TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Chairman of the Central Executive Board of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) Andreas Pareira asked President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo to immediately save the country’s economy.
He said that serious efforts must be made if seen from the achievement of Indonesia’s economic growth in the first quarter that is below target.
“Global economy does affect the national economy but we should be independent, in line with the principles of Nawacita," Andrea said in Cibubur on Saturday,
He also urged President Jokowi to reshuffle his ministers with poor performances. However, he said that PDI-P would not blame the performance of economic ministers. According to Andreas, the party and Jokowi’s royal supporters will leave the decision to reshuffle the cabinet to Jokowi.
