Jakarta (ANTARA News) - Head of the National Intelligence Agency (BIN) Lieutenant General Marciano Norman said there had not been any information to date on efforts to thwart the presidential inauguration of Joko Widodo.

"Based on intelligence data, there has not been any effort to thwart the presidential inauguration," Marciano stated during his visit to the Peoples Consultative Assembly in Jakarta on Thursday.

Chairman of the assembly Zulkifli Hasan as well as Deputy Chairmen Oesman Sapta Odang, Mahyudin, and EE Mangindaan met with Police and Military delegates, including TNI Commander General Moeldoko and Police Chief General Sutarman.

They discussed the security preparation for the inauguration of President Joko Widodo and Vice-President M. Jusuf Kalla.

Marciano noted that his institution has coordinated with several security agencies to maintain a peaceful atmosphere.

"Our efforts will be to ensure a successful inauguration day awaited by all Indonesians," Marciano added.

The Intelligence Head reminded the leaders of the assembly to reach the venue in time to avoid unwanted issues.

"What we are worried about is the availability of the Chairman and Deputy Chairmen of the assembly. They must not reach late for the event as it might create issues such as intercepting or some other negative efforts. So please dont come late, maintain your health and dont fall sick," Marciano remarked.

Joko Widodo and Jusuf Kalla will be inaugurated at the Peoples Consultative Assembly complex on Monday, Oct 20.

After his inauguration, Jokowi will deliver a 7-minute speech and meet the state leaders at a banquet in the assembly building.
