(9/1/2014)

On Thursday, August 21, 2014, the Indonesian Constitutional Court (MK) rejected challenges made to the results of the July 9th presidential election made by Prabowo Subianto and Hatta Rajasa.

Prabowo’s defeat in both the polls and the election appeal process have cleared the way for Joko Widodo and Jusuf Kalla to assume, respectively, the presidency and vice-presidency of the Republic on October 20, 2014.

The Court found the objections and anomalies cited by Prabowo’s election team insufficient to nullify the results of the poll or call a new election.

Clashes were reported on the streets of Jakarta as the MK took six-hours to read their decision affirming Joko Widodo’s election. Dozens were sent to the hospital with minor injuries and for tear gas irritation. 

Bemoaning the quality of the election process, Prabowo Subianto has refused to offer a message of congratulation to Joko Widodo who is now officially declared to become Indonesia’s 7th President.

Joko Widodo has promised that his presidential cabinet will depart from the assortment of political hacks selected for their political party association rather than any professional expertise. To the delight of many, Widodo is expected to appoint professionally qualified and highly skilled technocrats needed to achieve the ambitious development goals laid out by the new president.

Many believe Joko Widodo’s transition team is asking the outgoing administration to eliminate fuel subsidies and substantially increase fuel costs before the swearing in of the new government. Such a move, though politically unpopular, would free up large amounts of capital for much needed infrastructure projects.
