REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA -- President Joko Widodo (Jokowi) is scheduled to install Commissioner General Tito Karnavian as the new Police chief to succeed General Badrodin Haiti at the State Palace, here, at 2 p.m. local time, Wednesday.
Antara's sources at the presidential palace hinted that the inauguration of the police chief might coincide with a cabinet reshuffle.
News on the cabinet reshuffle was also circulated outside the palace. Several politicians have expressed their support if the president wants to conduct a reshuffle.
The president sent a letter regarding the police chief candidate to the House of Representatives (DPR) on June 15.
President Jokowi had proposed the name of Commissioner General Karnavian as the sole candidate.
The head of state hoped the new chief will be able to boost the National Police's image and prestige.
The DPR approved the nomination of Commissioner General Karnavian as the new National Police chief at a plenary meeting on June 27.
Karnavian, previously chief of the National Counter-Terrorism Agency, joined the police academy in 1987 and had earlier held posts, including that of the Jakarta Police chief and head of the Special Detachment 88 counter-terrorism squad.
Born in Palembang, South Sumatra Province, on October 26, 1964, Karnavian graduated from the Exeter University in the Great Britain and earned his master's degree in Police Studies in 1993, among others.
In 1998, Karnavian graduated from the Massey University in Auckland, New Zealand, with Strategic Studies as a major subject. Later, Karnavian got his PhD from the Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Nanyang Technological University, in Singapore in 2013.
Karnavian's reputation began to grow during his term with the Police's Special Detachment 88, which succeeded in neutralizing notorious terrorist leaders, such as Azhari Husin and Noordin M. Top.
