Riots Break Out in Jakarta Following Incumbent's Victory in Presidential Election

Riots broke out in Jakarta on May 21, following confirmation that President Joko Widodo had been victorious in Indonesia’s recent presidential election.

Widodo took 55.5 percent of the vote, according to the Electoral Commission, with challenger Prabowo Subianto on 44.5 percent.

Subianto has disputed the result, alleging voter fraud.

His supporters took to the streets of Jakarta in protests that began peacefully on May 21, but turned violent as the night wore on.

Police used tear gas, rubber bullets and sticks to disperse crowds, while protesters threw rocks and set fire to structures, according to media reports.

Jakarta Governor Anies Baswedan said six people were killed.

But a spokesman for the police quoted in the Jakarata Post on May 22 said this was not confirmed.

This footage, shared with Storyful by a local, shows the disturbances continuing into the morning of May 22.
