Joko Widodo Official Winner of the Presidential Election Indonesia
Joko Widodo Official Winner of the Presidential Election Indonesia. In the April presidential election, Indonesia’s current head of state, Joko Widodo, received 55.5 percent of the vote.
This is evident from the official result of the polls that the electoral commission announced tonight, more than a month after the elections.
Widodo’s challenger, former General Prabowo Subianto, received 44.5 percent of the vote. Shortly after the presidential election on April 17, Widodo had already claimed the victory based on the results of polling stations, while his opponent Subianto also claimed the victory.
Widodo is known as a moderate reformer. In the run-up to the presidential election, he made an effort to retain conservative voters. The president went on a pilgrimage to Mecca and chose the extremely conservative Ma’ruf Amin as his vice president.
The elections in Indonesia were an important job, with 193 million voters going to 800,000 polling stations. According to the electoral commission of the country, more than 270 people died from exhaustion when the votes were counted.
In the days following the vote, the employees had to work through the night without a break to count the votes. More than 2,000 employees became ill due to the long work, often in hot rooms.
