JAKARTA - With the general election nearing, the Indonesian Military (TNI) has decided to rotate its high-ranking officers, including the installation of Maj. Gen. Mulyono as Jakarta Military Commander, replacing Maj. Gen. Hudawi Lubis.

TNI spokesman Col. Bernadus Robert revealed the TNI had rotated 60 high-ranking officers, including Mulyono, former operation assistant to the Army chief of staff, and Hudawi, who would be posted in the role of Army expert staff coordinator.

"The rotation is aimed at boosting the performance of the TNI in the future," Bernadus said as quoted by Antara news agency recently.

Besides Mulyono and Hudawi, the TNI also rotated Indonesia Defence University rector Lt. Gen. Subekti to TNI headquarters, but it had yet to decide who would replace Subekti.
