Jakarta: The Jakarta Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) returned to normal operations a day after clashes broke out between protesters and police officers during anti-Job Creation Law rallies.
On Thursday, protests occured in several areas in Jakarta, including the Sudirman-Thamrin area. As a result, PT MRT Jakarta, the operator of the Jakarta MRT, decided to close down 13 stations.
"Today the Jakarta MRT will be operational from 05.00 a.m. until 07.00 p.m.," said PT MRT Jakarta Corporate Secretary Division Head Muhammad Kamaluddin in a statement on Friday.
Protests flared up in Jakarta and other regions in Indonesia after the Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR) passed the controverial Omnibus Bill on Job Creation into law.
Earlier today, Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said that as many as 20 TransJakarta bus stops were damaged during anti-Job Creation Law rallies in Indonesia's capital yesterday.
"We will immediately repair the damaged bus stops after we finish the reviewing process," Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said.
