“The ministers who were invited were not present, only the representatives came. And we need policies that should have been attended by the relevant minister,” said Deputy Chairman of the House Agus Hermanto at Gedung Nusantara III in Jakarta on Thursday (4/13).
Agus said the coordinated meeting to discuss Hajj pilgrimage was important because it involved an increase in Hajj pilgrimage services.
He continued that the Leader of the House will reschedule the consultation meeting and certainly will not disrupt the cabinet meeting held at the presidential palace.
