Tempo - November 9, 2017

Chitra Paramesti, Jakarta Former Head of the synchronization team for Anies-Sandi, Sudirman Said claims that he has never witnessed the Governor and Deputy Governor sign a political contract with the labor's union during the pair's gubernatorial campaign.

"I never saw such document," said Sudirman during a telephone interview on Wednesday, November 8.

Asked further about the matter, Sudirman Said said that he currently is no longer a part of the team that was formed before Anies Baswedan was inaugurated as Governor of Jakarta. "It's best that I don't speak any further," he continued.

Previously, the President of the Indonesian Labors Union Confederacy (KSPI) Said Iqbal accused Governor Anies Baswedan and Deputy Sandiaga Uno for being deceitful.

Said Iqbal claims that Anies Baswedan and Sandiaga Uno lied several times towards labors regarding Jakarta's 2018 minimum wage policy that would not refer to Government Regulation No 78/2015. The second lie, according to Said Iqbal,is that Anies-Sandi promised to hold a discussion together with the city's businessmen regarding the minimum wage.

Said Iqbal claims that there are several other lies that was conducted by Anies Sandi regarding minimum wage in Jakarta. Such as the incentives given to labors that would let labors use the Transjakarta bus services for free and discounts for shopping in PD Pasar Jaya that was issued by former Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama or Ahok through Governor's Regulation No 160/2016.

"That was the regulation issued by Ahok, both (Anies-Sandi) merely acted as if they were the heroes," Said Iqbal explained.
