    Jokowi, Kalla Call on Election Executors to be Neutral

    Tobapos -- Presidential candidate Joko Widodo (Jokowi) and his running mate Jusuf Kalla (JK) have called on executors of the upcoming presidential elections throughout Indonesia to maintain neutrality.

    "We also call on the military, police, and intelligence agency to uphold neutrality and professionalism and ensure that the presidential election is carried out fairly, justly, and peacefully," Jokowi told the press here on Thursday.

    He asked every stakeholder to maintain and increase neutrality during the implementation of the election.

    Jokowi asked certain factions to stop conducting inappropriate and disrespectful activities during the campaigning period, such as dissemination of lies, intimidation, money politics, and manipulation of votes.

    "Let the supporters of Jokowi-JK strengthen the line to win the presidential election respectfully," he said.

    He called on the Indonesian people to utilize the momentum in changing Indonesia through good and noble deeds.

    Indonesia will be organizing a free and democratic presidential election on July 9, 2014, which will be contested by only two pairs of presidential and vice presidential candidates: Prabowo Subianto-Hatta Rajasa and Jokowi-JK.

    The pre-election campaign period is between June 4 and July 5, 2014.

    Prabowo Subianto is a retired military general and the founder of the Great Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra), while his running mate, Hatta Rajasa, is a former coordinating minister for economic affairs and the chairman of the National Mandate Party (PAN).

    Jokowi is Jakarta's governor and a cadre of the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP), while his running mate, JK, is a former vice president and a senior politician of the Golkar Party. (ant/adm)
