Listen to our Year-Ender 2014. Time now to look back at some of the major stories of 2014. It's been just over two months since Indonesian President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo was inaugurated, following the closest and most bitterly fought election in the country's history Mr Widodo defeated former general Prabowo Subianto in the July election by just over six percentage points, with 53 per cent of the nearly 130 million votes cast. With the victory, Mr Widodo brought the promise of major reforms to the world's third largest democracy. 938LIVE's Avril Hong spoke to two political experts to find out if the new leader can live up to his campaign promises in the year ahead.
