The replacement for former Deputy Chairperson of the anti-graft body Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) Lili Pintauli Siregar is still in process, according to President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo.

“It is still in process. The replacement for Lili Pintauli is still in process. We just received her resignation letter and I signed [the Presidential Decree] last week,” the President said, adding that candidates to replace Lili Pintauli would be submitted to the House of Representatives (DPR RI).  (FID/AIT/UN) (AS/EP)
