USINDO is delighted to announce we are holding our Special Indonesian Presidential Elections Open Forum Luncheon Series in Washington again this year, ahead of Indonesia’s fast-approaching April 17 Presidential Election. Information for those interested in attending is provided further below.
Based on our 2014 series and USINDO’s recognized neutral position, our 2019 Special Elections Series will provide the two coalitions an equal and balanced opportunity to present their views and platform to our highly interested Washington audience.
We are honored that each coalition fielding candidates for President and Vice President has appointed a senior representative to present their views at our Elections Series:
On February 5, our Elections Series speaker will be Pak Hashim Djodjohadikusumo, Co-founder of the Gerindra Party and Vice Chairman of its Supreme Leadership Council. Pak Hashim has been appointed by the Campaign Team of Presidential candidate Lt Gen (ret.) Prabowo Subianto and Vice-Presidential candidate Sandiaga Uno to present their views at our event. Pak Hashim’s bio is further below.
On February 13, our speaker will be Pak Muhammad Lutfi, former Indonesian Minister of Trade, Chairman of the Investment Board (BKPM), and Ambassador to Japan. The Campaign Team of President Joko Widodo and Vice-Presidential Candidate Ma’ruf Amin has officially designated Ambassador Lutfi to present the views of their coalition at our event. Ambassador Lutfi’s bio is further below.
Our Special 2019 Elections Series will be a unique opportunity for all those interested in Indonesia to become directly and authoritatively informed about the Presidential election and the key issues in play, including those relating to the United States.
A seated luncheon will be followed by a speech by each coalition’s speaker, and questions and answers. Officials of the US Government, members of the public, think tanks, and media will be among those present.
