Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Joko Widodo said the criteria for choosing the Success Team Leader for Winning the Candidate Pair of President and Vice President, Jokowi-Ma`ruf Amin, must have up-to-date and contemporary ideas.

"The most important thing are the ideas. Not a matter of young and old. It is not a matter about the ideas being old or young. But if the idea becomes out-dated, what will happen?" asked Jokowi, after opening the "Young on Top National Conference 2018" in Jakarta on Saturday.

But Jokowi did not explain, in detail, whether the chairman of the success team represents the youth or the older generation.
