JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — Jakarta Gov. Joko Widodo, who captured the hearts of millions of Indonesians with his common man image, won the country's presidential election with 53 percent of the vote, officials said Tuesday.
Prabowo Subianto, who lost Indonesia's presidential election, will not go to the Constitutional Court to challenge the results of the ballot announced on Tuesday by the Elections Commission, his lawyer said. "It is not the domain of the Constitutional Court to handle procedural disputes," Mahendradatta, Prabowo's lawyer, told reporters. It was not immediately clear, however, whether Prabowo would appeal to a lower court. Prabowo has refused to concede defeat and has withdrawn from the vote counting process.
