Six people have died and 200 injured in civil unrest in the Indonesian capital, its governor, Anies Baswedan, said on Wednesday after the election commission confirmed President Joko Widodo had won last month’s election.
“As per 9 o’clock this morning, there were 200 people hurt being brought to five hospitals,” the governor told broadcaster TVOne.
“The number of people dead was six,” he said, adding that hospitals were conducting post mortems to determine the cause of death.
Widodo ran with Islamic cleric Ma'ruf Amin against former military general Prabowo Subianto, who secured 45 percent of votes, according to unofficial "quick counts" of sample votes by private pollsters.
Indonesian authorities warned on Thursday against unrest as a firebrand ex-general rejected unofficial election results that appeared to hand President Joko Widodo another term as leader of the world’s third-biggest democracy.
