Another survey shows that gubernatorial candidate and incumbent Jakarta Governor Basuki “Ahok” Tjahaja Purnama and his running mate Jakarta Deputy Governor Djarot Saiful Hidayat have bounced back to regain the lead in the Jakarta gubernatorial election.
Jakarta-based pollster Charta Politika, which conducted the survey from Feb. 3 to Feb. 8, shows that 39 percent of respondents said they would vote for Ahok-Djarot, while 31.9 percent favored Anies Baswedan-Sandiaga Uno.
The third ticket, Agus Harimurti Yudhoyono-Sylviana Murni, came in last with 21.3 percent support.
“As many as 7.8 percent of respondents said they still didn’t know [who to vote for],” Charta Politika executive director Yunarto Wijaya said in a press conference at his office in South Jakarta on Saturday as quoted by Kompas
The survey involved 764 respondents spread across Jakarta’s five municipalities.
