This report updates data from previous articles and identifies the shuffling of key positions within the Indonesian National Defense Forces (Tentara Nasional Indonesia, TNI) headquarters, including changes that took place within the army’s central and regional commands between April 2008 and September 2013 (covering primarily the second term of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono’s administration). There were two major developments during this period. First, a simultaneous reshuffle of the armed services’ chiefs of staff one month after the reelection of President Yudhoyono. Second, there were three different TNI commanders-in-chief during this time and four of the army’s chiefs of staff were replaced. Overall, the shuffling indicates a smooth and organized leadership transition from older to younger officers.
