Jakarta: President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo will appoint several deputy ministers on Friday, October 25, 2019. The inauguration will be held at the Presidential Palace.
"That's right (the President will inaugurate the deputy minister), at 14.00 Western Indonesian Time (WIB)," said Heru Budi Hartono's Head of the President’s Secretariat on Friday, October 25, 2019.
Jokowi will summon the deputy ministerial candidates before being appointed. The same thing was done by the Head of State before announcing and inaugurating the ministers of the Indonesian Cabinet.
Jokowi confirmed several times regarding the existence of the deputy minister position. The deputy minister positions will be occupied with professional figures and politicians.
"So, actually the list of candidates has been completed. Some from political parties, others from professional fields," Jokowi said to reporters at the Merdeka Palace, Jakarta on Thursday, October 24, 2019.
Jokowi did not want to reveal the number of deputy ministers to be elected. He only ensured that there would be a deputy minister candidate from Papua. Jokowi also emphasized that the deputy ministers had capabilities that supported the work of the cabinet of the Indonesian Cabinet.
