DKI Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan admitted that he was happy to be in charge of leading the capital city with the Deputy Governor of DKI Jakarta, Ahmad Riza Patria. Anies likens his duet with a Gerindra politician to a doubles badminton player.
This was conveyed by Anies while attending the Jakarta Governor’s Gathering with the Regional Leadership Coordination Forum (Forkopimda) at the Great Hall of DKI Jakarta City Hall, Jl Medan Selatan, Central Jakarta, Thursday (6/10/2022).
The event was also attended by a number of parties, including Ahmad Riza Patria, Metro Jaya Police Chief Inspector General Fadil Imran, Jaya Regional Commander Major General Untung Budiharto, Head of the DKI Jakarta High Prosecutor’s Office Reda Manthovani and a number of members of the DKI Jakarta DPRD.
“I’m also lucky because my partner is Mr. Deputy Governor. It’s just like a double-pair badminton player,” said Anies.
Their terms of office will end on October 16. Ahmad Riza Patria himself has been serving in Jakarta since 2020 replacing the previous Deputy Governor, Sandiaga Uno.
Anies said that in their work, the two of them did not need to share with each other. Because, both of them already understand each other and communicate smoothly like a double pair badminton player.
“If I’m on the right, he’s on the left. If I’m going forward, he’s backwards. If there’s a smash he’s the one who picks it up, if the ball is easy, he hits it. So there’s no need to share it with each other, sir, the tektok has worked,” he continued.
Anies also views that Riza and himself do not need to dictate to each other. Because, each one of them already knows his own duty because chemistry already awake.
“So I feel right, sir. I feel that working together with the Deputy Governor is a collaboration that does not need to write to each other, sir, who is working, has directly connected chemistry,” he said.
