Indonesia’s presidential, parliamentary and regional elections take place on Wednesday.
There’s a lot to be decided in one day and whoever comes out on top will lead the world’s largest Muslim country until 2024.
Logistically, the elections will be quite a feat. Take in some of these numbers:
- almost 245,000 candidates across the country
- 800,000 polling stations
- close to 192 million registered voters
- only six hours to vote
- about 80 million millenial voters – almost the equivalent of Germany’s population
In the presidential race, it’s between the incumbent, Joko Widodo, who rose from humble beginnings to run on a pro-poor platform in 2014, and Prabowo Subianto, a former military general he defeated last time around.
