Jakarta: The national campaign team of presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto has claimed that the Great Indonesia Movement (Gerindra) Party chairman will not submit a lawsuit to the Constitutional Court.
"We will not submit a lawsuit to the Constiutional Court," the team's spokesperson Dahnil Anzar Simanjuntak said here on Wednesday.
Prabowo earlier said that his team will reject the result of the election vote count. Incumbent President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo's rival alleged that the result is based on a fraudelent tabulation process.
Indonesia held its first-ever simultaneous general and presidential elections on April 17. Voters elected the president, vice president and members of national and local legislative bodies on the same day.
Based on the official data from KPU, as many as 192 million people were eligible to vote this year. In the meantime, more than 800 thousand polling stations were open across the country.
Similar with the 2014 presidential race, this year's presidential race was only contested between Jokowi and Prabowo. Five years ago, the former Jakarta governor won 53 percent of the votes against the former Army general.
According to reports, all quick count surveys from respectable pollsters showed that Jokowi is the likely winner of the 2019 presidential race. However, Jokowi urged his supporters to wait for KPU's official announcement on May 22.
