Indonesian President Joko Widodo said on Wednesday that vote "quick counts" indicated he had regained the presidency but called on his supporters to wait for the election commission to announce official results. Widodo is set to win the popular vote and is leading challenger Prabowo Subianto by between 7.5 and 11.6 percentage points, according to unofficial "quick counts" of a sample of votes by six pollsters.

"Indications from exit polls and quick counts, we have seen all, but we must be patient and wait for the KPU's (election commission's) official tabulation," he told a news conference, during which he said the elections had been "honest and fair". "Let's all reunite as brothers and sisters, after the legislative and presidential election," he said.
