JAKARTA, INDONESIA: In the recent highly anticipated Indonesian Presidential debate held last Thursday, all three pairs of Presidential candidates pledged to uphold human rights.
However, their commitments are now under scrutiny by the country’s civil society, which demands concrete policies to back up these promises.
The debate, a focal point of the national political event, showcased various perspectives on Law, Human Rights, Governance, Corruption Eradication, and the Enhancement of Democracy among the Indonesian presidential candidates.
This inaugural debate took place at the Indonesian General Election Office at 7 pm local time and was broadcast on several local TV stations, drawing attention nationwide.
In the upcoming election, three pairs will contend for the positions of president and vice president.
The first duo consists of Anies Baswedan and Abdul Muhaimin Iskandar, followed by Prabowo Subianto and Gibran Rakabuming as the second pair.
The final pair comprises Ganjar Pranowo and Mohamad Mahfud.
