INDUSTRY.co.id - Jakarta - The election of the minister is the prerogative of President Joko Widodo. For that, the current position of Airlangga Hartarto as Minister of Industry doubles as chairman of Golkar does not need to be exaggerated.

Moreover, Airlangga managed to make positive breakthroughs during the lead of the Ministry of Industry.

So said the Chairman of the DPP Golkar Party of the Ministry of Marine Affairs Anton Sihombing in his written statement to the media crew, yesterday.

"I think the polemic is exaggerated, and Airlangga's thoughts are still needed to lead the ministry," he said.

In addition, Anton considers that there is no rule that prohibits a person doubles position as minister and chairman of the party. According to him, as long as President Jokowi still needs Airlangga in the cabinet, certainly nothing can deter.

"I do not think there are any rules that prohibit double positions, moreover, the placement of cabinet members is the prerogative of the President," he said.
