Feeling gloomy on lonely Saturday night? Fret not, Jakartans, the incoming governor and deputy governor will help you find the special one!
Jakarta Deputy Governor-elect Sandiaga Uno promised to launch Kartu Jakarta Jomblo, or Jakarta Single's Card (KJJ), for citizens who are single. In accordance with his slogan during the campaign, “Advanced City, Happy Citizens”, Sandi said that this card will be a facility for Jakarta’s citizens to find their significant others.
“Residents should be happy, because being continuously single may cause stress. In life, we need a companion, we all want to find our partners, and this jomblo card is our facility to find our partners,” said Sandi.
KJJ is an innovation that will integrate with some of Anies-Sandi's flagship programs, such as One Kecamatan One Center for Entrepreneurship (OK OCE) program, and down-payment-free home installment program. According to him, having jobs and homes will make citizens more confident to meet prospective in-laws.
Sandi also confirmed that KJJ only has a validity period of six months. This to motivate citizens to find their mates as soon as possible and change their 'single' status. The validity period can be extended once.
He also promised to make events and facilities for male and female citizens to meet and get acquainted with each other in a well-mannered way. He believes that having a vast network is the first key for a strong romantic relationship.
“When you have networks, you have more option,” he said. “Currently we’re designing a program to launch the jomblo card.”
How serious is he with this program? We don't know. Let's just wait and see.
