Indonesia’s presidential election race heats up

By Jordi Bou

February 14, 2024 - Three contenders are vying to succeed the incumbent Joko Widodo as leader of the world’s third-largest democracy and the most populous Muslim-majority nation.

Defence Minister Prabowo Subianto, with his vice-presidential nominee Gibran Rakabuming, President Joko Widodo's eldest son, is heading in the polls.

Two other presidential candidates, former Jakarta governor Anies Baswedan and former Central Java governor Ganjar Pranowo, are trailing behind.

Voters will be selecting the next president of the world’s third-largest democracy, as well as choosing executive and legislative representatives at all administrative levels.

The incumbent president Joko Widodo, known as Jokowi, is constitutionally barred from seeking a third term.
