On this occasion, he hoped that the media could write facts proportionally in reporting to support the enforcement of democracy.

He also expressed his gratitude to the mass media, which for seven months was born, since the election campaign began in 2019, continued to report proportionally, positively and professionally.

On that occasion, he said, the international community acknowledged and praised the elections in Indonesia running safely, in an orderly and democratic manner, with a very high level of voter participation.
