The awards to the 14 public leaders took place on Tuesday (2/23) and aired live on the Beritasatu News Channel.
According to Anies, it was also obtained from the hard work of all Jakarta Provincial Government ranks working together in dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Alhamdulillah, I'm grateful to receive the BeritaSatu Public Leader Awards at the virtual Leadership Forum last Tuesday. Thank you to Beritasatu Media Holdings for the award, we will continue it to the thousands of our ranks who are still working hard day and night in dealing with the pandemic," he expressed, as quoted by Jakarta PPID's press release, Thursday (2/25).
Jury Chairman, M Nuh, explained that the award was given as an appreciation to outstanding leaders with assessment parameters that emphasized efforts to deal with the pandemic, as well as efforts made to minimize its impact on other sectors of life, especially the economic sector.
"These leaders are judged to have innovative performance during the pandemic. The parameters used to assess the Governor's performance are very objective and measurable, as they are based on indicators of handling COVID and indicators of economic conditions, such as unemployment rates and economic movements. As for the parameters used to assess the performance of the ministers are based on the complexity of the problems faced by the ministries led and the policy breakthroughs taken. What is equally important is other efforts made outside the Ministry's main task to help contain the pandemic," he added.
In this pandemic, he also explained that the conditions faced by public leaders in society were getting difficult. Therefore, there should be innovative leadership capacities capable of making breakthroughs in dealing with pandemic situations.
