Campaigning in Bali, Indonesian President Sees Peace and Order as Key to Growing Tourism Industry.

(3/30/2009) Indonesia's President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, visiting Bali to campaign for local Democratic Party legislative candidates standing in the April 9 polls and his own bid for re-election in July, pledged greater emphasis on security issues to help the country's tourism industry grow.

Traveling to Bali with his wife, Ani, and son, Edi Baskoro, the President was quoted by the national news agency Antara as saying: "Bali will make greater progress and its security will be even more conducive. We will take actions against anyone wanting to disturb the security in Bali."

Claiming his Democratic Party has been successful in delivering added prosperity to the Indonesian people, he pledge his proposed second term to creating greater safety, peace and greater prosperity in the future.

Legislative elections will be held nation-wide on April 9, 2009. Indonesians will then go to the polls again on July 8, 2009, to participate in only the second direct election of a president in the nation's 64-year history.
