A A A -  President Joko Widodo on Thursday urged people to wait for the final result of the voting recapitulation of the 2024 Presidential Election currently handled by the General Elections Commission (KPU).

Jokowi's remarks were conveyed in response to quick count results from several survey agencies published on Wednesday (February 14) afternoon indicating that presidential-vice presidential candidate pair Prabowo Subianto and Gibran Rakabuming Raka are leading over other candidates.

"Quick count is a scientific method. However, we should wait for the official results from the KPU. Be patient," the president said after opening the Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) here.

He also reminded residents to report immediately to the authorities if they found evidence of electoral fraud with the General Elections Supervisory Agency (Bawaslu) and the Constitutional Court, which are the agencies authorized to rule on election violations and complaints.

More than 204 million Indonesian voters cast their ballots on Wednesday (February 14) to elect the president and vice president, members of the Indonesian House of Representatives (DPR RI), Regional Representatives Council (DPD), and regional legislatures (DPRD) at the provincial, city, and district levels.

The three candidate pairs vying for the national leadership in this year's election are Anies Baswedan and Muhaimin Iskandar as candidate number one; Prabowo Subianto and Gibran Rakabuming Raka as candidate number two; and Ganjar Pranowo and Mahfud MD as candidate number three.

According to KPU Regulation No. 3 of 2022, the nationwide vote recapitulation for the 2024 Election is scheduled to take place from February 15 to March 20, 2024. (ANT)
