JAKARTADALY.ID - Not even a month into his position as Indonesian Minister of Trade, Zulkifli Hasan, or Zulhas, received a warning from President Joko Widodo.

Recently a video of Zulhas has been making the rounds on social media. Whilst distributing free bulk cooking oil in Teluk Betung, Bandar Lampung, the Trade Minister has been actively promoting his daughter, Futri Zulya Savitri, who is running for a legislative seat in 2024. 

Zulkifli, who is the chairman of the National Mandate Party, can be seen actively promoting his daughter's campaign in the video.

"Ten thousand for 2 liters? (Does everyone) have the ten thousand? Put the money in your pocket. That ten thousand Rupiah is on Futri," said Zulhas in the video, implying that the cooking oil has been paid for by his daughter. 

"But vote for Futri okay? If you vote for Futri, there will be two more months of these things," added Zulhas

Zulkifli who is the chairman of the National Mandate Party (PAN), garnered some criticism for the video, and a warning from President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo.

 

"I ask all ministers to focus on work. The Minister of Trade, (should) take care of the most important thing that I tasked him (with) yesterday. (And that) is how to reduce the price of cooking oil," he said, according to a statement from the Cabinet Secretariat.
