Only a few minutes after the General Elections Commission (KPU) announced the Joko 'Jokowi' Widodo-Jusuf Kalla ticket as the winner of the 2014 presidential election, global leaders congratulated the president-elect through their social media accounts.

Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong through his Twitter account @leehsienloong said: "Congratulations to @jokowi_do2 Look forward to working with him to strengthen Indonesia-S'€™pore relations. '€“ LHL."

Tweets written by Lee himself are signed LHL.

The same sentiment was also expressed by Stig Traavik, Norway'€™s ambassador to Indonesia. Through his Twitter account @DubesNorwegia, he said : Dear Mr. President elect @jokowi_do2 -congratulations! I hope you all continue to bike to work at the Palace! @b2w." (nfo)
