Jakarta Deputy Governor Sandiaga Uno has announced that there will be no open house at City Hall at Idul Fitri as civil servants should be allowed to enjoy their holiday without having to go to the office. 

“We want agency heads who have planned vacations to enjoy their holiday. They are not required [to come to work]. We don’t want the event to be a mere formality,” Sandiaga said on Monday as quoted by kompas.com.  

Former Jakarta governors such as Djarot Saiful Hidayat, Joko “Jokowi” Widodo and Fauzi Bowo held open houses at City Hall on the first day of Idul Fitri every year. 

Members of the public could attend and meet the governor and eat meals provided by the city administration. 

Sandiaga said he would instead hold a gathering with civil servants after the holiday period ended on June 21. (cal)
