Jakarta’s gubernatorial election will not be until 2017. But in politics, two years is a short period of time. For now, we know that Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama is seeking his second term.

And considering what happened over the weekend, it looks like the fight for Jakarta has already begun. To subscribe please click here
