Jakarta's assistant to the secretary for administrative affairs, Bambang Sugiono, called on officials at Jakarta's six regional election desks in mayoral and regent offices to provide information related to the current election.

“So, the desks are not merely meeting places, but also a place to give information [to voters],” Bambang said Tuesday during the desk evaluation, as quoted by beritajakarta.com.

Residents, Bambang continued, would be able to report their problems related to Jakarta's election directly to the desks.

In September, the local administration launched regional election desks for Jakarta located in the five mayors' offices and the Thousand Islands' regent's office.

Jakarta is getting ready for the election runoff on April 19, in which two pairs will contest the gubernatorial seat: Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama-Djarot Saiful Hidayat and Anies Baswedan-Sandiaga Uno. (wnd)
