President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Today we are in Bandung to distribute wage subsidy for workers. Of the 14.6 million recipients allocated by the Government, the number of recipients has already reached 8.4 million recipients or 65.6 percent of the total number. It will continue until 100 percent. The same goes to cash assistance for fuel. We have already distributed it and it is almost finished.

Sir, there are many complaints from the public regarding performance of the National Police. The public even urged you to replace Head of the Police. In your opinion, when is the best time to replace the Police Head?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)
I see that the Police are still working hard to help and serve the people. That’s what I see. Head of the Indonesian Police is still Listyo Sigit Prabowo.

Reporter
When will you replace him?

President of the Republic of Indonesia (Joko Widodo)

Reporter
Sir, what is the topic for tomorrow’s meeting with high-level Police officers?
