Vice-presidential hopeful Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno is the richest candidate in the 2019 two-horse presidential race with his reported wealth totaling Rp 5.1 trillion (US$349 million).

President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s running mate Ma’ruf Amin, who departed for the haj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday morning, has yet to submit his wealth report.

According to wealth reports disclosed by the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), most of Sandiaga’s fortune is derived from securities worth Rp 4.7 trillion. The report, however, does not disclose the name of the companies involved.

Upon accompanying Sandiaga in reporting his wealth to the antigraft body on Tuesday, Prabowo Subianto-Sandiaga campaign team member Sudirman Said confirmed that Sandiaga owned a 30 percent stake in investment company PT Saratoga Investama Sedaya.

Meanwhile, Prabowo ranked second with his wealth totaling Rp 1.9 trillion -- around 90 percent of which also came from securities.

While Sandiaga reported his wealth to the KPK on Tuesday, Prabowo did it much earlier on July 26.

Meanwhile, Jokowi’s wealth is only a tiny fraction of that his rivals, with a total of Rp 50 billion. Jokowi’s wealth is largely derived from several plots of land and properties, mostly in Central Java, worth Rp 43 billion. His report was verified by the antigraft body on Wednesday morning.

The KPK has set a deadline for candidate wealth report submissions on Aug. 21. (swd)
