Many less badminton knowledge INA people agree Icuk as PBSI head just because he is ex badminton's player.
A lot of Badminton's people in Indonesia, we are very welcome to badminton's person like Mr. Justian, Mr. Juniarto (Tangkas) or Mr. Anwari (Djarum/Central Java) or others but excactly not Icuk.
PBSI head are voted by Pengdas not badminton players or badminton club. Some of Pengda heads are Political person from some political party not badminton people.
Some problems was happened when PBSI candidate from non military person, some Pengda-s tried anything when they didn't agree something.
Remember, Mr. Justian lost to Mr Chairul Tanjung in narrow votes, but 2 years then Mr. Chairul was shooted down by the Pengdas who support him in election with the reason 21 Pengda-s wanted it bla bla bla

A rumor says that Icuk tamely gave up in his run for head of PBSI because he is promised a decent place in the 2008-2012 organization.

Congratulations for TNI Chief, General Djoko Santoso, for officially elected as new head of PBSI, 2008-2012 period.
(Like there's any other candidate, anyway!)
Good luck, General. You have VERY heavy burden on your shoulder from now on.
As for Icuk, well, better luck next time...

Once again PBSI chief has military background, waiting his ambition to set badminton more popular in Indonesia (as we know the most popular sport here is no one but football), here's news article taken from The Jakarta Post :
New PBSI chief Djoko sets sights on silverware
Niken Prathivi , The Jakarta Post , Jakarta | Sun, 11/16/2008 10:25 AM | Sports
Newly elected chairman of the Indonesian Badminton Association (PBSI) Djoko Santoso has pledged to popularize the sport at home and win silverware abroad.
"My ambition is to make the sport more popular among Indonesians and pick up the world champion titles," said the National Military chief during a media conference following his election Saturday.
"To realize the vision, we must strengthen our ties of togetherness, kinship, unity and solidarity. That's the basic principle officials and athletes must implement to develop badminton," he added.
Djoko succeeded Sutiyoso, a retired Army general. His tenure will expire in 2012.
His bid to win the election received a boost when former world champion Icuk Sugiarto withdrew in the race a few days before a national badminton convention at the Sultan Hotel. Icuk is still serving a two-year ban from the association.
Icuk, who was relieved from his position as chairman of the Jakarta badminton chapter, said he had retracted his bid to protect the unity of the association.
"I thank you all for giving me the mandate to lead the PBSI," Djoko said at the convention after he was unanimously elected chairman.
Djoko gained support from representatives of 32 participating provincial chapters. The East Nusa Tenggara chapter did not send a representative.
Asked about what steps he would take in his new role, Djoko said he had not yet formulated a plan of action.
"I'm a new guy in the federation, so I still need help from Sutiyoso in forming the program," he said.
The immediate administrative challenges facing the new chairman will be to form a new board of associations. He will be assisted by the four-strong team comprising Jakob Rusdianto (East Java), Anwari (Central Java), Alexander Daud (North Sulawesi) and Johanes (North Sumatra).
Sutiyoso said he was willing to discuss the future of the PBSI with Djoko.
2004 Olympic gold medalist Taufik Hidayat said he expected the new leadership would recruit young officials who could contribute fresh ideas to the organization.
"I also still hope that one day our athletes will be given the chance to speak up during the convention," he said.

Brace yourselves, badminton fans... There's a big possibility we will see a Candra Wijaya - Luluk Hadiyanto pair fron INA in 2009... Old lions joining the fray as an independent professional MD pair...
