"The incumbent president Joko Widodo declares victory in elections in Indonesia – just as the challenger Prabowo Subianto."
"– We have evidence of widespread electoral fraud, says Subianto."
"Several unofficial exit polls gave the 57-year-old Widodo victory already on the day of the election. According to these he received about 55 percent of the votes, while his 67-year-old contender Prabowo Subianto was around ten percentage points behind."
"– We need to await the official result. But the twelve measurements have yielded clear results, " says 57-year-old Widodo during a press conference in the capital Jakarta."
"the President further says that he received 54.5 per cent of the votes and that Subianto landed on 45.5 per cent. The latter claim, however, that he won the election with reference to internal surveys that show that he got 62 percent of the votes."
"– We have declared victory because we have evidence of widespread voter fraud in several districts across Indonesia, " says Prabowo Subianto at a different press conference."
"With 192 million persons entitled to vote at around 18 000 islands is the choice in Indonesia is a huge logistical challenge. The huge country voted in for eight hours on Wednesday in an election to both parliament and the presidency. The whole thing is reported to have gone quiet, but it is Indonesia's most senior police chief Tito Karnavian to warn of any protests to the result of the result."
"– I urge all not to participate in demonstrations, whether it is to celebrate or express dissatisfaction, " he says."
