The incumbent Governor of Jakarta Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama has been non-active ever since the start of the campaign season. He’s due to return to office this coming February 11. The problem is that Ahok is currently facing a blasphemy trial, and for that the Ministry of Home Affairs could decide to yet again declare the Governor non-active for the purpose of facing the law. Some politicians have asked the Ministry to do just that, but the Ministry has not yet decided on the matter. They’re still in deliberation. So in the mean time, let us ask the Ministry to consider this: there are regional leaders who are still working even though they’re standing trial for graft. On one particular case, a regional leader was even sworn in in prison. In that context, the Ministry of Home Affairs might want to be extra careful.To subscribe please click here
