Indonesia’s presidential challenger says does not accept result

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Indonesian presidential candidate Prabowo Subianto said on Tuesday (May 21) he did not accept official election results giving President Joko Widodo a second term because he believed there was cheating in the polls.

He also told reporters he would "continue to make legal efforts in line with the constitution to defend the mandate of the people and the constitutional rights that were seized".

Prabowo also urged his supporters to maintain "public order" should they want to rally against the results amid heightened tensions on potential clashes in the capital city.

The result released by the General Election Commission (KPU) gave Widodo a 55.5% share of votes against 44.5% for retired general Prabowo who has refused to concede defeat after claiming widespread cheating.
