Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo held the inauguration of Anies Baswedan and Sandiaga Uno as Jakarta governor and vice governor at the State Palace in Central Jakarta on Monday afternoon.

"I will work for all residents. I will work for my supporters and others," Anies said.

"We will build Jakarta that is fair for all. We will build Jakarta that is open for all," Anies added.

Anies-Sandi won the Jakarta gubernatorial election earlier this year. The pair grabbed 57.96 percent votes in the second round.
