Jakarta: Golkar Party executives met with President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo and Vice President Jusuf Kalla on Thursday, November 30, 2017.

They informed the two leaders about the proposed Golkar Party chairman election. They invited the two leaders to the planned Golkar Party extraordinary congress.

"If we can carry out the extraordinary congress, we will invite both of them," Golkar politician Ridwan Bae said.

The current Golkar Party chairman Setya Novanto was taken into custody by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) earlier this month. He was named as a suspect in the electronic identity card (e-KTP) graft case last month.

The current House of Representatives speaker was investigated for causing Rp2.3 trillion in state losses. He was accused of receiving Rp574 billion from the project funds.
