Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: President Joko Widodo conducted a meeting with police and military leaders in the Presidential Palace on Monday (10/24).

"I will discuss illegal fees and regional elections," said Jokowi before the meeting.

Indonesia will stage simultaneous regional elections in February 2017. As many as 101 will hold elections.

The National Police and the National Armed Forces are responsible to secure the regional elections. They are expected to maintain neutrality.
