Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDIP) chairwoman Megawati Soekarnoputri has instructed PDIP members to support incumbent Jakarta Governor Basuki Tjahaja Purnama and Vice Governor Djarot Saipul Hidayat in the 2017 Jakarta gubernatorial election.

The pair registered for the election on Wednesday (9/21) afternoon. Megawati accompanied them to the Jakarta General Election Commission office.

"I want PDIP officials to spread the instruction," Megawati said after the registration.

"We support regional leaders without seeing their races," she continued.
