House Speaker Praises Jokowi for Joining Friday Prayers at Monas

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - House of Representatives Speaker Setya Novanto expressed his appreciation to President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo for joining with participants of the Jakarta Rally today, Dec. 2, to perform the Friday Prayers at the National Monument (Monas) in Jakarta. Setya dubbed it was the right decision made by Jokowi.

“The decision was made [the President], and it was shown to the Indonesian people,” he said at his office on Friday, December 2, 2016.

According to Setya, the move would ensure peace among the public and he suggested other state leaders make it as an example. He added that it would convince foreign investors that the business sector would not be affected by the rally.

“Foreign investors and businesses were concerned with the rally, but nothing’s happened,” he added.

Setya revealed that the participants of the rally did not march to the House of Representatives since they agreed to hold the rally at Monas.

People’s Consultative Assembly Speaker Zulkifli Hasan said that the participants of the rally would not march to the House of Representatives. He said that any groups who would go to the lawmakers’ office were not parts of the rally.
