Avowed metalhead wins Indonesian Presidential election

Joko Widodo 640x360

Joko Widodo, a dedicated fan of Heavy Metal music, has won the Indonesian Presidential election.

The Indonesia electoral commission announced that Joko Widodo had been victorious with a 53.15% share of votes cast. His rival, Prabowo Subianto, achieved 46.85%.

Joko is sighted regularly at rock and metal shows in Indonesia, and once owned a bass guitar that had been played and signed by Metallica’s Rob Trujillo. Unfortunately Joko gave up the guitar, in case it was perceived by colleagues and public alike as a bribe.

Indonesia’s metal scene is a burgeoning one, and you can only imagine that it will continue to go from strength to strength now that its President is a confirmed fan of Metallica, Napalm Death and Led Zeppelin.
