We congratulate the Indonesian people for their robust turnout in today’s election.  This vote was a testament to the durability and strength of the Indonesian people’s commitment to the democratic process and electoral institutions.  We look forward to the General Election Commission’s announcement of the official election results.

This year, as we celebrate 75 years of U.S.-Indonesian diplomatic relations, we look forward to working with Indonesia’s next President-elect and government, as well as the legislative houses, on the shared priorities that benefit the people of both our countries, including addressing climate change, ensuring a prosperous and secure Indo-Pacific, and safeguarding international stability.

The United States and Indonesia are close partners, guided by the principles set forth in our Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.  Together with Indonesia’s new administration, we will work to deliver a better future for our citizens and tackle the most pressing challenges of the 21st century.
