The Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) topped the legislative election league table, with a 19 percent share of the vote, according to a quick count survey by the Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).
The Golkar Party ranked second with 14.4 percent, closely followed by the Gerindra Party with 11.9 percent. This year's dark horse was the National Awakening Party (PKB), which surprisingly secured 9.5 percent. The Democratic Party rounded up the top five with 9.4 percent.
"It is obvious that the PDI-P won even though it garnered below its own target of 30 percent," Cyrus Network executive director Hasan Nasbi told a press conference on Wednesday.
The quick count survey also found that the nascent NasDem Party had made a good impression, with 6 percent of voters choosing it.
The survey was jointly conducted by the CSIS with pollster Cyrus Network, in 2,000 polling stations throughout the country. The confidence level is 95 percent with 1 percent of margin of error. (nvn)
