Regarding the Prohibition of Opening Opening Ceremony, This Said the Mayor of Bandung
The President of the Republic of Indonesia, Joko Widodo forbade state officials including regional heads from holding iftar together in Ramadan 1444 hijriah.
Responding to this, the Mayor of Bandung, Yana Mulyana stated, the Bandung City Government (Pemkot) would follow the regulations set by the central government.
"In principle, we follow the regulations set by the center," said Yana at the Bandung City Hall, Friday, March 24, 2023.
Yana claimed to have read and studied the instructions.
"If I read I can't organize it," he said.
It should be noted, President Jokowi's directive not to hold an iftar together continues the directives of previous years. Given that Indonesia is still in the transition process from the Covid-19 pandemic to endemic.
However, it is permissible for the general public to hold it. (yan)**
