Indonesia's Constitutional Court may have to decide leadership

Indonesia's Constitutional Court may have to decide leadership

Updated 11 July 2014, 16:44 AEST

Indonesia's likely new president, Joko Widodo has warned against tampering with ballots, ahead of a final count of votes from Wednesday's disputed election.

Both Mr Widodo and his rival, former general Prabowo Subianto, claimed victory in Wednesday's election, even though early counts gave Jokowi a four-point-five percentage point lead.

The Elections Commission will formally announce the result about ten days from now.

And already, there's talk of a constitutional challenge.
