JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesian president-elect Joko Widodo said on Friday he would like to see the outgoing president increase fuel prices before he starts his five-year term in October, a move that would help ease ballooning government subsidy costs.
"If we can do it now, it will be a lighter (burden)," Widodo told reporters when asked if he would like to see a fuel price rise before October.
