Former Indonesian President Habibie dies at 83

The family of former Indonesian President Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie, who allowed democratic reforms and an independence referendum for East Timor,  says he has died. He was 83, ONA reports citing Washington Post. 

His unpopular presidency was the shortest in modern Indonesia’s history, but was transformative.

Habibie’s son Thareq Kemal Habibie said Indonesia’s third president died Wednesday at Jakarta’s Gatot Subroto army hospital, where he had been undergoing treatment for heart problems since Sept. 1.
