Jakarta Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama said that before voting on Wednesday, he and his family prayed together in the hope of getting the best election result.
"We pray for the best for our service," Ahok said while walking to polling station number 54 in the Pantai Mutiara complex, Pluit, North Jakarta, on Wednesday
Ahok's eldest son, Nicholas Sean, who voted together with his father and mother, Veronica Tan, said that he hoped that if his father was elected, he could continue to serve the residents.
After voting, Ahok said that he would monitor the election in some polling stations before meeting with his campaign team at the Pullman Hotel in Central Jakarta.
The embattled governor said that if he lost, he would keep working until the end of his tenure in October.
If he won, he would work to finish his programs, Ahok said.
