Views: Pending

on july 11 all Jakarta residents went to voting centre to vote their new governor and their vice governor for next five year in governing Jakarta City. the quick count had given the temporary result that the candidate Jokowi- Ahok got 42 % had beaten the others candidates such as Fauzi Bowo( 34%), NurHidayat( 11%) and others. so jokowi and his partner will compete for second round after July 20th to get the final result that who will be the next Jakarta Governor. Jokowi try to make coalition with other parties or candidates who didin't get enough voting to continue to second round. It means Jokowi- Ahok will have very big oppotunities to be governor of Jakarta if they can get 50% voting in second round. if not Fauzi will take this chance and will be the next Jakarta for next five years for second time. Jakarta people expect that Jokowi - Ahok will bring improvments in many sectors and fields such public facilities, health, education and others.people think that fauzi bowo has failed doing his program that he had promised likes overcoming the flood, job oppotunities, people welfare, housing,educational and health cost, evironmental cleanliness and others. Jakarta residents and commuters are disappointed with fauzi bowo' works that didnot overcome all the classical jakarta' problems.
