Why Religion Still Counts

Why Religion Still Counts IN the final leg of the Jakarta gubernatorial election, the candidates make it clear that their objective is to win over the capital’s Muslim majority vote. Incumbent Basuki Tjahaja Purnama and his running mate Djarot Saiful Hidayat as well as their opponents, Anies Baswedan and Sandiaga Uno go all out to woo both radical and moderate Muslims, especially those among the undecided voters and the 17 percent who cast their ballots for Agus Yudhoyono, the third candidate who fell during the first round. The latest polls show them head to head in the race. Law: The Attack Against Novel Baswedan THERE is no let-up in the attacks against anti-graft investigator, Novel Baswedan. This is Baswedan’s sixth attack since he joined the KPK and the worst incidents always seem to happen when he is looking into the involvement of important public figures: the hit-and-run incident when he looked into the suspiciously fat bank account of a police general, and lately, the dawn acid attack as he probes into the Rp2.3 trillion graft involving the speaker of the House and other lawmakers. Outreach: Coastal Treasures BLESSED with more than 50,000 square meters of coral reefs and three million hectares of mangrove forests, Indonesia has a vast potential for marine ecotourism. Unquestionably, Indonesia off ers some of the most beautiful marine ecosystems in the world.
