A Conversation with Indonesia's Joko Widodo

Indonesia’s President Joko Widodo could extend his time in government by running for the number two post in the 2024 presidential elections if he gets nominated, Kompas reported, citing a senior official from his party. 

There’s no constitutional rule preventing Jokowi, as the president is popularly known, from running as vice president, the local news outlet said, quoting Bambang Wuryanto, a senior official with Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle. Jokowi is on the last term of his presidency and is barred constitutionally from seeking a third term.
