Jakarta: Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo received around 90 local kings and Sultans at Bogor Palace in Bogor city, West Java province on Thursday, January 4, 2017.

The local kings and sultans  were gathered by the Education and Cultural Ministry this week. They were welcomed by Education and Cultural Minister Muhadjir Effendy last night.

"We have held constructive talks with them. We have compiled all problems faced by them," the former Malang Muhammadiyah University dean said.

Hundreds of local kings and sultans can still be found in Indonesia. They are still quite influential in the archipelago.
