Is this claim true?
Based on the search results of the Suara.com Fact Check, the claim that Mahfud MD resigned from the Indonesia Onward Cabinet because Jokowi’s policies were getting worse is wrong.
After the video has been watched to completion, there is no information or news from the claims written by the YouTube channel.
In fact, the uploaded video discusses the response of political observer Rocky Gerung to Mahfud MD’s statement.
Mahfud MD himself made a statement in 2012 that said an ‘angel’ if he enters the system, will turn into a ‘demon’.

In the previous report, Rocky Gerung said that Mahfud MD was still like an angel, but he justified the devil’s actions.
This attitude is related to Mahfud MD who is considered to support Jokowi’s decision to sign a Government Regulation in Lieu of Job Creation (Perppu) which is still being debated today.
Based on the explanation above, the news that Mahfud MD has resigned from the cabinet due to Jokowi’s bad policies is false.
Information from uploaded videos on the YouTube channel is included in the hoax category.
