Wednesday 9 July 2014, is a big day for Indonesia as on that day the Indonesian people will vote for the successor of incumbent Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono who had been given the mandate to lead two five-year presidential terms between 2004 and 2014 (and who is the only president in the era of Reformasi that was re-elected by the people). Now, the people have to choose between Joko Widodo (Jokowi), joined by running mate Jusuf Kalla, and Prabowo Subianto, who is joined by running mate Hatta Rajasa.
As there are only two contenders there will be only one election round, meaning that the winner takes it all. Tomorrow afternoon (local Jakarta time), we will present the live quick count score on our website.
On Wednesday, Indonesia’s financial markets are closed.
