Victory Speech of Indonesia's New President

Indonesia's President-elect Joko Widodo or Jokowi delivered a victory speech recognizing the spirit of voluntarism among citizens:

This presidential election has sparked new optimism for us, for this nation. Free souls and political responsibilities blossom within the souls of the new generation. The long-lost voluntarism is now back with a new spirit.

And in the spirit of promoting “volunteer participation”, Jokowi asked Facebook users to vote and choose the 34 Cabinet ministers he should include in his government.
