JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Public confidence in Indonesian President Joko ‘Jokowi’ Widodo and his running mate Ma’aruf Amin has taken a major hit a year after the head of state was re-elected to a second term in October 2019.

A survey carried out by Kompas showed that the number of his critics among the public has substantially grown.

“46.3 percent of respondents are dissatisfied with Jokowi and Ma’ruf’s track record over the past year. Of this number, 6.2 percent said they are extremely dissatisfied,” noted the survey.

“On the other hand, 41 percent of respondents said they are dissatisfied with the government’s record on the field, while 5.5 percent said they are extremely dissatisfied.”
