REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA — Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan refused to discuss about the figure who will replace Sandiaga Uno as Jakarta deputy governor. He also did not want to comment about criterias for the alternate.

According to Anies, the main focus for now is to help Sandiaga succeed in winning 2019 presidential election. Sandiaga resigned from his post at Jakarta Provincial Government to became Gerindra Party chief patron Prabowo Subianto’s running mate.

“Now we support Bang Sandi first until it’s complete, later we talk about who will replace his post,” said Anies at City Hall, Jakarta, on Friday (Aug 10).

Anies asked the public to not worry about the next tasks that should be carried out by deputy governor, inculding about Jakarta Provincial Government’s financial discussion.

“Insya Allah (God willing), the provincial government will immediately disburse budget needed to finance all the plans. There will be no interruption. Sandi paid great contribution to the budgeting process,” Anies added.

Sandiaga has officially resigned as Jakarta deputy governor on Friday (Aug 10). He also submitted his letter of resignation to DKI Jakarta Regional Legislative Council (DPRD).

“The letter said he resigned as Jakarta deputy governor as dated on August 9, 2018, ” said Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan on Friday (Aug 10).

Meanwhile, Sandiaga explained his letter submitted to DPRD DKI Jakarta. According to him, his resignation was related to his candidacy as vice president for 2019-2024 term, in accordance with Article 78 Law No. 23/2014 on Regional Government.

“I am Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno hereby submit letter of resignation as Jakarta deputy governor for 2017-2022 term since I sign this statement,” Sandiaga said.

Earlier, the opposition camp finally announced the pair of presidential and vice presidential candidate. Late on Thursday (Aug 9), Gerindra Party chief patron Prabowo Subianto declared himself as presidential candidate and Sandiaga as his running mate.

"Leaders of three political parties, namely Prosperous Justice Party (PKS), National Mandate Party (PAN), and Gerindra Party have decided and trusted me and Sandiaga to advance as presidential and vice presidential candidate for the 2019-2024 term,"  said Prabowo in a press conference on Thursday (Aug 9).

However, Prabowo demanded Sandiaga to give up his post in Jakarta Provincial Government. Sandiaga also should leave Gerindra Party to represent himself as independent candidate.

By doing so, Sandiaga would be more acceptable by all supporting parties. Sandiaga now is serving as Jakarta deputy governor and deputy chief of Gerindra Party Board of Trustees.
