President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo met with the so-called National Movement to Safeguard the Indonesia Ulema Council’s Fatwa (GNPF-MUI) on Monday (Jun. 26). It’s an odd meeting given that the group (comprised of mostly hardline groups) organized the anti-Ahok rallies during the 201 7 Jakarta gubernatorial election. Then again, a day before that meeting, President Jokowi met with the elected Governor and Vice Governor of Jakarta Anies Baswedan and Sandiaga Uno. This is the first time the President met with the GNPF-MUI ‘s leaders as well as with Anies-Sandi. What can we learn from these encounters?To subscribe please click here
