Ignasius Jonan, Energy & Mineral Resources Minister:
If something is decided, it must be carried out
IGNASIUS Jonan was not unemployed for very long after he was dismissed as transportation minister by President Joko Widodo last July. He only had two months and a half to relax and unwind from his previous tension-filled job. On October 14, he returned to the cabinet with a new title: energy and mineral resources minister
According to Jonan, President Jokowi summoned him to his office sometime at the end…
I swear to God, swear to God," said Setya Novanto when he was asked if it was true there was Rp150 billion for the Golkar Party's coffers from money embezzled out of the e-KTP (electronic ID cards) in 2011. Without denying or confirming it, he held up his index and middle fingers to form a 'victory' sign.
Setya Novanto demonstrated this oath to Tempo editors when he visited this magazine's office on Wednesday last week, a day before the prosecution read the criminal charges filed in the massive corruption case surrounding the e-KTP project at the Jakarta Corruption Court.
