Joko Widodo, the Governor of Jakarta, Indonesia's political and economic capital, has placed the entire capital city of Jakarta under emergency status until January 27, due to recent flooding, but has ruled-out declaring tomorrow, Thursday, January 17, 2013, as a one-off non-working public holiday.

Commenting on false rumours of Thursday, January 17, 2013, having been declared a one-off non-working public holiday, recently-elected (2012-09-15) Governor Widodo stated that "No public leave. If necessary, they should also work on Saturday and Sunday".
