According to the political pundits Anies Baswedan has got “the right stuff” to be a future president.

He comes from a famous family with a creditable past — his grandfather AR Baswedan was an independence activist.

He was raised in Yogyakarta, the cultural center of Java, the son of academics. His wife Fery Farhati is a psychologist. He’s overseas educated, unafraid of criticizing the government and isn’t squeamish about attacking Islamic hardline violence.
