According to the Minister, the number of officers is very important considering that there are still many elderly pilgrims.

“It still the same as last year, namely service to the priority of elderly pilgrims. So there are approximately 30 percent of our total hajj pilgrims who are elderly,” the Minister said.

Therefore, the Minister will ask the Government of Saudi Arabia to be given a proportional number of Indonesian officers.

“If the officers are reduced, I think the quality of service to the elderly will also be reduced due to the reduction of officers,” Minister Gus Yaqut remarked.
