Last fall, we ran a story about Indonesian presidental hopeful Joko Widodo. Joko loves bands like Metallica, Napalm Death and Led Zeppelin, and he was hoping to run the Indonesian government.
The results are in and Joko is the next president of Indonesia. Joko got 53.15% of the vote while rival Prabowo Subianto only received 46.85%. Joko was accused of electoral fraud by his rival, but after a vote recount was cleared of all doubts.
Joko, a man of the people, promised more social welfare for the poor. He is popular with the youth of Indonesia and seen as a “clean” politician. Joko was previously a furniture maker who grew up in a small village.
