Vox populi vox Dei.

Indonesian people have made it very clear during the presidential election yesterday, 8 July 2009. They want President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to continue to lead Indonesia for second term of his Presidency 2009 until 2014.

Based on Indonesian constitution, a person can only be elected president maximum for 2 terms of 5 years each. Yudhoyono was first elected as Indonesian President in 2004 defeated Mrs. Megawati Sukarnoputeri, the then Indonesian president.

Based on the quick counts conducted by more than 5 polster companies right after most polling stations closed, more than 60% of Indonesian voted President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Boediono, 27% voted Megawati Prabowo and the remaining 13% voted Jusuf Kalla and Wiranto.

The official count is expected to be completed by end of this month. But the official ballot counting is predicted to confirm the quick count result.

Despite irregularities allegation from Megawati - Prabowo and Jusuf Kalla - Wiranto camp, the second direct presidential election held in Indonesia yesterday was reported run generally smooth and without report on violence.

Congratulation, Proficiat, Selamat for President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and his running mate Dr. Boediono.

I wish them all the best.

Hail Indonesia....

SUPPORT MEGAWATI SUKARNOPUTERI TO LEAD THE NATION AGAIN


The time is up for Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

He has failed to deliver his presidential campaign in 2004. The economy is worsen today than when he took office. Unemployment rate keep increasing, basic commodities prices soaring, fuel price more than double compared to 5 years ago and university tuition fees are tremendously expensive. Now less student can afford to enter University compared to 10 years ago.

It's now the time for Megawati Sukarnoputri to lead the country again.

She is the true secular nationalist and champion for human rights and in maintaining Pancasila as the nation ideology. Together with Lt. General Prabowo Subianto as her running mate, she will turn the country into new era with prosperity and dignity of the nation among other nations.

Join me to support Megawati Sukarnoputeri for Indonesian next president.

Vote for Megawati and Prabowo Subianto on 8 July 2009.
