Major General Hotmangaradja Pandjaitan handed over his post as Commander of the 9th Udayana Military District to his successor, Brigadier General Rachmat Budiyanto. Pandjaitan has held the military command for Bali and its surrounding areas since June 26, 2008.

Major General Pandjaitan's new assignment will as a Ministerial Secretary for Politics, Law and Security (Polhukum).

When met by the press at the rehearsal for the handover ceremony, Pandjaitan said he had been much moved by his brief assignment in Bali and would miss living in Bali.

The two-star general, born in Palembang, South Sumatra in 1953, reflected on his 22 month tour of duty in Bali supervising military security for Bali, West Nusa Tenggara and East Nusa Tenggara, he enumerated various successes including the supervision of a peaceful democratic election and the execution of numerous community service projects. He said he felt his time in Bali was too brief and there were many things he still wished to do for the people living with the Udayana command area.

Among his most poignant memories, according to Pandjaitan, was the excellent cooperation he received from the people of his command area in combating terrorism. He called on the people to use introspection and nationalism in order to preserve unity and peace.
