Jakarta Secretary Admits Absence of Deputy Increases Governor’s Burden

Governor of Jakarta, Anies Baswedan.

JAKARTA, NNC - Regional Secretary of Jakarta Provincial Government, Saefullah, admitted that the vacant position of Deputy Governor would certainly add to the workload of Governor Anies Baswedan.

"The workload must be added, because there is no Deputy Governor," Saefullah said on Wednesday (12/26/2018).

As of now, there is still no certainty regarding who would fill the position of the Deputy Governor ofJakarta, the successor to Sandiaga Uno. For more than four months, Governor Anies Baswedan has been leading Jakarta alone without a deputy.

Saefullah emphasized that as an echelon I official of the Jakarta Provincial Government he continued to carry out his duties. Service to the Capital City must be a priority because it is a form of service, one example is by being the ceremonial inspector duing the Mother’s Day commemoration activity at the National Monument on Wednesday (12/26). Normally, the Deputy Governor should be the ceremony inspector.

"We have pledged to serve the community, we cannot be tired, we enjoy serving the community," he said.
