JAKARTA, NETRALNEWS.COM - The welfare of the disabled people becomes one flagship program for the number one governor candidate, Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono (AHY).
In the final debate for pairs of governor and vice governor candidates at Bidakara Hotel Jakarta, Friday (2/10/2017), AHY pledged to improve infrastructure and education services for the disabled. In fact, AHY will recruit persons with disabilities to work in local government.
"We want to improve infrastructure facilities for people with disabilities. We also want to provide jobs by recruiting people with disabilities in local government," said AHY during the third debate for Jakarta Regional Head Election (Pilkada) at Bidakara Hotel, Friday (2/10/2017).
He assessed this time Jakarta still becomes a city that is not very friendly towards people with disabilities. Besides not being friendly to people with disabilities, the Jakarta’s portrait today, AHY added, is very unfriendly towards women. Frequent harassment of women is very common in the capital.
"Violence rate towards women and children in Jakarta remains the highest in Indonesia. Too often sexual harassment against women occurs," he explained. (*)
