Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Jakarta governor candidate Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (Ahok) said he is not worried with the upcoming massive demonstration on November 4.

Muslim hardliners plan a massive protest against him. They want the National Police to process his religious blasphemy case.

"I am not worried," said Ahok during his campaign rally in Central Jakarta on Tuesday (11/1).

"I will continue to campaign. I will continue to visit my constituents," he stated.

National Police chief General Tito Karnavian predicts around 30 thousand people will join the demonstration. The police will deploy around 18 thousand personnel to secure the protest.
