  • Will it all kick off today or tomorrow after the election results are announced?

    Should we lock the doors and stay in?

    Will the KPU delay the results?

    Will we see some crazy rioting?

    Will the losing side just concede quietly because SBY asked them to nicely and bought a nice dinner?

    hype or reality?

    There's supposed to be some demo starting at 2pm today at Bundaran HI (Hotel Indonesia traffic circle) with about 2,000 or so demonstrators.

      Oh as I wrote before, some offices near the area told the employees to go home at 3pm today. Better be safe if you are near Sudirman-Thamrin area. The police has been in Bundaran HI since this morning.

        But the Hotel Indonesia demos are usually very civilised. It's the factory burning, tollroad closing demos I'm more worried about.

          Yes, usually it is. But who knows? I'm worried if the demo doesn't stay put there and march around.

                I've been out all morning in Jakarta (not near KPU) and the traffic is about 25% of normal. Lots seem to have had a day off.

                  Isn't it against Islam to act violently during Ramadan? Is that why they want to delay? If people do riot, just how Islamic is Indonesia really to break one of the most sacred holidays for Muslims? Let's see what happens.

                    One of my company office in Jakarta close at around 3 PM to avoid worst possibility

                          Prabowo has withdrawn from the election. (Rather than concede defeat, I guess)

                          so presumably, no problems anymore.

                            I'm going to quote something i saw on another site. "[COLOR=#4C4C4C]according to UUD42-2008, article 245, It states that a candidate that withdrawals from an election before the final result can get a minimum of 24 months of jail time." Did Probowo just break the law?

                              Around menteng I saw groups of prabowo supports with flags. A few men were carrying knives/sticks/swords. There is a chance things can be pretty nasty.
