Jakarta: Indonesian President Joko Widodo on Friday appointed Tufiequrahman Ruki as acting chairman of the country`s Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK).
The appointment came after the temporary resignation of the commission`s chairman who has been declared by police as a corruption suspect, Xinhua reported.
Ruki was the first chairman of KPK from 2003-2007 and had successfully led the commission in fighting corruption, winning support from the investors in the country.
The President also named Indrianto Seno Aji, a lecturer of law in leading Indonesian University, and Johan Budi, KPK`s deputy chairman for prevention of graft, as acting deputy chairmen of the body.
KPK was established in 2003 to fight high-level corruption cases in the country.
