Indonesia President Widodo Declares Election Win, Citing Unofficial Results

According to a report by Reuters, on Thursday, Indonesian President Joko Widodo declared victory in the nation's presidential election, saying that unofficial results showed that he received 54 percent of the popular vote.

Unofficial โ€œquick countsโ€ of sample votes by private pollsters show that Widodo's opponent, former military general Prabowo Subianto, secured just 45 percent of the vote.

While speaking at a news conference in Jakarta, Widodo reportedly said, "We must wait for the official result.

But 12 pollsters have given clear results... we convey that the Jokowi-Maruf ticket got 54.5 percent of the vote while Prabowo got 45.5 percent."
