Rock-loving governor tipped for Indon presidency


The neighboring countries are watching closely next year’s presidential election. Widodo was a popular mayor of Solo. Before he was elected Governor of Jakarta few outsiders know of him. A populist leader may well serve his people but one would imagine a candidate for president of Indonesia, the biggest country in Asean, should at least display a measure of exposure to international affairs and to the world beyond Solo and Jakarta. I am not sure if even Indonesians in Makassar or Kalimantan know much of him.
