President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo held his first press conference as President of the Republic yesterday afternoon at around 2 PM. He was accompanied by the TNI Commander, the Chiefs of Staff, the National Police Chief, and Head of Intelligence. The President spoke of the security briefing he had just received and he too addressed questions on his cabinet. The President said that he would do his best to announce his cabinet as soon as he could and that he would remain cautious in making his decision. No commitment on time and place for the cabinet announcement was made. This was in stark contrast with the Vice President’s remark delivered separately, around the same time with the President’s press conference.To subscribe please click here
