Anies Baswedan: A future presidential candidate?


A new political movement has been unveiled in Jakarta, promising to challenge the status quo.

Indonesian media magnate Surya Paloh launched the National Democrat Organisation - seen by many observers as a clear signal of intention to contest the 2014 presidential election.

Professor Anies Baswedan, a prominent political analyst, is one of the supporters of the new movement - and a man being talked about as a future presidential candidate. Mishal Husain has been speaking to him.

Impact Asia with Mishal Husain is broadcast weekdays at 1300, 1330 and 1400 GMT on the BBC World News channel. Find out more information about regional broadcast times here.
