The documentary ‘Dirty Voting’, which exposes election fraud in the Indonesian presidential election, has been viewed 4.58 million times in just one day of its release.
On the 11th (local time), the approximately 2-hour Indonesian documentary ‘Dirty vote’ was posted on YouTube.
This documentary, created by Indonesian investigative journalist and filmmaker Dandi Dwi Raksono, exposes several lawyers and current election fraud in Indonesian politics.
The main targets of the documentary are Indonesian President Joko Widodo, the candidate he supports, Prabowo Subianto, and President Joko Widodo’s eldest son and vice presidential candidate, Gibran Rakabooming Raka.
In the video, the director claimed, “President Joko Widodo had an influence on Ghibran becoming a vice presidential candidate.”
According to Indonesian election law, the age limit for running as a presidential or vice-presidential candidate is 40 years or older.
However, last year, Surakarta Mayor Gibran, who is in his 30s, was able to run for office, citing a constitutional appeal filed by the Constitutional Court stating that ‘persons elected as heads of local governments should not be subject to age restrictions.’
However, during this process, controversy arose because the head of the Constitutional Court attended the case instead of avoiding it, even though he was related to the issue of conflict of interest among public officials due to his relationship with President Joko Widodo’s brother-in-law and Gibran’s uncle.
Nevertheless, Gibran has become the running mate of Prabowo, who has the highest approval rating, and is carrying out patronizing welfare policies with the support of President Joko Widodo and Prabowo on his back.
In addition, even though Prabowo is the current Minister of National Defense, it is reported that he mobilized the Ministry of Defense for his election campaign and violated various election laws during the campaign.
Prabowo then held a press conference regarding the documentary and said, “Most of the contents of this documentary are not true. “It is a very hypothetical and unrealistic narrative of hatred,” he strongly denied.
In relation to this, AFP recently reported an article titled ‘Dark clouds of plutocracy hanging over Indonesia’s elections.’
The article pointed out that envelopes containing bribes and free gifts are running rampant in the political arena during Indonesia’s presidential, general, and local council elections.
Meanwhile, Indonesia plans to hold presidential, general, and local council elections all in one day on the 14th.
