Joko “Jokowi” Widodo will discuss Cabinet formation soon, a politician has said.

The Jokowi-Ma’ruf Amin campaign team’s deputy secretary, Verry Surya Hendrawan, said Jokowi would meet with political party leaders to discuss the Cabinet formation.

“That [Cabinet formation] will be discussed in a meeting [between Jokowi] and [coalition] leaders soon,” Verry told Tempo.co on Tuesday.

Names from political parties have circulated for possible ministerial seats. 

Jokowi held a meeting at Bogor Palace on Tuesday, during which he discussed memorable moments during his 10-month campaign.  

“He told [us] about when he delivered a speech in the rain in Tegal [Central Java],” Verry said.

Jokowi thanked campaign team members for their hard work and his hope of maintaining a good relationship, especially with Prabowo Subianto and Sandiaga Uno voters, said the Indonesian Justice and Unity Party’s (PKPI) secretary-general. (asp)
