Ruling party the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) denies involvement in a financial fiasco faced by state-owned insurance company Asuransi Jiwasraya. PDI-P secretary-general Hasto Kristiyanto slammed an allegation that the Jiwasraya insolvency case was a way to get money to support President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo's campaign in the 2019 presidential election. “We are against any form of financial manipulation. So the law must be upheld and no one can hide behind power,” he said in Jakarta on Thursday. He even said the party supported the formation of a special committee (Pansus) to investigate the Jiwasraya case at the House of Representatives. “If we have to support [the Pansus formation] to make it happen, we’ll do it,” he stressed.
