This is a list of Presidents of Indonesia. The presidency was established during the formulation of the 1945 constitution by the Badan Penyelidik Usaha Persiapan Kemerdekaan Indonesia (BPUPKI), a research body for the preparation of Indonesian independence. On 18 August 1945, the Panitia Persiapan Kemerdekaan Indonesia (PPKI), which was created on 7 August to replace BPUPKI, selected Sukarno as the country's first president.
