indonesia elections 2019 Google Doodle , General elections will be held in Indonesia on 17 April 2019. For the first time in the country’s history, the president, the vice president, and members of the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR), will be elected on the same day with over 190 million eligible voters. Sixteen parties will be participating in the elections nationally, with four participating for the first time.

In the presidential election, which follow a direct, simple majority system, incumbent Indonesian President Joko Widodo, known as Jokowi, will run for re-election with senior Muslim cleric Ma’ruf Amin as his running mate against former general Prabowo Subianto and former Jakarta deputy governor Sandiaga Uno for the five-year term between 2019 and 2024. The election will be a re-match of the 2014 presidential election, in which Widodo defeated Prabowo. The legislative election will see over 240,000 candidates competing for over 20,000 seats in the MPR and local councils for provinces and cities/regencies all being contested, with over 8,000 competing for the People’s Representative Council seats alone.

The election has thus been described as “the most complicated single-day ballot in global history.”
