Sutiyoso
Sutiyoso
(born 6 December 1944 in Semarang, Central Java) is an Indonesian politician and former general who was the Director of the State Intelligence Agency from 8 July 2015 - 9 September 2016. [1][2][3] Known informally as 'Bang Yos', he was the governor of Jakarta, the country's capital, during a turbulent period from 1997. During this time there was a total of five presidents in Indonesia (Suharto, Habibie, Gus Dur Wahid, Megawati, and SBY). The transitions between presidents were often accompanied by much turmoil and disturbance in the streets of Jakarta. Sutiyoso
Sutiyoso
also served as chairman of the Badminton Association of Indonesia
Indonesia
(PBSI) for the period 2004-2008.[4] He is particularly known for his work in supporting the introduction, in early 2000, of the TransJakarta, a bus rapid transit system, in Jakarta.[5] It is widely agreed that better public transport arrangements are badly needed in Jakarta
Jakarta
so the introduction of the Trans Jakarta
Jakarta
system was seen as an important initiative. However it has not proved easy to ensure that the Trans Jakarta
Jakarta
bus system works well so the arrangements are currently regarded as being of mixed success. Sutiyoso

announced he was standing for the presidency of Indonesia

in the 2009 and 2014 election but failed to get enough support to win the nomination. He was also chairman of the Indonesian Justice and Unity Party between 2010-2015. Notes[edit]
