Jokowi-Ma’ruf Amin’s National Campaign Team spokesman Ace Hasan Syadzily said that the 51.2 percent shareholding of PT Freeport-McMoran’s majority stake in PT Inalum was a proof that Jokowi’s policy was pro on the people’s interests. Freeport is one proof of the success of President Jokowi who truly works for the people of Indonesia.
“This historical incisions are very important for the Indonesian people. After PT Freeport operated in Indonesia since 1973, majority ownership is now controlled by the Indonesian people. We will use the majority ownership as much as possible for the people’s prosperity,” Ace said through his written statement, Sunday 30 December 2018.
The Chairman of the Golkar Party DPP also said that with the acquisition of PT Freeport’s shares, revenues, both from taxes and non-taxes, royalties, would all be greater for the prosperity of the country and the people.
“In addition, people in West Papua will also get 10 percent of the existing shares. Of course in West Papua they will also get local taxes,” Ace said.
Ace continued, this success showed that President Jokowi was the President who had manifested the ideals of an economic constitution, namely land, water, and resources controlled by the state intended for the people’s prosperity.
“So it is not right if President Jokowi has been accused of always being pro-foreign. He has proven, one of them, is the mastery of Freeport shares,” Ace said.
