"I was called by the President," said Nadiem while walking to the Presidential Palace.
Nadiem arrived around at around 10:15 Western Indonesian Time (WIB). Nadiem said he was asked by the President to wear a white shirt.
The South Minahasa Regent Christiany Euginia Paruntu and former Constitutional Court Chief Mahfud MD also came to the Presidential Palace Complex. They also wore white long-sleeved shirts and black pants.
Christiany did not say much when asked why he arrived at the Presidential Palace. While Mahfud claimed to have been summoned by President Joko Widodo.
"I was summoned," Mahfud told reporters before entering the Presidential Palace.
Previously, several Presidential Palace staff were seen carrying long-sleeved white shirts. The shirt is similar to the clothes usually worn by President Jokowi and cabinet members.
Jokowi still has not revealed the names of his new ministers. He asked all parties to wait patiently for the announcement. Jokowi hinted that there will be some ministers retained from his first cabinet as well as new members.
