The Jakarta Elections Supervisory Agency (Bawaslu) has announced that gubernatorial candidate Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono and his running mate Sylviana Murni have made the most violations so far during the campaign from Oct. 28 to Nov. 10.

“The Agus-Sylviana pair conducted the most, with 15 violations,” agency chairwoman Mimah Susanti said on Thursday as reported by kompas.com.

Mimah said the violations were the presence of unregistered volunteers, unpermitted campaigning, the involvement of children and the installment of campaign materials that did not follow regulations.
