Pastika grabs 56 percent votes in Bali gubernatorial election
July 10th, 2008

Denpasar (ANTARA News) – Indonesia`s leading pollster LSI (Indonesian Survey Institute) announced that until Wednesday afternoon the I Made Mangku Pastika-AA Puspayoga pair was leading in the direct gubernatorial election in Bali province by grabbing 56.40 percent of the votes.

The LSI made the provisional tally of the votes cast on Wednesday after the gubernatorial election took place throughout the the paradise island earlier in the day.

The LSI which conducted the survey at 300 polling stations said that Cokorda Budi Suryawan – Nyoman Suweta (CBS-Suweta) pair obtained 25.09 percent and the Gede Winasa-Alit Putra pair only got 18.51 percent of the votes.

Denny JA, the LSI chief, said the LSI`s quick count results would be one percent different from those of the provincial general election commission (KPUD)`s final tally but the ranking would remain unchanged.

In addition, the number of non-voters was predicted not to exceed 25 percent of the registered participants in the gubernatorial election.

“Based on the survey results, we predict that the participation level of voters in the election reaches 77.44 percent,” Denny said, adding that the number of non-voters would be the lowest among several gubernatorial elections in the country.

A total of 2.631.754 people out of about 3.6 million of the island`s population have been registered to cast votes at 5,683 polling stations on election day.

The I Made Mangku Pastika-AA Puspayoga pair was nominated by the Indonesian Democratic Party-Struggle (PDI-P) led by Megawati Soekarnoputri.

The Cok Budi Suryawan-Nyoman Suweta (CBS-Suweta) pair was supported by several parties, including the Golkar Party while the Prof Dr Gede Winasa-Alit Putra pair was supported by a number of parties grouped in the Bali Awakening Coalition.
