Deemed disruptive to Jakarta development, City Council Speaker threatens to disband TGUPP


Jakarta, IO – Jakarta Regional Legislative Council (DPRD) Speaker Prasetio Edi Marsudi plans to disband the controversial Governor’s Team for Development Acceleration (TGUPP) as Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan ended his term. Prasetio is of the view that the existence of TGUPP results in the capital city’s chaotic development.

To show his seriousness, Prasetio, who also serves as chairman of the Budget Committee even threatened that he would no longer allocate a budget for TGUPP next year. “TGUPP must be gone. It only messes up with the development in Jakarta,” said Prasetio, as reported by Tempo, Thursday (15/9).

Prasetio also pointed to ideas conceived by TGUPP which he said are detrimental to Jakarta. One being the problematic flood management. In addition, he noted that development has been uneven and only happened in the downtown area.
