Increased security measures were put in place in Jakarta on Sunday, during Joko Widodo's inauguration for his second and final five-year presidential term.
Some 30,000 policemen and other security forces were reportedly deployed around the presidential palace and the parliament building to safeguard the elected president. Several blocked streets and officers diverting traffic were seen in the capital.
Widodo's supporters held rallies for the president, waving a giant Indonesian flag on the street.
Joko Widodo took the oath of office for a second term alongside Ma'ruf Amin, after securing 55.50 percent of the vote against former Army lieutenant General Prabowo.
