Liliyana Natsir

Liliyana Natsir (born 9 September 1985) is a retired Indonesian badminton player who specialized in doubles. With one gold and silver from the Olympic Games, and four gold medals at the BWF World Championships, she is regarded as one of the greatest mixed doubles players of all-time. Natsir was the second Indonesian woman Olympic gold medalist, after Susi Susanti won gold in 1992. She gained huge success by partnering with two different players. Her current partner is Tontowi Ahmad since 2010, after being separated from her previous partner, Nova Widianto. She also won three titles in a row from 2012–2014 at All England Badminton Championships, one of the most prestigious and oldest tournament in the sport. Been entering the top level since 18 years old, her tactical awareness, game vision, and dominance at the front court are considered as one of the best in the tour. In 2016, she and Tontowi Ahmad became the first Indonesian mixed doubles pair to win gold medal at the Olympic Games by beating Chan Peng Soon and Goh Liu Ying of Malaysia.

Personal Life

Natsir is a daughter of Beno Natsir (father) and Olly Maramis (mother).

Early Life

Natsir had dreamed of being a badminton athlete since childhood. She started playing badminton at the age of nine at her local badminton club in Manado. Three years later, she decided to move to Jakarta and entered her youth club, Tangkas Alfamart. She joined the national badminton team of Indonesia in 2002 together with Natalia Poluakan, her longtime friend from Manado. When she and Poluakan won the women’s doubles title in Pekan Olahraga Nasional (National Games), Richard Mainaky noticed her game and invited her to play in mixed doubles with Nova Widianto.


In 2006, Natsir and Widianto won the Asian Championships in mixed doubles and four World Grand Prix titles. They won the BWF World Championships in both 2005 and 2007. While Natsir had previously focused on mixed doubles with partner Nova Widianto, in 2007 she began playing women’s doubles with Vita Marissa. In the 2007 Southeast Asian Games in Thailand, Natsir and Marissa won the gold medal in women’s doubles, defeating their Indonesian teammates Jo Novita and Greysia Polii in straight sets. They also helped the Indonesian women’s team win the team gold medal at the games. In the beginning of 2009 Marissa resigned from national team. When this decision came out, Marissa and Natsir had to split up and each focus on their own career. One year later, in September 2010, the badminton world was surprised by the sudden split of world number #1 mixed-doubles pair Widianto and Natsir. In total, Nova and Liliyana had clinched two World Championship gold medals and 14 titles all together, and were still at world #1 when the decision was announced. Since then Lilyana has paired with the younger player Tontowi Ahmad in mixed doubles.

Susi Susanti

Penyatuan kedua api obor tersebut menandai dimulainya perjalanan api obor Asian Games 2018 yang akan dibawa berlari mengelilingi 18 provinsi. ANTARA FOTO/Ismar Patrizki/nz/18.

Lucia Francisca Susy Susanti (Hanzi: 王蓮香, Pinyin: Wang Lian-xiang, Hokkien: Ong Lien Hiang, born 11 February 1971 in Tasikmalaya, West Java) is a retired Indonesian badminton player. Relatively small of stature, she combined quick and graceful movement with elegant shotmaking technique, and regarded by many as one of the greatest women’s singles player of all time. Sometimes her name is also spelled Susi Susanti. She is the first Indonesian Olympic gold medalist and the only Indonesian woman until Lilyana Natsir won gold in 2016.


She won the women’s singles gold medal at the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, Spain and the bronze medal at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, United States. She retired from the world badminton circuit not long after her marriage to Alan Budikusuma (who had also won a badminton singles gold medal at the 1992 Summer Olympics) in February 1997.

Susanti was the most dominant women’s singles player in the first half of the 1990s, winning the All-England in 1990, 1991, 1993 and 1994, the World Badminton Grand Prix finale five times consecutively from 1990 to 1994 as well as in 1996, and the IBF World Championships in 1993.

She is the only female player to hold the Olympic, World Championship, and All-England singles titles simultaneously. She won the Japan Open three times and the Indonesian Open five times. She also won numerous Badminton Grand Prix Series events and five Badminton World Cups. She led the Indonesian team to victory over perennial champion China in the 1994 and 1996 Uber Cup (women’s world team) competitions.

All of this came during a relatively strong period in women’s international badminton. Her chief competitors early in her prime years were the Chinese players Tang Jiuhong and Huang Hua, and, later, China’s Ye Zhaoying and the Korean Bang Soo-hyun.

Susanti was inducted into the International Badminton Federation (IBF, currently BWF) Hall of Fame in May 2004, and received the Herbert Scheele Trophy in 2002.

Playing Style

Susanti was an extremely durable defensive player who like to instigate long rallies to wear out opponent’s stamina and forcing unforced errors. The style was in contrast to most of the top female players of her contemporaries like, Bang Soo Hyun, Tang Jiuhong, Huang Hua, Ye Zhaoying, who at the time deployed more aggressive style.

Bulks of her points came from opponent’s bad strikes. Susanti’s matches were characteristically slow and long, especially in the era of 15 points system in a player could only get a point whenever she or he held the serve. Susanti’s relied on deep lob to the backline, effectively nullified the chance of engaging in fast pace exchange, and combined it with occasional drop shots near the net which forced her opponent to cover the entire court. Susanti’s frequently covered her backhand side with overhead forehand, many with heavy back-arching overhead forehands. She often stretched her legs very wide and low to take shots at the corners or away from her position. Being a small girl with limited court coverage in her development years had pushed her to develop the wide leg-stretching manoeuvre, a pose that became her signature move and sometimes ended with a full leg split. In later years of her career, Susanti incorporated a little smash in her repertoire, just enough to put her opponent off-balance since most of her opponents barely expected any attacking strikes from her.

Personal Life

She is married to Alan Budikusuma (Chinese: 魏仁芳), a men’s badminton Olympic gold medalist (also in 1992) and one of the top men’s players in the history of the sport, a former Chinese Indonesian badminton player who excelled at the world level from the late 1980s to the mid-1990s. Together they have three children Laurencia Averina, born 1999.

Ratchanok INTANON

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ratchanok Intanon (Thai: รัชนก อินทนนท์, RTGS: Ratchanok Inthanon, pronounced [rát.t͡ɕʰā.nók ʔīn.tʰā.nōn]; born 5 February 1995) is a Thai badminton player who became the first Thai to become No.1 in women’s singles. She is known for her relaxed hitting motion and light footwork which has been described as ‘balletic’ by commentators such as Gillian Clark. She became world champion in women’s singles in 2013.

Career Summary


Ratchanok won her first individual International title in 2009, while she was only 14, by winning the Vietnam International Challenge. She made history by becoming the youngest-ever champion at the BWF World Junior Championships at 14 when she triumphed in Malaysia. She also reached SEA Games 2009 Badminton WS final but lost to her compatriot Salakjit Ponsana.

In 2010, at the age of 15, she successfully defended her title at the World Junior Championships in Mexico. She won two back-to-back Grand Prix tournaments by winning Vietnam Open Grand Prix and Indonesia Open Grand Prix Gold. In 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games, she won a silver medal as a member of the women’s team. In the final, she lost to Wang Xin, at that time world number 1, 22-20 17-21 14-21.

In 2011, she became the most successful player ever in individual events at the BWF World Junior Championships, winning the women’s singles title for the third straight time in Taiwan. She won Syed Modi International and was also a member of the women’s team that defeated Indonesia in the final at the 2011 Southeast Asian Games. At the BWF World Championships, she was the only player to take a game off of the eventual champion, Wang Yihan.

In 2012, Ratchanok, at 16 years of age, was awarded the Best Female Athlete Award in Thailand after winning the world junior title for three successive years. Ratchanok’s biggest goal is to win the Olympic gold medal. However, at 2012 London Olympics quarter-final match with Wang Xin, despite leading 21–17 and 16-9 in the second game, she failed to close the match and eventually lost 21–17, 18–21, 14–21. She reached the finals of the SCG Thailand Open 2012 but lost to Saina Nehwal 19–21 21–15 21–10 in the finals.

She qualified for the Super Series Finals and lost in the semi-finals. She finished the year as world number 9.


2013 was one of Ratchanok’s golden years. She reached the finals of the 2013 All England Open Badminton Championships, losing to Tine Rasmussen 14–21, 21–16, 10–21. Despite her loss, she is still the youngest singles finalist ever at the All England tournament. She won her first Superseries tournament by beating Juliane Schenk 22-20, 21-14 in the Yonex Sunrise India Open 2013 to become the youngest-ever Superseries winner, with the age of 18 years, 2 months and 22 days (She held this record for 6 months until Akane Yamaguchi won the 2013 Japan Open at the age of 16). She again reached the finals of the SCG Thailand Open 2013. This time she won the title, beating Busanan Ongbumrungpan 20-22, 21-19, 21-13 to become the first Thai ever to win the women’s singles title at the Thailand Open since it was first held in 1984.

After the Thailand Open, she decided to withdraw from both the Indonesia Open SSP and Singapore Open SS to recover from her foot injury and prepare for the BWF World Championships. In August, Ratchanok won the BWF World Championships, beating world number 1 and Olympic gold medallist Li Xuerui 22-20 18-21 21-14 in the final. She is the first-ever Thai player to be the World Champion. At the age of 18, she is also the youngest singles World Champion ever. She became the World Champion while still being eligible to play in the 2013 BWF Junior World Championships in Bangkok. After World Championships, she injured her back which forced her to withdraw from another two super series events, Japan Open and China Master. Ratchanok didn’t qualify for Super Series Final in Malaysia and finished 2013 as the World number 3. She was awarded “2013 Best Females Athletes Award” from Thailand Sports Authority.


Ratchanok reached the final of the Korea Open for the first time but lost to Wang Yihan 13-21, 19-21. Her head-to-head statistics with Wang Yihan has been increased to 0-8. She was awarded “Best Asian Sporting Icon” by Fox Sports Asia, based on voting from internet fans from its website. She reached the semi-finals of the All England 2014 to meet with Li Xuerui for the first time after beating her in World Championships of 2013. However, this time she lost to Li Xuerui in 2 sets. After the All England tournament, Ratchanok failed to pass the first round in both the 2014 Asian Championship and Japan Open. She reached the finals of the Indonesia Open but again lost to Li Xuerui 13-21, 13-21. After the Indonesia Open, Ratchanok did not reach any finals for the rest of the year. She failed to defend her World Champion title by losing in the second round. She qualified for Super Series Final in Dubai but failed to pass the round-robin. She finished the 2014 year as World number 6.


At the age of 20, Ratchanok made a comeback by reaching the final of the India Open for the second time but lost to her opponent, Saina Nehwal, 16-21, 14-21.[13] However, in the quarter-finals of the All England Championships while playing Sun Yu, while 13-19 down in the decider, Ratchanok was forced to retire from cramp. Many people were skeptical about her fitness levels. A month later, she created history as the first Thai singles player to be crowned Asia Championship champion by defeating Li Xuerui in the final match 20-22, 23-21, 21-12 in China.14] It was the first time that Ratchanok had beaten Li Xuerui since the final of the 2013 World Championships. In June, she won her first Super Series Premier title by beating Yui Hashimoto of Japan in straight games, 21-11, 21-10, at the Indonesia Open. However, at the BWF World Championships, she had to retire from court 8-5 up in the decider against Lindaweni Fanetri in the last 16 stage from cramp yet again. She won a gold medal with Thailand Women’s team at the 2015 Southeast Asian Games in Singapore. After the Indonesia Open, she didn’t reach the final of any tournaments but earned enough points to qualify for the Dubai Super Series Final tournament. She lost to Wang Yihan in the semi-final, which brought their head-to-head statistics to 0-12. She finished the 2015 season at world number 7.


Ratchanok won Princess Sirivannavari Thailand Masters 2016, a second Grand Prix Gold tournament in Thailand, by beating Sun Yu of China in the Final 21-19, 18-21, 21-17. She again won Indian Open Super Series for the second time by beating Li Xue Rui in the Final 21-17, 21-18. In Malaysia Super Series Premier the week after, Ratchanok finally won the maiden match over Wang Yihan by beating her in Semi-Final 21-11, 21-19. Their head-to-head statistics improved from 0-12 to be 1-12. In the final, she beat Tai Tzu-ying 21-14, 21-15 to earn the Malaysia Open title for the first time. It was Ratchanok’s first time to win two consecutive Superseries tournaments. Ratchanok then became the first singles player to win 3 Superseries in 3 consecutive weeks by winning the Singapore Super Series, defeating Sun Yu in the final. By winning 3 Superseries in a row, Ratchanok also rose to the No.1 spot in the world rankings, becoming the first Thai to achieve this feat. Intanon qualified for the 2016 Summer Olympics and is the Thai flag bearer. At the Olympics she failed to pass the Round of 16, losing out to the Japanese rising star, Akane Yamaguchi, in a close two game match 19-21, 16-21. Ratchanok then withdrew from the Thailand Open, and she lost in the quarter-finals and the second round of the Japan Open and Korea Open respectively. Following that, she withdrew from the Denmark Open as well as the French Open due to a knee injury that she picked up at the Rio Olympics. After that, she played a couple of shots in China before retiring, and then she withdrew from the Hong Kong Open due to the same injury, knowing that she would have secured enough points to qualify for the Super Series Finals. Ratchanok had the goal of making it into the semi-finals of the Superseries Finals but lost 21-19 21-12 to Sung Ji Hyun, 21-13 21-14 to Tai Tzu Ying, and 21-19 11-10, retiring injured against He Bingjiao. She finished 2016 at a world ranking of 5.

Nadiem Makarim

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nadiem Makarim (born 1984) is an Indonesian entrepreneur and minister of education and culture. He founded Go-Jek in 2010, a transportation network company and logistic startup company that became Indonesia’s first decacorn company. He was appointed as Minister of Education and Culture by President Joko Widodo on his second term’s cabinet and subsequently resigned from his post at Gojek.

Personal Life

Nadiem was born in Singapore on 4 April 1984, to Nono Anwar Makarim and Atika Algadri. His father is an activist, lawyer and is of Minangkabau-Arabian descent. His sister, Rayya Makarim, is a filmmaker. He married Franka Franklin and they have one daughter.


Nadiem attended high school in Jakarta and United World College of Southeast Asia (UWC SEA), Singapore, then went to Brown University for a BA in International Relations. He did his MBA at Harvard University.

Career and Business

Makarim started his career at McKinsey & Company as management consultant in Jakarta. He left to co-found Zalora, an online fashion shop, then left Zalora to become Chief Innovation Officer at Kartuku, a payments service provider.

McKinsey & Company (2006 – 2009)

After graduating from Harvard University with an MBA, Nadiem decided to come back home to Indonesia and got a job in McKinsey & Co. Nadiem worked as a Mckinsey consultant for 3 years.

Zalora Indonesia (2011 – 2012)

Nadiem became Co-Founder and Managing Director for Zalora Indonesia in 2011. In 2012, Nadiem made the decision to leave Zalora to focus on building his own startup, including Gojek which at that time had 15 employees and 450 drivers. He claims to have learned enough from Zalora, which was his main goal in accepting the position in the first place. In Zalora, Nadiem had the chance to build a mega startup and work with some of the best talent across the region.

Kartuku (2013 – 2014)

After leaving Zalora and while developing Gojek, Nadiem also worked as a Chief Innovation Officer of Kartuku. In the early days, Kartuku didn’t have any competition in cashless payment solutions in Indonesia. Kartuku was then acquired by Gojek to strengthen GoPay.

Gojek (2010 – Present)

In 2010 Nadiem created Gojek, which is today a decacorn company with valuation over USD 10 billion. Gojek was first established as a call centre, offering only courier delivery and two-wheeled ride-hailing services. Today, Gojek has transformed into a super app, providing more than 20 services, ranging from transportation, food delivery, groceries, massage, house cleaning, logistics to a cashless digital payment platform called GoPay.

Makarim often uses a motorcyle taxi, known in Indonesia as an Ojek. He saw this as a business opportunity and developed it into Go-Jek, founded in 2010.

Go-Jek was well received, and eventually received US$ 1,3 billion funding from investors, in a 2018 round led by Alphabet Inc’s Google, Inc and Tencent Holdings. It thereby became the first Indonesian Unicorn. By 2019, the firm was worth up to US$ 10 billion.


  • In 2016, Nadiem received the The Straits Times Asian of the Year award, and was the first Indonesian to receive the award since it was first established in 2012. The Asian of the Year award is given to an individual or group that has significantly contributed to increasing the welfare of people in their countries or Asia at large. Some previous recipients include the founder of Singapore, Lee Kuan Yew, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Myanmar President Thein Sein. The award came as the company focuses on increasing the welfare of the informal sector. At the same time, it can help provide a livelihood for Indonesians by changing the traditional business market and model.
  • In 2018, Nadiem made it to Bloomberg 50 annual list of innovators. Bloomberg assessed that there was no other technology platform (app) that changed the lives of Indonesian as fast and as integrated as Gojek. Gojek app was launched in 2015 with a focus on two-wheel ride-hailing, and developed into a platform to pay bills, order food, and book cleaning services. “The Bloomberg 50” includes prominent figures in the business, entertainment, finance, politics, science and technology world. Nadiem’s track record of expanding Gojek to the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam led him to be included in the Bloomberg 50 list alongside Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, Spotify Founder Daniel Ek, pop star Taylor Swift and K-Pop idol group BTS.
  • In May 2019, Nadiem was the youngest figure from Asia to receive the 24th Nikkei Asia Prize for economic and business innovation. Nadiem doubled the prize to Rp 860 million and donated the amount as education scholarship for Gojek drivers’ children. The Nikkei Asia Prize is given to individuals or organisations that contribute to the development of Asia. This award was given to Nadiem due to Gojek’s contributions to the economy, easing customer’s daily life, and increasing the income of their partners. Gojek contributed Rp 55 trillion (US$ 3.85 Billion) towards the Indonesian economy, with the average income of GoRide and GoCar partners increasing by 45% and 42% after joining Gojek, and culinary SMEs transaction volume increasing 55% after becoming GoFood merchant.
  • In 2017, Gojek made it to Fortune’s Top 50 Companies That Changed The World, ranking 17th world wide. In 2019 Gojek once again made it to Fortune’s Top 50 Companies That Changed The World, and was the only Southeast Asian company to have been included twice in the list – this year leaping to number 11 out of 52 global companies.

International Organizations

With Melinda Gates and the Minister of Finance of Indonesia, Sri Mulyani, Nadiem served as one of the commissioners of Pathways for Prosperity for Technology and Inclusive Development that focuses on helping developing countries to adapt with various new digital innovations that change the working culture.


Jadi Menteri, Nadiem Makarim Mundur dari CEO Gojek dan Siap Bawa Inovasi ke Kabinet Kerja Jilid 2

Senin, 21 Oktober 2019 12:05

Nadiem Makarim dan Keluarga

CEO sekaligus founder startup Gojek, Nadiem Makarim, menyatakan mundur dari jabatannya sebagai CEO Gojek.

Hal tersebut ia utarakan di Istanan Negara seusai bertemu dengan Presiden Joko Widodo. Menurut Nadiem, dirinya akan masuk ke dalam jajaran kabinet yang ditentukan oleh Presiden Joko Widodo masa pemerintahan 2019 – 2020.

Kendati demikian Nadiem tidak menyebut secara rinci pada posisi apa dan kementerian mana ia akan bergabung. “Posisi saya di Gojek sudah mundur dan tidak ada kewenangan sama sekali. Tidak ada kekuasaan apapun di dalam Gojek,” ungkap Nadiem. Ia mengatakan hal tersebut adalah sebuah kehormatan untuknya.

Ia pun meminta publik agar menunggu pengumuman langsung dari Presiden Joko Widodo terkait posisi yang akan ia tempati. “Saya sangat senang. Kehormatan buat saya bisa bergabung dengan kabinet. Mengenai posisinya nanti diumumkan sendiri oleh Pak Presiden,” ungkapnya.

Kendati demikian ia tak menyebutkan kapan akan menyatakan mundur secara resmi dari perusahaan yang ia dirikan tersebut. Namun, Pendiri Go-Jek Nadiem Makarim mengaku siap berinovasi di kabinet Joko Widodo-Ma’ruf Amin.

Hal itu disampaikan Nadiem usai bertemu Jokowi di Istana Merdeka, Jakarta, Senin (21/10/2019). Nadiem mengakui dalam pertemuan itu ia diminta masuk ke kabinet.

“Saya merasa ini kehormatan saya diminta bergabung ke kabinet dan saya menerima,” kata Nadiem. Nadiem mengaku sudah diberitahu akan menjadi menteri apa. Namun, ia enggan membocorkan ke wartawan. Ia hanya menegaskan bahwa dirinya siap membawa banyak inovasi di kabinet nanti.

“Sudah pasti dan banyak sekali inovasi yang ingin saya lakukan untuk negara ini. Saya enggak bisa sebut sekarang,” kata dia. Nadiem pun mengaku ia sudah mundur dari Go-Jek, bisnis start up yang ia bangun. “Pasti di Go-Jek sudah mundur. Tidak ada posisi dan kewenangan apapun di Gojek,” ujarnya.

Nadiem sendiri pagi tadi sekitar pukul 10.00 WIB muncul dari gerbang utama mengenakan kemeja putih menarik perhatian wartawan yang sedang meliput di lokasi. Hal ini memunculkan dugaan Nadiem akan masuk ke dalam jajaran kabinet Presiden Jokowi jilid 2.

Ia hanya membalas senyum kepada sejumlah awak media yang gencar melontarkan pertanyaan. Ada yang menyebut dia akan menjadi menteri digital dan ekonomi kreatif. Ada pula yang mengatakan Nadiem bakal bergabung ke Kementerian Pendidikan.

Hingga kini masih belum ada kepastian jabatan apa yang akan disandang Nadiem, kalaupun dia benar masuk kabinet. Presiden Joko Widodo kemungkinan baru akan mengumumkan jajaran kabinetnya menjelang siang ini.

Pria 35 tahun lulusan Universitas Harvard kabarnya akan masuk dalam jajaran pemerintahan sebagai salah satu menteri. Ada yang menyebut dia akan menjadi menteri digital dan ekonomi kreatif.

Ada pula yang mengatakan Nadiem bakal begabung ke Kementerian Pendidikan. Hingga kini masih belum ada kepastian jabatan apa yang akan disandang Nadiem, kalaupun dia benar masuk kabinet.

Pengamat Politik dari Charta Politika, Yunarto menyampaikan bahwa Ngadiem Makarim adalah calon menteri yang cocok dengan bocoran presiden selama ini. “Selama ini presiden manyampaikan bahwa ada menteri yang milenials, dan tentun Ngadiem adalah orang yang cocok untuk itu,” ujarnya.

Sejauh ini Ngadiem Makarim memang dikabarkan akan menjadi menteri yang akan duduk di bidang pendidikan dan koperasi. Yunarto pun menjelaskan bahwa jika Ngadiem nanti menjadi menteri tentu banyak masalah yang akan dihadapinya, karena tidak akan sama iklimnya saat memimpin Gojek dan kementerian.

“Akan susah dia nantinya mendobrak budaya-budaya di Kementerian. Kalau di Gojek kan, dia yang bangun dan bertumbuh bersama. Ini dia datang ke tempat yang sudah bertahun-tahun establish,” ujarnya.

2014 Indonesian Presidential Election

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Presidential elections were held in Indonesia on 9 July 2014, with former general Prabowo Subianto contesting the elections against the governor of Jakarta, Joko Widodo; incumbent president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was constitutionally barred from seeking a third term in office. On 22 July the General Elections Commission (KPU) announced Joko Widodo’s victory. He and his vice president, Jusuf Kalla, were sworn-in on 20 October 2014, for a 5-year term.

According to the 2008 election law, only parties or coalitions controlling 20% of DPR seats or winning 25% of the popular votes in the 2014 parliamentary elections are eligible to nominate a candidate. This law was challenged in the Constitutional Court,but in late January 2014, the court ruled that the requirement would stand for this election. No party exceeded the threshold in the 2014 legislative elections; therefore, two coalitions were formed.

JOKO Widodo was sworn in on Monday as Indonesia’s seventh president, in a ceremony watched by millions of Indonesians live on TV and by visiting dignitaries from some 20 countries.

With a copy of the Quran held over his head, Mr Joko recited the oath of office: “By God, I will carry out my duties as president of the Republic of Indonesia as best and as justly as I can, Upholding the constitution and the laws of the republic, and to serve the motherland and nation.”

He then embraced former president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and both men exchanged seats at the front of the hall.

Monday’s inauguration is the first in Indonesian history to be attended by both an outgoing president and his successor, and hopes are high that the cordial transition will usher in another period of political stability for South-east Asia’s largest economy.

Also present at the ceremony were Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, Brunei Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott, among other guests including US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Mr Joko was elected on July 9 with 53.2 per cent of the vote, defeating rival Prabowo Subianto by over 8 million votes.

Banners throughout the capital, referring to Dr Yudhoyono and Mr Joko by their popular names, proclaimed: “Thank you SBY, welcome Jokowi”.

The session at the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) – which brings together Parliament and the Regional Representatives Council (DPD) – was also for the first time attended by former presidents B.J.Habibie and Megawati Sukarnoputri, as well as the widow of former president Abdurrahman Wahid.

Also present was Mr Prabowo and his running mate Hatta Rajasa.

Before the swearing in, MPR Speaker Zulkifli Hasan paid tribute to Dr Yudhoyono for his contributions to growing Indonesia’s economy and ensuring political stability and peace, and raising the country’s stature over his decade in office.

“We stand tall together and sit at the same level as developed nations today,” Mr Zulkifli said, noting that Indonesia’s diplomatic weight and role in international forums like the G20 and Asean had increased significantly under Dr Yudhoyono.

“We thank him for laying a strong foundation for the continued development of Indonesia. We hope he will continue to serve the nation,” he added.

Mr Joko then delivered a short speech, his first as president, where he acknowledged his election rival Mr Prabowo, who in turn stood and saluted Mr Joko, to applause.

“We all have a shared commitment as a large nation,” Mr Joko said in his speech.

“This the moment for us to work together towards an Indonesia that is politically sovereign, economically self sufficient, and culturally resilient.”

He stressed that a spirit of unity and gotong royong – mutual cooperation – were critical for Indonesia as the country forged ahead.

He also pledged that his government would ensure every citizen throughout the archipelago, including its furthest reaches, would be served, and called on all Indonesians, whether fishermen, farmers, bakso sellers, street vendors, teachers, or academics, to stand together and work for the greater good of the country.

“The grand task of developing our nation cannot be done by the president and vice- president alone. It requires the efforts of all of us,” he said.

“So work, work and work we must to raise the welfare of all of us.”

Mr Joko also indicated that Indonesia’s foreign policy direction would be broadly consistent, saying: “As the largest nation in South-east Asia, we will continue our “free and active” foreign policy to contribute to a stable global order based on sovereignty and social justice.”

At home, he said the country would focus on developing its seas and oceans.

He also cited founding president Sukarno’s call on Indonesians to have a new seafaring spirit to brave the waves to be a strong, prosperous and peaceful nation.

“As your captain, Let me invite all of you to board the ship that is Indonesia.We will unfurl our sails, and brave the waters ahead on our strengths,” he added.

After the two-hour ceremony at the People’s Consultative Assembly, Mr Joko was ferried by horse drawn carriage from central Jakarta to the presidential palace.
