The National Campaign Team (TKN) of the Jokowi-Ma'ruf Amin pair will be dismissed on Friday at a meeting of the team's members in Jakarta, Deputy Secretary of the campaign team Verry Surya Hendrawan stated.

"The main agenda (of the meeting) is the dismissal of the national campaign team," Hendrawan confirmed here on Thursday.

The meeting is scheduled to take place at 4 p.m. local time on Friday, with attendees to comprise secretary generals of political parties supporting the pair, Hendrawan remarked without divulging details on the venue of the meeting.

Hendrawan noted that the campaign team was chiefly tasked with making the presidential candidate pair number 01 victorious, and the task was well-accomplished. Hence, as the team's core task has been fulfilled, its dissolution is called for.

"To make it de jure (dismissal), all members will return to their respective political parties and mass organizations, although we will continue to support and critically watch the administration," he affirmed.

The General Elections Commission (KPU) had declared Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and K.H. Ma'ruf Amin as Indonesia's president-elect and vice president-elect for the 2019-2024 period.

The Jokowi-Ma'ruf pair had secured 85,607,362 votes, or 55.50 percent, while rival candidate pair Prabowo-Sandi had garnered 68,650,239 votes, or 44.50 percent.
