First Spouse of Indonesia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This article lists the "Spouses" of the Presidents of Indonesia rather than "First Ladies". Out of six presidents of Indonesia until 2013, one is female (Megawati Sukarnoputri), so the neutral word "spouse" is used. State convention of Indonesia gives the title Ibu Negara for the First Lady. Literally it means "mother of the country". No equivalent term is designated for the male counterpart ("first gentleman")so far.

This is a list of spouses of the president of Indonesia.
