Earlier this week, Chinese President Xi Jinping congratulated Vladimir Putin on winning another term as Russia’s president. President Vladimir V. Putin was declared the winner after garnering a total of 87.33 percent of all votes cast.

Meanwhile, the Head of State also congratulated Indonesia’s President-elect, Prabowo Subianto, for his victory in the 2024 Presidential election. She has assured the Indonesian President-elect of continued cooperation between Tanzania and the Asian State.

“To His Excellency Prabowo Subianto, President-Elect of the Republic of Indonesia; on behalf of the Government and the People of the United Republic of Tanzania, I convey our warm congratulations on your victory in the 2024 Indonesian presidential election. “This momentous outcome for you and your country is a testimony to the confidence that the People of Indonesia have in you. Rest assured of our continued cooperation with Indonesia,” She wrote.

 

Prabowo Subianto, who was Indonesia’s defense minister, was declared the winner of last month’s presidential election in the world’s third-largest democracy on Thursday.

The President-elect will assume office in October, taking over from President Joko Widodo, who is more popularly known as Jokowi.

Eighty percent of 205 million registered voters across 17,000 islands and three time zones trooped to polling centers on February 14, making it the world’s largest single-day election.

Mr. Prabowo’s votes exceeded the majority required to avoid a runoff. Mr. Anies and Mr. Ganjar got 25% and 16%, respectively.
