Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: President Joko Widodo will meet political party leaders to reduce political tension after the November 4 protest.

"We will arrange all," said Jokowi in Jakarta on Sunday (11/13).

Muslim hardliners staged massive protest against Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Prunama on November 4. They demanded the police to charge the governor for religious blasphemy.

Jokowi previously visited Nahdlatul Ulama and Muhammadiyah. He also invited other Islamic organizations to the Presidential Palace.

He affirmed that the government will not intervene the case. The legal process currently is on going.
