This is Dahlan Iskan’s point of view on the anger of President Joko Widodo




JAKARTA (RIAUSKY.COM) – President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) is furious! He expressed his annoyance when he instructed ministers and other heads of government agencies.

Jokowi said ministers and leaders of public institutions did not seem to have any feelings about the economic situation in Indonesia which was affected by the co-19, especially if they thought they were still working in an ordinary way. .

He alluded to how the allocated budget of 75 trillion rupees was only used at 1.53%.

No wonder Jokowi was disappointed. The country is in an emergency, the situation is extraordinary and abnormal. Jokowi said loud and clear, it is very dangerous for ministers and heads of government institutions to view the situation as poor and abide by the rules.

I was so annoyed Jokowi said, “I have to say what it is, there is no significant progress. Nothing!”. The sentence was pronounced by Jokowi during the evaluation of the ministers and the leaders of the institutions of the State which did not deal with the question of Covid-19.

Jokowi’s anger apparently occurred during the Cabinet plenary meeting on June 18, 2020. The video was not uploaded to the Presidential Secretariat’s YouTube channel until Sunday, June 28, 2020.

Suddenly, the video became a lively public conversation, including former Minister of State Enterprises (BUMN) during the period 2011-2014 Dahlan Iskan.

Dahlan also helped fight President Jokowi’s anger.

Dahlan explained, this is the style of Javanese descendants of Jokowi, angry. Aggravation and anger conveyed from the podium. Then abundantly drag the sentences in high notes.

Jokowi, according to Dahlan, was really angry and disappointed with all of his subordinates. Expect subordinates to work extraordinarily and creatively to overcome the economic problems affected by the corona pandemic (covid-19), but in reality, subordinates are afraid of a myriad of regulations that can lead them to jail.

Like what Dahlan saw Jokowi’s anger, see the full article cited on Dahlan’s personal blog, Here is the full text:

Great mood

The big news this week is about the big anger. Which angered a president: Pak Jokowi. What his own men rebuked: ministers and heads of government institutions.

Interestingly, the anger was already a few days ago. But the video was not put online until last Sunday. Via YouTube.

His angry style is very Javanese. Upset on the podium. In the form of conferences. Or directives. Not mad at the meeting table. Perhaps because he is president. Who plays as president. Not a corporate CEO.

The president may hope that the coordinating ministers will become CEOs in their respective kemenko.

But the coordinating minister could not be the CEO. The coordinating minister, as the name suggests, is only a coordinator. Not a decision maker.

I do not know if the distribution of tasks has changed: the coordinating minister can take decisions.

As long as the decision remains in the hands of the minister, the role of the coordinating minister is very limited. He can call ministers. Scold them. But being angry is not enough. Those who make decisions are always ministers. Those who take action remain in the ranks of the ministry.

Thus, whether an effective minister depends on the minister’s personal authority or not.

Perhaps coordinating minister Luhut Panjaitan could be effective not because of his position, but because of his personality. He is a capable person. His voice was loud – because he was a Batak. If he screams in a frightening way, he is also general.

What Pak Luhut cannot do: dismiss or replace the ministers placed under him. No matter how angry Pak Luhut was at his minister, it was always limited. The then Minister of Maritime Affairs, Susi Pudjiastuti, remained calm. Pak Luhut can only be limited to anger. In addition, Susi’s voice was also strong. Screaming is also scary.

In addition, the Minister for the Coordination of Personal Affairs is delicate. Like Airlangga Hartarto and Muhadjir Effendy. Anger can be very subtle.

But many good people can be effective. Pak Harto is very smooth – on the surface.

The fact that a delicate person like Mr. Jokowi is furious means that the situation has gone too far. For example from the health budget. Only 1% is used.

Even if the health budget is 75 trillion rupees. I pray that the numbers that go into the president are wrong.

If the figure of 1% is true, it is really too much. This means that the program does not work at all. Even if it’s already July.

Or have a reason precisely because it is still early July?

In opening times like this, all budgets must be submitted. This year’s budget came into effect on January 1. This means that a new call for tenders took place in February. Means that the preparation of the offer is one month. It’s quick. Lest the call for tenders actually start in March.

There is also a Covid-19.

The tendering process can be significantly hampered. Even if the tendering process were not hampered, it would not be possible to complete in two months. So if, until the end of June, the budget is only absorbed by 1%, it is most probably blocked in the incomplete tender dossier.

Lest the tender winners not even exist yet.

I know that electronic tendering has grown more and more. What should have been the implementation of the tender could have been faster.

So an important lesson from President Jokowi’s anger remains the same: how to get the winner announced in early March. The problem is who monitors and continues to oversee this schedule.

Another lesson: ministers can be great, ministers can be great, but the real executives of government are ministers of the department.

Even the Director General, in my experience, is too busy with political affairs. Next, the most real political implementers are the directors of the ministry.

Lest the directors be busy serving their chief executive and their ministers.

Thus, the most real executors are civil servants whose level is lower than the director.

So this country may or may not run into their hands. This is called bureaucracy. Yes like this.

I think MJK presented a thesis like that.

Are they lazy fools?

Absolutely not. They are usually S-2. Even foreign graduates. At least take a short education in developed countries.

So where is the question?

They are shy people.

Particularly afraid of breaking the rules.

Why doesn’t President Jokowi issue the highest legal umbrella?

I dare testify: no president as courageous as Mr. Jokowi has published a presidential decree or a presidential decree. Even Perppu.

Even to overcome the Covid-19 crisis, President Jokowi issued a “broom umbrella”. The DPR is already “closing its eyes”: ratify it.

But once deformed, it is difficult to return. Too many cases of people who have not been detained in error. Horrible. Only due to the violation of the rules. Corruption means breaking the rules.

Some even just for violating procedures.

SOE subsidiaries are afraid. Especially in government. Even if the status of the subsidiary is no longer a BUMN. Even an important item cannot be purchased. If the item has not been included in the planning a year ago.

Can you seek approval from the Commissioner or RUPS-LB?

There is no interest. Even if there were such an agreement, it would be considered engineering.

It was like that.

Especially in government agencies.

Okay, already under the umbrella of the law?

The law is not high enough. By implementing it, the law can be rejected by other laws. Including even longer laws.

So I’m used to seeing the president angry. They are more afraid of being detained than being reprimanded by their superiors. (R04)
