Few agencies claim that No.1 Prabowo Subianto - Hatta Rajasa win the election. Few claim that No. 2, Jokowidodo - Jusuf Kalla are the winner. Then both of them made a winning speech and broacoast across the country made confussion to the Nation, before legal announcement by the Committee 2 weeks ahead, July 22.

July 9, 2014 is D Day for Indonesian to vote after 2 periods of 5 years, Susilo Bambag Yudhoyono, incumbent not allowed to join the election. The citizen seem entuciasm going to the poll stations, including who stayed or traveled abroad, who voted 3 - 4 days beforehand, last Saturday and Sunday.

In the middle of campaign, Election committee hold 5 times debates, 4 times between the couples and once just between vice President candidates. Citizen had more then enough references to decide wich couple to vote for the sake of the country.

Electability of the two couple, No 1 Prabowo Subianto - Hatta Rajasa lower than No 2 Jokowidodo - Jusuf Kalla but the gap not too big, head to head. So the competition climate seem quite hot and every sides wait in high tension as well.

Few hours after closing time of the election, some survey agencies would inform Quick count. Generally speaking, the result of quick account represent the real outcome of the election.

What concern of public were that the election would be intervered by many money politic, cheating as happened before in parliament members election and the real result would be lower then estimated.

In the last two weeks before D Day, ruling party, Partai Demokrat took side for No.1, Prabowo Subiyanto - Hatta Rajasa, who previously took a Neutral position. This decision made a big and positive impact for  No.1 big coalition parties.

Nation can't wait until election committee announce the legal result from all over local election committees in 33 provinces across the country.
