JFCC Speaker Event: Sandiaga Uno
Members and Friends,
Indonesians will head for the second round of the Jakarta election on April 19
to choose the governor of the sprawling capital. Two months ago, none of the
candidates obtained the majority of votes required to win outright, leading to
the upcoming run-off. The Jakarta election has been widely seen as a test for
religious tolerance in Indonesia, a country with the world’s largest Muslim
population, as well as a proxy battle for the national stage.
Purnama, the incumbent governor who is seeking re-election while on trial for
allegedly insulting the Koran, will be pitted against former education minister
Anies Baswedan. Baswedan’s running mate, Sandiaga Uno, co-founded private
equity firm Saratoga Capital, which had invested in assets spanning energy and
resources, infrastructure and telecommunication.
the Jakarta Foreign Correspondents Club for a discussion with Mr. Sandiaga on
his team’s vision for Jakarta and how they aim to achieve it.
