The planned inauguration of Jakarta governor-elect Anies Baswedan will be held simultaneously with the reassignment of Yogyakarta Special Region Governor Sultan Hamengkubuwono X, an official at the Home Ministry has confirmed.

Sumarsono, the ministry's regional autonomy director, said both Anies and Hamengkubuwono X will be inaugurated by President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo at the State Palace in Central Jakarta on Oct. 16.

The ceremony will include their deputies, Sandiaga Uno and Paku Alam X.

"It is a fixed plan. It has been included in the President's schedule," said Sumarsono on Wednesday.
