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.

To present the views of Presidential candidate Lt Gen (ret.) Prabowo Subianto and Vice-Presidential candidate Sandiaga Uno, 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.

To Present the views of President Joko Widodo and Vice-Presidential Candidate Ma’ruf Amin, on February 13 our speaker will be Pak Mohammad Lutfi, former Indonesian Minister of Trade, Chairman of the Investment Board (BKPM), and Ambassador to Japan.

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.
