Suara.com – Socio-political observer from the Center for Indonesia Strategic Actions (CISA) Herry Menndrofa highlighted President Jokowi’s decision to give so many positions to Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan.
According to Herry, the position that Jokowi has assigned to Luhut is quite a lot, but that does not mean that the Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs is considered a special person for Jokowi. But because Luhut’s role is so great that Jokowi feels the benefits.
“It’s not a special matter, Jokowi needs Luhut to be a bumper to withstand the pressure of military forces in politics,” he said.
He himself did not deny that Luhut’s experience as a retired officer and his status in holding important positions were also the determining factors. In addition, Luhut, who is known as a businessman, is certainly highly considered.

“So maybe Jokowi sees it from this aspect. It is clear that Jokowi is civilian and does not have the basis of large elements of the nation such as military groups or religious groups,” he explained, quoted via Warta Ekonomi.
Herry also said that this aspect was one of the reasons President Jokowi was quite careful in placing Luhut.
He also suspects that the most important thing is that Luhut’s position can guard Jokowi for the rest of his term
“Here lies the symbiosis between the two,” said Herry.
