Indonesias presidential election campaign began last September. Indonesian Election Commission Chairman Aliyev Boudiman appealed to all voters to carefully and rationally evaluate each candidates campaign platform and commitment during the calm period and to actively vote for the future of Indonesia.
In this election, President Zoko Victor, who is seeking re-election, and his running mate, Maruf Amin, will confront the president of the Greater Indonesian Action Party, retired General Prabovo Subianto and his running mate, Sandiaga Uno. Zoko and Prabovo run for president, and their partners run for vice president. The winners will be sworn in in in October for a term ending in 2024. The latest polls show that Zoko is in the lead.
Indonesia will hold a five-year national general election on April 17. In addition to electing the president and vice president, voters will also vote for members of parliament, provincial and county parliaments and local representative councils. The Indonesian government has previously said it has deployed about 600,000 police and military personnel nationwide to ensure the smooth conduct of the elections.
