Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Jakarta  could fail to host 2018 Asian Games. Construction delays in Jakarta makes the right to host the biggest multi-sport event in Asia could move to China.

Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama said if Jakarta doesn't ready, Jakarta could be replaced by China. Basuki promised Jakarta Provincial Government will accelerate the construction process.

"We are worried because China is very ready to replace us. It is in danger. Our infrastructure is doubtful," Basuki said in City Hall, Jakarta (11/26/2015).

One of the issue is Athlete Village construction. Parliament still doesn't approve the project. "We ask State Secretary and Vice President to lobby parliament because it could be problem in the future," he said.

To reassure Olympic Council of Asia, Jakarta Provincial Government has submitted masterplan for the venues. "We have sent the mock-up and animation so they can be confident," he said.

Parliament doesn't approve Athlete Village project yet because the building is originally intended for cheap apartment. Basuki said the building will only be used as Athlete Village temporarily. "We will return the original function after Asian Games," he said.
