Exactly 2 days before the general election in Indonesia, I was hoping to hear for once some good news via the Indonesian TV news channel. I hoped everything went well with the election especially for residence living abroad. However, all the news channel were airing problems that occured in relation to the election one after another. Some highlights which I remembered:
- 30% of voting boxes were destroyed in one of the district of my city due to flood (Bogor = rain city, should be better prepared for this)
- Indonesian citizens who were not able to use their voting rights in Aussie, Hongkong, even Germany!
- Problems with Ahok who flipped out during the voting session in Japan.
- Investigation of vote-rigging in Malaysia.
