JAKARTA Three candidates for the governorship of Indonesia's capital remain neck and neck as the campaign enters its final stretch. In the background, a "cold war" between the current president and his predecessor is adding to the drama.
Incumbent Gov. Basuki Tjahaya Purnama, nicknamed Ahok, once lost steam but is gradually regaining support ahead of the Feb. 15 election. The momentum of Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono, the son of former President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, is beginning to wane. And Anies Baswedan, a former education and culture minister, cannot be counted out.
