Indonesia’s presidential election result

By Duncan Mil

February 15, 2024 - Defence Minister Prabowo Subianto has secured 58% of the votes in Indonesia’s presidential election, winning in the first round according to unofficial sample tallies by pollsters.

Defence minister Prabowo Subianto took an early lead as Indonesia began counting votes in its presidential election, with a 58.2% share among 90% of ballots in unofficial tallies.

Subianto’s lead could see him win in a single round if sustained.

Ballots counted in a sample of voting stations nationwide, tallied by three pollsters, ranged from 80% to 90% as of 12:00GMT, 19:00WIB (Western Indonesian Time).

Rivals Anies Baswedan and Ganjar Pranowo had 25.1% and 16.7%, respectively, according to the independent pollsters that are conducting “quick counts” at the close of voting.

To win in a single round, a candidate needs more than 50% of votes cast and 20% of the ballot in half of the country’s provinces.

The top two finishers will hold a runoff in June if no candidate wins a majority.
