Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno (born 28 June 1969) is an Indonesian businessman, investor and politician, and is a deputy governor-elect of Jakarta.



Sandi Uno graduated from Wichita State University, paid by William Soerjadjaja, because his mother personally knew the Astra International group founder.[1] He began his career with Summa Bank in 1990. In 1994, he joined MP Group Holding Limited as an investment manager. The following year, he began working for NTI Resources Ltd in Canada and worked as an Executive Vice President in the company. The 1997 financial crisis hit NTI Resources Ltd hard and caused it to go into administration, leaving him unemployed.

In 1997, he co-founded PT. Recapital Advisors with his high school friend, Rosan Perkasa Roeslani. the following year, he co-founded Saratoga Capital with Edwin Soeryadjaya, son of William Soerjadjaja. Both businesses continue to flourish today. Listed as 29th richest man in Indonesia according to Forbes magazine in 2009,[2] he continued to grow his businesses, buying a controlling (51%) stake in Mandala Airlines[3] in May 2011. He was listed as 47th richest man in Indonesia according to Forbes in 2013.[4]

In 2016, his name appeared on the list of Panama Papers (known as Tax Scandal), although he denies he evaded taxes or broke the law.[5]


He decided to leave the business world, entering politics in mid-2015. In the period from April to July 2015, he officially resigned from various positions in 16 subsidiaries of Saratoga and Recapital.[6] Joining the Gerindra party as vice chairman of the board of supervisors, he was catapulted to the second highest office after Prabowo.[7] His name began to be considered by Gerindra to be nominated in the 2017 Jakarta gubernatorial election.

Late in 2015, several volunteer community support groups began to emerge, including "Sahabat Sandiaga Uno" (Friends of Sandiaga Uno or SSU).[8] He began making visits to various locations within Jakarta. In early 2016, Sandiaga Uno, with assistance of his supporters, began to intensify visits to various locations in Jakarta. Performing visits to up to 7 different locations a day, for the 6-month period from February to August 2016. The rumour of his candidacy intensified, as news leaked of the desire of 7 political parties to form a grand coalition in August 2016.[9]

This desire was not realised following the withdrawal the ruling PDI-P party, who threw its weight behind incumbent governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, along with Golkar, Hanura and Nasdem. The Democratic Party, PAN, PKB and PPP then announced it planned to nominate Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono (son of former President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono) for the position.[10]

The remaining parties, Gerindra and PKS, agreed to remain in the coalition, selecting former Education Minister Anies Baswedan as their candidate, and Sandiaga Uno as his running mate. Sandi said, he had suggested Baswedan to Prabowo because he felt that Baswedan would be more suitable for the position.[11]
