Indonesia's state power company PLN estimates it will take a further three hours to restore electricity to Jakarta following a major power blackout in the capital and surrounding provinces, the company's acting chief executive said on Sunday.

She said electricity customers in the provinces of West Java and Banten should get power back within four to five hours. "Hopefully it would not go beyond midnight," she said.
