Djarot Saiful Hidayat is now acting governor of Jakarta, following a two years jail sentence handed to the outgoing governor Basuki Tjahaja, for blasphemy.

BBC reports that Basuki Tjahaja Purnama, also known as Ahok, was accused of insulting Islam by referring to a verse in the Koran in a campaign speech last year.

Mr Purnama, a Christian in Muslim-majority Indonesia, has denied blasphemy and plans to appeal, after judges handed down a sentence that was harsher than expected.

Mr Purnama was taken into custody immediately after the verdict was read out, and his case was seen as a test of the country's religious tolerance.
