Quotes

"Things are still fluid. Jokowi's advantage is that he does not have a burden from the past, like strained relations with leaders of parties his current coalition may get additional backing from" Dimas Oky Nugroho of research outfit Akar Rumput Strategic Consulting told The Straits Times
...But the final call on Cabinet appointments, as on key policy decisions, will be his, he stresses. "We have a presidential system. I am the sole chief executive" he said
...But as Agus Widjojo, a retired general and advisor to the new president, is quick to point out, "Joko is OK to let others make contributions and have successes." And with many of Jokowi's opponents likely to jump ship from Prabowo's coalition, Jokowi may have more opportunities for successful outreach
"Not all the people around Jokowi are capable, not all are good and they should not be given a free ride in the new administration" he added
