Jokowi-era policy continuity expected after Indonesia’s 2024 polls: report

Indonesia will hold its presidential election in mid-2024. 

A continuity in policies of incumbent President Joko Widodo is expected after Indonesia holds its presidential election in mid-2024, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) reported.

“We expect a run-off presidential election in mid-2024, as no candidate will be able to secure a simple majority in the first round,” EIU forecast. 

“With implicit support from the influential incumbent president, Joko Widodo, we expect Prabowo Subianto, the chairman of the Great Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra) and the incumbent defence minister, to win eventually.”

Prabowo will likely benefit from the widespread popularity of President Jokowi, which could also earn him support in provinces where he fares relatively poorly. 

EIU expected this to compel Prabowo to ensure that policies during Jokowi policies will be retained. 

In particular, the flagship capital relocation project and other infrastructure schemes, such as Jakarta-Bandung high-speed railway.
