In Indonesia, official results have confirmed the re-election of President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo. He defeated former special forces military commander Prabowo Subianto by 10 percentage points. However, Prabowo has rejected the final tally, alleging “widespread cheating,” and says he plans to challenge the results in court. Prabowo Subianto is the former son-in-law of Indonesia’s longtime dictator Suharto and had made plans to stage mass arrests of political opponents and his current allies if he won.
