The House of Representatives has chosen Doni Primanto Joewono to fill the third-most senior position at Bank Indonesia (BI).

The economist-by-training will assume the post of central bank deputy governor as a successor to Erwin Rijanto, whose tenure ended in June.

Hendrawan Supratikno, a member of House Commission XI overseeing financial affairs, made the announcement at a meeting in Jakarta on Monday.

“He was chosen through acclamation and through consensus,” said Hendrawan, an Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) politician, as reported by Kompas.com.

Doni was interviewed by lawmakers on July 8.

A native of Surabaya, East Java, Doni, 55, began working for BI in 1991 as a staffer at the monetary management department. He has held several positions as BI representative in cities around Java. He last headed BI’s human resources department.

Doni’s was one of three names presented by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo to the House last month as candidates for BI deputy governor, along with Aida S. Budiman and Juda Agung. His tenure will run until 2025.

BI is run by a board of governors. The governor is supported by his senior deputy governor, as well as four, or a maximum of seven, deputy governors.
