Former US President Barack Obama is expected to spend a five-day vacation in Bali before he departs for Yogyakarta and Jakarta. He will reportedly be accompanied by his wife Michelle, their daughters Malia and Sasha, and other Obama family members. He will also bring several special staff members on the vacation, as quoted from The Jakarta Post.
Ninth regional military command (Kodam IX) Udayana commander General Komaruddin Simanjutak said that he heard the news but the military command did not have a security operation command for the visit or official notification.
“As of now, we have not yet received any official notification. However, we have heard about that [Obama’s vacation plan],” said Komarudin.
The 44th President of the United States would arrive in Bali on June 23 and vacation with his family on the island until June 28.
Komarudin added that he did not yet know where Obama would stay during his vacation to Bali. “In which part of Bali he will stay – Gianyar, Kuta or Nusa Dua – I don’t know yet,” he said.
