Voting Underway in Indonesia Presidential Elections

Voting Underway in Indonesia Presidential Elections

Tuesday, 16 April 2019 07:37 PM

JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Voting is underway in Indonesia's presidential and legislative elections after a campaign that that pitted the moderate incumbent against an ultra-nationalist former general.

Polling booths opened at 7 a.m. Wednesday in easternmost provinces and voting begins in the capital Jakarta two hours later. Indonesia has three time zones.

About 193 million people are eligible to vote in polls that will decide who leads the world's most populous Muslim-majority nation.

Voting ends at 1 p.m. and so called "quick count" results are expected after about two hours.

The presidential race is a choice between five more years of the steady progress achieved under Indonesia's first president from outside the Jakarta elite, Joko Widodo, or electing Prabowo Subianto, a former general from the era of the Suharto military dictatorship.
