Jakarta Governor Djarot Saiful Hidajat: Pak Jokowi, Pak Ahok And Myself Are One Unity

Tuesday, July 11 2017 00:00 WIB

SWORN in last month, Jakarta Governor Djarot Saiful Hidajat only has four more months before he leaves office and hands over the post to governor-elect Anies Baswedan. Djarot is Jakarta's third governor in the 2012-2017 period: the first governor Joko Widodo was elected President in 2014, and his successor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama resigned following his religious blasphemy conviction in early May.

Racing against time in his brief term, Djarot, previously the deputy governor, is trying to speed up the programs he and Basuki put together, such as the construction of the child-friendly integrated public parks and the revamping of the Old Town and Taman Ismail Marzuki. This former mayor of Blitar, East Java, also keeps a tight rein on the financial system to prevent fictitious programs from making their way into the regional budget. ¡°Massive projects like the construction of the mass rapid transit system, the light rail transit system and the Asian Games 2018 arena are still underway, but we are making sure they are going according to schedule," Djarot, 55, stresses.
