Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Incumbent Jakarta Governor Basuki "Ahok" Tjahaja Purnama wants to build 39 water reservoirs in the capital.

"We will add 39 water reservoirs," said Ahok in Jakarta on Tuesday (11/29).

"We will buy more land," he stated.

Ahok believes the water reservoirs can prevent floods. The water reservoirs can also provide water for Jakarta citizens.

Ahok will compete against Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono and Anies Baswedan in the 2017 Jakarta gubernatorial election.
