Hajji Azwar Abubakar (born 21 June 1952 in Banda Aceh) is the current Administrative Reform Minister of Indonesia.

Biography[edit]

Abubakar was born in Banda Aceh, Indonesia on 21 June 1952.[1] He received a bachelor's degree in architecture from the Bandung Institute of Technology, later receiving a master's degree in management from Syiah Kuala University in Aceh.[1][2] After graduation, he began working as a consultant and entrepreneur.[2] After the resignation of President Suharto in 1998, he became active in politics, co-founding the Aceh branch of the National Mandate Party.[2]

From 2000 to 2004, Abubakar served as the deputy governor of Aceh, later becoming the acting governor from 2004 to 2005 after Governor Abdullah Puteh was convicted of corruption.[1] As acting governor he handled the aftermath of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami, with the amount of civil servants at first thought to have been reduced by almost two-thirds.[3] He also had to deal with the Free Aceh Movement.[2] He ran for governor in 2006 with Prosperous Justice Party member Nasir Djamil as his deputy, but lost to Irwandi Yusuf.[2][4]

Abubakar was elected to the People's Representative Council in 2009, representing Aceh.[2] He became a member of Commission I, which oversees defence and foreign affairs.[5] On 19 October 2011, Abubakar replaced EE Mangindaan as the Administrative Reform Minister of Indonesia.[6]

Reception[edit]

Djamil viewed Abubakar's appointment as a way for President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono to strengthen his support in Aceh and from the National Mandate Party.[5] Abubakar's appointment as minister was met warmly in Aceh, with several prominent Acehnese calling him "the best son of Aceh".[5]

Personal life[edit]

Abubakar is married to Mutia Safrila, and together they have four children.[2] According to the Report on Material Wealth of State Figures (Laporan Harta Kekayaan Penyelenggara Negara) published in February 2011, Abubakar has a net worth of over Rp 1.2 billion (US$ 150,000), the lowest of the six ministers appointed in October 2011.[7]
