IDNAround – Deputy Chairman of the MPR RI Zulkifli Hasan was elected as the Minister of Trade of the Republic of Indonesia replacing the position previously occupied by Muhammad Lutfi.
Member of Commission VII DPR RI, Mulyanto, hopes that Zulhas, as Zulkifli Hasan is called, can resolve the chaotic increase in the price of cooking oil.
Zulhas, continued the Deputy Chair of the PKS Faction, is also expected to be truly professional and not selective in solving this cooking oil problem.
“This government still owes a promise to the public to reduce the price of migrant workers according to the highest retail price. In fact, two weeks ago, the president emphatically promised to reduce the price of migrant workers. In fact, until today, the price of migrant workers is still above the highest retail price (HET),” Mulyanto told reporters, on Wednesday (June 15, 2022).
