Jokowi-Ma’ruf Amin still excel based on KPU’s count

Jakarta (ANTARA) – The presidential and vice presidential candidate pair number 01, Joko Widodo-Ma’ruf Amin, is still ahead of pair number 02 Prabowo-Sandiaga Uno, based on the general Election Commission’s “real count” in Jakarta on Saturday.

Jokowi-Ma’ruf was in the lead with 54.88 percent (3,974,960 votes), while Prabowo-Sandiaga was at 45.12 percent (3,267,434 votes).

At present, there were 37,817 ballots from 813,350 polling stations entered through the KPU’s official “real count” page (elections2019.kpu.go.id), or around 4.6 percent.

Meanwhile, the commission confirmed that the vote counting information system (Situng) would not affect the determination of the 2019 election results because the official recapitulation was still being done manually.

The vote recapitulation took place from April 18 to May 22, 2019, and was carried out manually and in stages, starting at the sub-district level, then the district/city level, the province and then the national level.
