The General Electoral Commission (KPU) officially declared President Joko "Jokowi" Widodo the winner of the presidential election on April 17 after completing the national count in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
The final tally showed that the pair Jokowi-Ma & # 39; ruf Amin obtained 85 million votes (55.5%), while the couple Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga Uno obtained 68 million votes (44.5%).
The head of the KPU Arief Budiman said that the losing couple could contest the result of the elections to the Constitutional Court within three days from the official announcement of the vote.
"If there is no legal challenge, the KPU will officially appoint Jokowi and Ma & ru'r as president and vice president for the 2019-2024 period," Arief said.
The Prabowo camp has declared that it will not accept the results of the elections citing what they claim to be a "structural, systemic and massive" electoral fraud. On Monday, the Electoral Surveillance Agency (Bawaslu) rejected their report on electoral fraud, saying that the Prabowo camp had failed to provide concrete evidence.
Gerindra Fadli Zon's party politician said that the Prabowo camp would not bring the electoral dispute to the Constitutional Court, which he said would be "useless". Many of Prabowo's most loyal supporters, however, have said that they will take to the streets to protest against the election results, fueling fears of possible violence.
