Jakarta: President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo attended a fast-breaking event at the official residence of Regional Representative Council (DPD) chairman Oesman Sapta Odang (OSO) in South Jakarta on Wednesday.
The former Jakarta governor was accompanied by State Secretary Minister Pratikno, Cabinet Secretary Pramono Anung, Coordinating Minister for Maritime Affairs Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan and other high-ranking officials. The event was also attended by People's Consultative Council (MPR) chairman Zulkifli Hasan, Nahdlatul Ulama (NU) chairman Said Aqil Siradja and other political figures.
"I fully appreciate President Jokowi's visit," the DPD leader said.
"President Jokowi have participated in this event for four consecutive times," he noted.
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.
