#INDONESIA: Presidential Election Enters Final Days; Pres. Widodo Seeks Second Five-Year Term Wednesday

[world politics news]

Indonesian president Joko “Jokowi” Widodo touted his infrastructure achievements and “clean” human rights records as campaigning wrapped up on Saturday, ushering in a three-day cooling-off period ahead of Wednesday’s general election.

Some 200,000 Indonesians, mostly dressed in white, flocked to Jakarta’s main stadium to support Widodo and his vice-presidential running mate Ma’ruf Amin, in a show of force that brought the capital’s downtown area to a standstill since the early morning.
