New Capital to Sit on New Province-Level Area in Eastern Kalimantan

According to National Development Planning Minister, Suharso Monoarfa, the new province-level area will be called Otorita. It will be similar to establishing a new province in which the new capital will be called Nusantara. The government has set the area to reach 256,000 hectares and targeted for completion in 2045.

The new capital will be led by a person directly elected by the president for the first period. The capital head, he went on, has the task of overseeing preparations for the construction of the new capital as well as organizing the government. In line with that, the leader must ensure that the people there obtain the right to a decent life.
