Komisi Pemilihan Umum telah menetapkan pemenang pemilihan umum presiden dan wakil presiden 2014, yaitu pasangan calon nomor urut 2: Joko Widodo (Jokowi) dan Jusuf Kalla (JK).

During my research (for my thesis), it is important to know how many trips (and days) are spent by three U.S. secretaries of state, Colin Powell (2001-2005), Condoleezza Rice (2005-2009) and Hillary Clinton (2009-2013). As many of us know, Secretary Clinton, under President Obama, is doing this ‘pivot’ strategy, otherwise known today as ‘rebalancing,’ toward the Asia-Pacific region. The intention is to signal an increasing attention to this growing region, and the United States finds it important.
