Graphic News

April 17, 2019 -- The world’s largest single-day elections will see 192 million voters electing the president, members of parliament and almost 20,000 other positions in regional councils across 18,000 islands.

In the presidential race, incumbent Joko Widodo, a former furniture salesman who ran on pro-poor platform in 2014, is standing for re-election against Prabowo Subianto, a former military general he defeated in 2014.

Regarding the legislative elections, more than 245,000 candidates will contest over 20,000 seats at five levels of government.

In just six hours, votes will be cast at 809,500 polling stations scattered across 1.9 million sq km of the world’s third largest democracy.

The millennial vote considered key to victory as around 40% of eligible voters, some 80 million people, are aged 17 to 35.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
