Indonesian presidential candidate Joko Widodo (centre) intervied by journalists at an urban development project in Jakarta, on July 22, 2014The reform-minded governor of Jakarta, Joko Widodo, was Tuesday declared the winner of Indonesia's presidential election after a closely-fought race against a controversial ex-general with deep roots in the era of strongman Suharto. Dressed in a traditional patterned shirt, Widodo grinned broadly as election officials in the capital announced that he had beaten Prabowo Subianto by about six percentage points in the fight to lead the world's third-biggest democracy.

By Kanupriya Kapoor and Jonathan Thatcher JAKARTA (Reuters) - Indonesia's new president, Joko "Jokowi" Widodo, promised to make life simpler for investors by beefing up the country's threadbare infrastructure, untangling near-impenetrable regulations and sacking his ministers if they aren't up to the job. The Elections Commission announced on Tuesday that the Jakarta governor had won the hard-fought July 9 election by just over six percentage points, although his rival, Prabowo Subianto, plans to challenge the result in Constitutional Court. A lack of roads, ports, electricity and other basic services, along with corrupt bureaucracies, is beginning to disenchant foreign investors, essential for the resource-based economy to grow. So if we can give solutions for getting business permits, I'm sure that we can improve the infrastructure faster." Jokowi is the first businessman to become president of Indonesia, which took all six of its previous leaders from a political elite.
