"Jokowi was the name of my buyers from France," says Mayor of Solo, Joko Widodo, when asked where the name appears Jokowi. He said, so many names with the first name Jim who became exporters of wooden furniture. Buyers from outside the confused to distinguish, that's what Joko Joko it. So, he keeps a special named, 'Jokowi'. The call is then attached to the present. In the card he gave a written, Jokowi, Solo Mayor. Later he checked, his name right in Solo Joko Widodo there are 16 people.
Currently, Jokowi served for the second period. Absolute victory obtained at the municipal elections last year. Name Jokowi now not only popular, but his personality is also appreciated by the public. At least, when going to the markets, traders abuzz call, or at least whisper to the next, "Eh .. it was Pak Joko."
How is it that he can be loved the Solo? Any policy that has made the people happy? Why did he have to step on their employees? Reuters reporters following interview, Pappilanda Ditto, with Jokowi recent travels throughout the half-day in around Solo.
What attitude do you bring in running career as a bureaucrat?
In principle, I only work for the people. Just that simple. I think baseball stuff, wong can not get anything. Want judged to be good, please, willing rated well, yes please. My job's just work. Nah no willingness sorts. Baseball had any target. Work. That's it.
Right, I do not heroics and exactly what we are doing even everyone can work on. Just, like baseball. Intentions baseball. That's it. Baseball goes high. Simple as that.
For example, five years ago, we in the district ID card service snafu. ID cards could be two weeks, it could be three weeks of completion. There is no clear time. Depending on who asks, can a week, two weeks could. However, by improving the system, will be able to change anything. Setting up the system, then implementing the system, and if there is a baseball would implement the system, yes, I stepped on.
Originally internal reaction how?
Yes always, resistance year ahead, but after that, well, ordinary. Everything that was normal, so everyone was pleased. Yes, we understand that this cake, it turned out so well be done.
To change the system ID, three headman me off, I dislodged the district. At that time, when the meeting followed by 51 village heads, village heads there are three that seem intent. Nah maybe an hour, sir, at least three days, they said. The next day the old man out of office. If I am, so alone. Meeting five district again, there is one district, hard pack, because they have data entry. Wow this is the same, lah. Yes, it is.
In fact, after they are gone, the system is able to walk. The entire district is now like a bank. There is no longer a gap between the public and employees, is open all. One hour has also been finished. Rupiah to be paid according to regulations, Rp 5,000.
You also had an interesting experience in handling Merchants Street Markets (PKL) who then many a reference?
Iya. Now many of the areas here, like changing the mindset. Oh apparently handling (PKL) be without a fight. It is not easy. Our experience at that time was to move street vendors in the district that has been used as a place Banjarsari selling even a place to stay for more than 20 years. The area was actually the elite, but as a trading place and a place to stay, that look is untidiness.
Five years ago, they invited me to eat here (meeting the mayor's office). I go to lunch, I invited dinner. I was talking to. Up to 54 times, I go to lunch, dinner, like this. Seven months like this. Finally, they want to move. Baseball goes in-gebukin.
Why it took seven months, why not in the first three months?
We see-saw the wind, lah. If you see, the first time I spoke to them here, they are all direct attach banners. Anyway, if removed, would fight to the death, nyiapin bamboo spears. In fact, no one threatened to burn the town hall.
The heat it until the meeting to what?
Still up to the 30th meeting. Meeting new 30-50 we speak. What they need, what they want, what they worry about. First, they asked the nine route public transportation to get to new areas. We give three public transit. The road is narrow, we are broadening.
The difficult part is, they want assurances turnover in the new as in the old. Well, what the mayor told to warrant such. My answer, sustenance above set, but four months later would I advertise on local television, in local newspapers, I put banners all over town. Finally, they want to move.
I prepare their emigration 45 truck, I tunggui two days, they moved on their own. Their emigration from the old place to the new place I relay the palace soldiers. This is baseball no matter where in the world. They brought cone one by one as a symbol of prosperity. That is, emigration happy. Place the old has become a green open space again.
Turnover in the new place?
Could four times. Could be asked to get there, do not ask me. But, yes there are approximately ten times, there are four times. An average of four times. There is a $ 300 million a month. It was not a street vendor again, shaking my head.
What about the other vendors?
After the ex-PKL Banjarsari move, not difficult to convince the others. Simply meeting three to seven times the meeting is over. Until now, we've moved 23 points PKL, no problem.
Lha a merchant even bother now relocated street vendors were asking. Those of us who do not have money. Until now, still 38 percent of street vendors who have not been relocated. So, if you still see the street vendors on the street or sidewalk, it was part of the 38 percent earlier.
Apparently, the empowerment of market concern you?

Once, when I entered, the income of only $ 7.8 billion market, is now Rp 19.2 billion. Hotel only Rp 10 billion to Rp 5 billion restaurant, parking USD 1.8 billion, $ 4 billion in advertising. The result was only Rp 19.2 billion from Rp 2600 Daily retribution. Merchant a lot, really. This is a must see. Good management of origin, baseball loss we wake up the market. Underserved communities-traders, we can income like that.
Meanwhile, if the mall, I knew baseball, most IMB pay it, we want to pull what? Hence, we limit the mall too. So did we limit the hypermarket. In fact, I also stop minimarket permission. The plan will be used to open 60-80, but was not authorized by me. Now there are only a dozen.
But, it seems Klewer Market untapped yes, conditions are still not comfortable?
Klewer that, whoa. Duitnya big one. Yesterday, investors counted, Rp 400 billion. Money from where? Budget how twenty years, we want to find a moment what has not been met. Solo budget Rp 780 billion to Rp 1.26 trillion this year. We can not afford. Traders in Klewer more, 3000's traders, the market is also huge. There, the Solo many, many Sukoharjo, Sragen many, Jepara there, there Pekalongan, Tegal there. Batik from everywhere. But, I'm sure there jurusnya, just have not met aja.
Matter of education, in some areas has been done free education, whether at the Solo as well?
We're different. Here, we are issuing cards to students, there are platinum, gold, and silver. They are the most impoverished obtain a platinum card. They are free of everything from tuition to the needs of the school as well as operational costs. Then, it got all the gold, but not as much as platinum. So is the silver, just paid for local government for specific needs.
It also imposed for health?
Yes, there was a card like that, there are gold and silver. Gold is for those who enter the poorest of the poor. All free, inpatient care, dialysis and even the gold is also for free.
Apparently, now the people have confidence in you, but in the beginning was elected, many who doubt?
Well, one year, lah. His name is not yet known, I'm not a piece of mayor, skinny, ugly. I also never appeared in Solo baseball, especially my 100 per cent export business. There is a doubt, yes let alone, till now nothing about baseball. Want doubt, would assess ugly, it's up to people.
First, what is the intention initially be mayor?
Nah no intention, accident. Ndak know it. First, the first election, we can vote 37 percent, narrowly won. Wong I am not famous, really. The other well-known all right, my baseball. But, it seems people are lazy with famous people. Want to try the famous baseball. Trial and error, so I told the accident was that it was true.
What's the most memorable for you as mayor?
Most impressive? Most impressively, if first, right, mayor must formalize is the big thing. Inaugurating the biggest mall great example. But, now, gate, post ronda, my everything open, really. Post ronda'm open mayor, the mayor opened the gate, so what about the people who asked, open aja. Yes, sometimes funny too. But we enjoy.
What is the first difficulties you encounter while serving as mayor?
Problems rules. True. We are, if in business, looking as simple as possible, as efficiently as possible. But, we in government can not get, no stage rules. Though budget exist, baseball rules are met, can not get through. Should be, could we kerjain two weeks, had to wait two years. Many of the rules are just handcuff ourselves, too procedural. We are so the procedure.
What consideration when you are running for the second time?
Actually, I want baseball. Want to return to habitat carpenter. At that time, every day coming in droves various groups that pushed me forward again. They say, is the voice of the people. I think, this is nope, what is just political engineering. Two weeks of my leave, my giddy thinking that. I go home, OK I surveyed. My first survey, failure by 87 percent. Can not believe, I survey again, failure by 87 percent.
After the survey, I see, there really wishes of the people. So, who came to me was true. And it turned out I was able to almost 91 percent. I see no hope and expectations that are too large. My calculations are 65-70 per cent. Count on paper 65:35, or 60:40, approx.
There is no concern, when it takes office, all you wake up still awake?
First there is the blueprint, no concept plan of the city. At the very least, the new leader of baseball'll have to use 100 percent, 70 percent seenggaknya. Do not be, has SMP, back to kindergarten. I also have an obligation to prepare and tell what to do later.
