Challenger claims cheating in Indonesian electionsWorld | 18 Apr 2019 7:03 pm
Indonesia's presidential challenger Prabowo Subianto said today that cheating had occurred across the country during this week's election, which
unofficial results showed incumbent President Joko Widodo had won, Reuters reports.
"We have declared [victory] because we got evidence of widespread cheating at the village, sub-district and district levels across Indonesia," Prabowo told reporters, minutes after Widodo declared victory at a separate news conference.
The former army general claimed a “real count” from more than 320 polling stations had placed him in the lead with 62 percent of votes, the Jakarta Post reports.
