Jakarta’s civil servants will be able to go home early during Ramadhan.

Governor Anies Baswedan has issued a decree stating that the city administration’s civil servants will work half days throughout the holy month.

Civil servants should be present at the office at 7 a.m. and will be allowed to go home at 2 p.m. The regulation applies from Monday to Thursday. On Friday, they should be at work by 7 a.m. and leave at 2:30 p.m.

“The decree has not been changed since last year. It’s aimed at giving civil servants the chance to better observe their religious activities,” Anies said on Tuesday as reported by wartakota.tribunnews.com.

Anies’ deputy, Sandiaga Uno, called on his team to maintain their performance while fasting.

“I hope the new working hours do not disrupt our services for Jakartans,” he said.

Muhammadiyah has announced that the first day of Ramadhan will fall on Thursday, while Nahdlatul Ulama, the nation’s biggest Muslim organization, will to announce its decision later on Tuesday.(vla)
