Metal Head Prez

Indonesien hat einen neuen Präsidenten gewählt, der Herr Joko Widodo ist amtlicher Metalhead und steht auf Napalm Death, Metallica, Megadeth und Lamb of God und deren Sänger kriegt sich nicht mehr ein: „This is THE ONLY PRESIDENT IN THE WORLD with whom you can sit down and argue about which Slayer record is the best. Holy crap, it's too much! I want the Prez to take me on a diplomatic surf summit to Bali.“

Joko loves bands like Metallica, Napalm Death and Led Zeppelin, and he […] is the next president of Indonesia. Joko got 53.15% of the vote while rival Prabowo Subianto only received 46.85%. Joko was accused of electoral fraud by his rival, but after a vote recount was cleared of all doubts.

Joko, a man of the people, promised more social welfare for the poor. He is popular with the youth of Indonesia and seen as a "clean" politician. Joko was previously a furniture maker who grew up in a small village.
