020
The Government has announced President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo will attend the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) Annual Session on 14 August this year.
“The MPR normally holds the annual session every 16 August; however, since this year the usual date falls on Sunday, we move it forward to 14 August,” MPR Speaker Bambang Soesatyo said Wednesday (8/7).
Bambang also expressed gratitude for the President’s willingness to be present at the annual event, adding that the President’s decision reflects his effort to adapt to the new normal.
“The Government should continue to work for the nation and the people despite this challenging situation and surely by following strict health protocols,” Bambang said. (HIM/EN)
