Several legislators from the Shiv Sena party, led by senior leader Eknath Shinde, have revolted against the party leadership. It is still not clear if the rebel faction will join Opposition party BJP to bring down the Thackeray-led State government and form a new one. President Nayib Bukele's government first passed what was meant to be a 30-day measure in late March after the Central American country's murder rate spiked. On Wednesday, Chief Minister and president of the party Uddhav Thackeray appealed to the rebel legislators to talk to him directly as he sought to survive the challenge. “However, the Johor government is currently seeking feedback from all stakeholders on the proposed reversion of rest days. He even offered to step down in order to keep the rebels within the party’s fold. The extension passed with 67 votes in favour out of a possible 84, with 15 against. “Even if one legislator from my party says they don’t want me as their leader, I will quit,” Thackeray said in a speech Wednesday. Teuku Faizasyah, a spokesman for Indonesia's foreign ministry, confirmed Jokowi would travel to Germany, though said"we are still in the process of finalising all relevant matters concerning the planned visit to other countries.

The Sena and the BJP share a Hindu-nationalist ideology and were allies for about three decades. In the three months since it began, security forces have arrested more than 41,300 people, including 1,190 minors, for allegedly belonging to or collaborating with the gangs, official data show. The BJP-Shiv Sena combine won the majority in the 288-member assembly after State polls in October 2019, but the alliance was dissolved after differences over government formation. “Such a decision is also related to His Highness’ (Sultan Ibrahim’s) order. The Shiv Sena was able to form a coalition government with the regional Nationalist Congress Party, India’s main Opposition Congress party, and several other smaller groups. The government did not respond to a request for comment. Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese confirmed he would attend regardless during a visit to Jakarta this month.
