Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono
Jakarta, Oct 20: Liberal ex-general Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was sworn in as Indonesia's President on Tuesday, Oct 20 after winning an historic second five-year term.

Susilo swore on the Koran, Islam's holy book, to uphold the constitution during a ceremony in the national assembly in Jakarta which was broadcast around the archipelago of 234 million people.

"By Allah I swear I will adhere to the constitution as faithfully as possible, and will commit myself to the country and the people," the 60-year-old President said.

Susilo's election victory in Jul 2009 confirmed the remarkable political stability that has developed in Indonesia under his leadership.
