of Indonesia from the Dutch. Hatta was born in Bukittinggi, West Sumatra, Dutch East Indies
(now Indonesia)…..

On 18 August 1945, Hatta was selected as Indonesia's first Vice President by the PPKI to
accompany Sukarno, who had been elected as the nation's first president. As Vice President,
Hatta quickly established himself as the day-to-day administrator of the government, with
Sukarno setting government policy and then trying to win support for it. Although they had
different styles of governing, many agree that the style difference complimented both men's
talents perfectly. They were nicknamed the Duumvirate (Dwitunggal) and until today are hailed
by many as the best President and Vice President partnership in Indonesia's history

Questions numbers: no 18 and 19 refer to the following excerpt;

Sukarno was the leader of the country's struggle for independence from the Netherlands and was
Indonesia's first president from 1945 to 1967. He was first exposed to nationalist ideas while
living under Tjokroaminoto. Later, while a student in Bandung, he immersed himself in Western,
communist, and Islamic political philosophy, eventually developing his own political ideology of
Indonesian-style socialist self-sufficiency. He began styling his ideas as Marhaenism, named
after Marhaen, an Indonesian peasant he met in southern Bandung area, who owned his little plot
of land and worked on it himself, producing sufficient income to support his family.

He was a prominent leader of Indonesia's nationalist movement during the Dutch colonial period,
and spent over a decade under Dutch detention until released by the invading Japanese forces.
Sukarno and his fellow nationalists collaborated to garner support for the Japanese war effort
from the population, in exchange for Japanese aid in spreading nationalist ideas. Upon Japanese
surrender, Sukarno and Mohammad Hatta declared Indonesian independence on 17 August 1945,
whereby Sukarno was appointed as first president. Sukarno led Indonesians in resisting Dutch re-
colonization efforts via diplomatic and military means until the Dutch acknowledgment of
Indonesian independence in 1949.
