Does Your Voice Count?

Early this morning Jakarta had an election for a new Governor. As you've seen on the picture, the Governor election this year has two candidates consist of Governor and his deputy.

Candidates are;
1. Adang Daradjatun and Dani Anwar
2. Fauzi Bowo and Prijanto

By the time I write this post, TV news has already announced the vote results. Fauzi Bowo-Prijanto gets 56,12% voice and of course will be the new Governor (and Deputy of Governor) of Jakarta. Congratulations!

Hopefully the new Governor and his deputy will fulfill their vision of making a better Jakarta; no more flood attack, less traffic jam, and more opportunities to the poor who wants education. God bless.
