In this episode, we talk about our feelings after the 2019 presidential and legislative elections and share our unique experiences voting for the first time abroad. We discuss the huge turnout (80%) of voters, Jokowi’s healthy lead of +10% over Prabowo at the time of recording and the increasingly certain result of Jokowi winning the popular vote & retaining the presidency, as well as the legislative election results.
In light of recent events, we also discuss the tragic deaths of election workers who died due to fatigue and over-exhaustion following Election Day, which was the largest single-day round of elections held in the world. We implore that the KPU or General Elections Commission review their current protocol and improve the situation so that such a tragedy never happen again in the future. Finally, we share a bit of exciting personal news: Stephanie’s documentary, Trouble Finds You, premiered over the weekend and has garnered a lot of positive responses and great press coverage!!
Thanks for listening!
