Indonesian first family posing after casting their vote in Bogor yesterday (left to right): Eddy Baskoro (president second son), President Yudhoyono, Mrs. Ani Yudhoyono and their daughter in law Anissa Pohan.

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....
