Jakarta: Chairperson of the NasDem Party Surya Paloh stressed his party is committed to being a part of the government coalition. NasDem has no intention of leaving the coalition.

In his speech, Surya Paloh spoke about his loyalty to Jokowi's government. Surya emphasized that NasDem's commitment to President Joko Widodo's government should not be doubted.
