Joko Widodo's presidency breaks the mould as he is the first non elite figure in Indonesian politics to be democratically elected, but it remains to be seen how he governs without his party's control in the Indonesian Parliament.

Professor Tim Lindsey, Director of the Melbourne Law School's Centre for Indonesian Law, Islam and Society told ABC News 24 in a live interview that regardless of who is President, Indonesia is very senstitive of its maritime sovereignty and will react strongly to any perceived movement of boats across its waters.The future of the Australia-Indonesia relationship still depends on boat incursions in Indonesian waters.
