Sukarno Sukarno was replaced by himself into because he thinks these names
using spelling colonizers (Netherlands) [7]: 32. He still uses the name of Sukarno

the Proclamation of Indonesian Independence should not be changed, but it is
not easy to change the signature after the age of 50 years [7]: 32. The term
familiar to Soekarno was Bung Karno.

States, a number of journalists to wonder, "Who's maiden name Sukarno?"

Indonesia who only uses one name only or do not have a family name ,

another version, [citation needed] mentioned naming Achmed in front of
the name Sukarno, carried out by diplomats Muslim from Indonesia who
are conducting foreign missions in an effort to gain recognition Indonesian
sovereignty by Arab countries.

burning as implied in every letter to a teacher named Ahmad Hasan Islamic

In 1938 until 1942 Sukarno was exiled to Bengkulu Province.

Sukarno had returned free during the Japanese occupation in 1942.

During the Japanese occupation [Edit | edit source]

At the beginning of the Japanese occupation (1942-1945), the Japanese
government had not noticed movement figures Indonesia mainly to "secure" its
presence in Indonesia. It looks at the movement of the characters 3A with
Shimizu and Mr. Shamsuddin were less popular.

But eventually, the Japanese occupation government attention and

simultaneously utilize Indonesian leaders such as Sukarno, Mohammad Hatta,
and others in any organizations and institutions to attract the hearts of the
Indonesian population. Mentioned in various organizations such as Java Hokokai,
the People Power Center (Son), BPUPKI and PPKI, prominent figures such as
Sukarno, Hatta, Ki Hajar Dewantara, KH Mas Mansyur, and others mentioned and
look so active. And finally the national leaders to cooperate with the Japanese
occupation government to achieve the independence of Indonesia, although
some are forced underground as Sutan Sjahrir and Amir Syarifuddin because
they think Japan is a dangerous fascist.

President Sukarno, when reading the text of the opening speech before
the proclamation of independence, saying that even though we cooperate with
Japan in fact we believe and trust and rely on its own strength.

He was active in the preparations of Indonesia's independence, among

them is to formulate Pancasila, the 1945 Constitution, and the fundamental basis
of the Indonesian government, including formulating the text of the proclamation
of Independence. He was persuaded to step aside to Rengasdengklok.

In 1943, Japanese Prime Minister Hideki Tojo invited the leaders Indonesia
Sukarno, Mohammad Hatta and Ki Bagus Hadikusumo to Japan and received by
Emperor Hirohito. Even emperors gave imperial star (Holy Ratna) to the three
Indonesian leaders. Star conferment it makes Japanese occupation government
was surprised, because it means that all three figures Indonesia was considered
the imperial family of Japan itself. In August 1945, he was invited by Marshal
Terauchi, the Army leadership in the Southeast Asia region Dalat Vietnam who
later stated that the proclamation of independence of Indonesia is the Indonesian
people themselves.

But his involvement in the bodies established by the Japanese

organization makes Sukarno was accused by the Netherlands in cooperation with
Japan, among others, in the case of romusha.

Revolutionary War period [Edit | edit source]

The living room Bung Karno safe house in Rengasdengklok.

Soekarno with national figures began to prepare ahead of the
proclamation of independence of the Republic of Indonesia. After the trial

Committee for Preparatory Work for Indonesian Independence BPUPKI,

Committee for Small consisting of eight people (official), small committee
consisting of nine people / Committee of Nine (which resulted in the Jakarta
Charter) and the Preparatory Committee for Indonesian Independence PPKI,
Soekarno-Hatta establishing the State Indonesia based on Pancasila and the
1945 Constitution.

After seeing Marshal Terauchi in Dalat, Vietnam, Rengasdengklok incident

happened on August 16, 1945; Sukarno and Mohammad Hatta persuaded by the
youth to go away to boarding Homeland Defense forces Rengasdengklok map.
Youth leaders who persuaded among others Soekarni, Wikana, Singgih and Saleh.
The youths demanded that Sukarno and Hatta proclaimed Indonesia's
independence soon, because in Indonesia occurred a power vacuum. This is
because the Japanese had surrendered and the Allied forces had not arrived. But
Sukarno, Hatta and leaders refused on the grounds waiting for clarity regarding
the surrender of Japan. Another reason is the growing Soekarno right moment to
establish the independence of Indonesia was chosen on 17 August 1945 when it
coincided with Ramadan, the Muslim holy month which is believed to be the
revelation of the first month of the Muslims to the Prophet Muhammad, Al
Qur'an. On August 18, 1945, Sukarno and Mohammad Hatta PPKI be appointed
by the President and the Vice President of the Republic of Indonesia. On August
29, 1945 the appointment of the president and vice president be confirmed by
KNIP. On September 19, 1945 Sukarno authority can resolve without bloodshed
events Ikada Stadium where 200,000 people of Jakarta will clash with Japanese
troops were still armed.

On arrival the Allied (AFNEI) led by Lieutenant General. Sir Philip

Christison, Christison finally recognized de facto Indonesian sovereignty after a
meeting with the President. President Soekarno was also trying to solve the crisis
in Surabaya. However, due to the provocations launched troops NICA
(Netherlands) bum Allies (under the UK), burst Event 10 November 1945 in
Surabaya and the death of Brigadier General AWS Mallaby.

Because a lot of provocation in Jakarta at the time, the President finally

move the capital of the Republic of Indonesia from Jakarta to Yogyakarta.
Followed by the vice president and other senior state officials.

President Sukarno and Nikita Khruschev in a meeting of Heads of State

were full of warmth
The position of the President under the 1945 Constitution is the position of
the President as the head of government and head of state (presidential / single
executive). During the revolution, the government system turns into a double
semi-presidential or executive. President Sukarno as Head of State and Sutan
Sjahrir as Prime Minister / Head of Government. It happened because of the vice
president's edict No. X, and a government edict in November 1945 on political
parties. It is taken to the Republic of Indonesia is considered a more democratic

Although the system of government changed, at the time of the

revolution, the position of the President remains the most important, especially
in the face of Madiun in 1948 and when the Dutch Military Aggression II that led
to the President, Vice President Mohammad Hatta and a number of state officials
arrested the Netherlands. Although the existing Emergency Government of the
Republic of Indonesia (PDRI) with chairman Sjafruddin Prawiranegara, but in
reality the international and domestic situation still acknowledge that SoekarnoHatta is the real leader of Indonesia, only policies that can resolve the dispute
between Indonesia and the Netherlands.

government policy made after consulting him.

Myth Dwitunggal Soekarno-Hatta quite popular and stronger among the

masses than to the heads of government of the prime minister. The rise and fall
of the cabinet known as the "cabinet whole corn" makes the President less
trusting multiparty system, even called it a "disease of the party". Not
infrequently, he also intervene to mediate conflicts in a military body which also
affected the rise and fall of the cabinet. October 17, 1952 such events and

Inequality and conflict as a result of a "time bomb" left by western countries who
stamped still concerned with imperialism and colonialism, inequality and fears of
the emergence of a nuclear war that changed civilization, injustice international
agencies in the settlement of the conflict is also a concern. Together with
President Tito (Yugoslavia), Gamal Abdel Nasser (Egypt), Mohammad Ali Jinnah
(Pakistan), U Nu, (Burma) and Jawaharlal Nehru (India) he held Asian-African
Conference which led to the Non-Aligned Movement. Thanks to its services,
many Asian and African countries that gained independence. But unfortunately,
there are still many who experience prolonged conflict until today because of
injustice in problem solving, which is still controlled by powerful countries or
superpowers. Thanks to this addition, many residents of the region of Africa that
does not forget the Soekarno when remembered or knew would be Indonesia.
