President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo inaugurated Admiral Yudo Margono as Commander of the Indonesian National Defense Forces (TNI), Monday (12/19), at the State Palace, Jakarta.

The inauguration was carried out based on Presidential Decree (Keppres) Number 91/TNI of 2022 on Dismissal and Appointment of Commander of the Indonesian National Defense Forces which was stipulated in Jakarta on December 19, 2022.

“In the name of Allah, I swear that I will be loyal to the Unitary State of the Republic of Indonesia which is based on Pancasila and the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia and will implement all laws and regulations as strictly as possible for the sake of my service to the nation and state,” said Yudo following the oath read by President Jokowi.

Yudo also promised to carry out his duties and uphold the ethics of his position as TNI commander.

“That in carrying out my duties, I will uphold the ethics of the office, work my best with a sense of responsibility and that I will uphold the soldier’s oath,” said Yudo.

Previously, at a Plenary Meeting, Monday (12/13), the House of Representatives (DPR) approved Yudo Margono, who previously served as Chief of Staff for the Indonesian Navy to become the TNI commander. Yudo replaces his predecessor, General TNI Andika Perkasa, who is entering retirement.

Yudo Margono was born in Madiun, November 26, 1965. He graduated from the Naval Academy (AAL) in 1988. (JW/UN) (EST/MMB)
