Indonesian president wins voters’ approval


The three quick counts all predict that nine of the 38 parties will pass the 2.5 per cent popular vote threshold to win seats in the 560-member parliament.

“There are so many faces it’s a blur,” giggled Astrid Yuspriatmo, as she arrived at her Jakarta polling station to be confronted by a total of 700 names on the three ballot papers.

By Thursday evening many parties were already complaining of myriad electoral violations, prompting the spectre of weeks of legal challenges to results.

Several weeks of horse-trading are now envisaged between the leading parties.

One possibility already being touted is that she will nominate a senior party member to run with Mr Prabowo on an ‘anyone-but-Yudhoyono’ ticket.
