Indonesian authorities braced for protests Tuesday after the opposition rejected President Joko Widodo’s electoral victory. The Electoral Commission confirmed that Widodo received 55.5 percent of the votes, while his main opponent, retired Gen. Prabowo Subianto, secured 44.5 percent. Some 154 million Indonesians participated in the electoral process that spanned 17,000 islands and about 800,000 polling stations.
