TEMPO.CO, JakartaFormula E chief executive Ahmad Sahroni said his side would send a letter to the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) to ask it to monitor the electric vehicle race in Jakarta. He added he would also ask the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to keep an eye on the preparations of Formula E.

“As for the KPK, I will arrange a meeting with the committee to ask for accompaniment and strict monitoring. And not only the KPK, but also the BPK,” he said after a meeting with Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan at the City Hall in Central Jakarta, Monday, November 29, 2021.

Sahroni said his side would ask the BPK to get involved in the auditing of Formula E, and that the KPK should join in the implementation of Formula E to avert political maneuvers of certain parties—what with the fact that the race is held not only as a sporting event, but also a branding event for Indonesia before the world.

The KPK’s involvement is necessary to directly oversee it [Formula E] and prevent possible misuse of state money and politicization,” he said.

Earlier, Indonesian Motorsports Association (IMI) chairman Bambang Soesatyo confirmed the Formula E race would take place in Jakarta in June 2022 despite ongoing KPK investigation.
