Aaron L. Connelly, Research Fellow in the East Asia Program at the Lowy Institue, discusses the Indonesian presidential election between Joko Widodo and Prabowo Subianto. He notes that the presidential race is closer than was anticipated three months ago and outlines the key events that have led to the turnaround in the polls. He also explains that while polling data from the most reliable polling firms has not been released, we can assume that the race is now very close. Aaron outlines what we could expect from a Prabowo presidency, and the positions that each candidate has taken on Indonesia-Australia relations.
