TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Deputy Governor of Jakarta Ahmad Riza Patria said that the development in Jakarta would continue even though the nation's capital city was moved to East Kalimantan. According to him, the planned development program will not be reduced.

"Because Jakarta's burden is still huge and the transfer process doesn't just happen right away," said Riza at the City Hall, Central Jakarta, Indonesia, Tuesday, January 18, 2022.

Riza explained that it would take time to move the nation's capital, starting from infrastructure, ecosystems, to social aspects, education, health, and tourism. "It takes time and a long process," he said.

Concept of Future Jakarta 

The House of Representatives (DPR) officially passed the Draft Law or Bill on the State Capital City into law on January 18. This ratification was carried out at the 13th Plenary Meeting of the House of Representatives for the Third Session Period for the 2021-2022 Session Year.

Riza said that the Jakarta Provincial Government was working on the concept of a future Jakarta after the nation's capital city moved to East Kalimantan. In fact, he continued, Governor Anies Baswedan has asked experts to be involved in the discussion.

He said the law on the specificity of Jakarta would also be revised. The regulation regarding the specificity of Jakarta is enshrined in Law Number 29 of 2007 concerning the Provincial Government of the Special Capital Region of Jakarta as the Capital of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia.

Previously, the Expert Staff for Institutional Relations of the Ministry of National Development Planning/National Development Planning Agency (PPN/Bappenas), Diani Sadia Wati, revealed that the Jakarta government had proposed a revision of Law 29/2007 concerning the Provincial Government of the Special Capital City Region of Jakarta as the Capital of the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia.
