Political uncertainties remain, however, as Subianto announced Wednesday he plans to file a legal challenge in the nation's highest court.
But the Widodo victory takes at least one sensitive issue off the agenda - the human rights record of Prabowo, said Doug Paal, who served as White House director of Asian affairs under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. Prabowo, a former commander of Indonesia's notorious special forces, has been accused of ordering the disappearance of political activists before Suharto's fall, allegations that reportedly led to him being denied a U.S. visa. The ambassador underlined that his intent was not to target Prabowo - who has been denied entry to the United States because of his human rights record - but to highlight the need for accountability for human-rights abuses. However, the timing of his statement is questionable. He could have made it long before the election, or afterwards. Such a statement sends a signal to the world that the United States leans toward Joko Widodo, and does not want Prabowo to become president Hashim said Nairn had been used by Prabowo's rival to tarnish his image. Blake's statement is widely understood to concern Prabowo - former commander of Kopassus, the Indonesian Army's Special Forces Command - who is now facing off with Jakarta Governor Joko Widodo in the country's presidential race. Prabowo has been accused of involvement in human rights abuses in East Timor during the early 1990s as well as the kidnapping of pro-democracy activists in Jakarta in 1998. Wiranto, commander of the Indonesian Military (TNI) at the time, recently confirmed that Prabowo had been discharged from the force for ordering the abduction of the activists, 13 of who remain missing to this date. Aleksius Jemadu, another foreign-policy observer, said in an opinion piece published by the Jakarta Globe on Monday that Blake's statement may indicate the United States' preference of Joko over Prabowo. "Despite the fact that both presidential hopefuls emphasize the importance of economic independence in their platforms, over the last few days, Prabowo has spoken in a tone that can be interpreted as unfriendly toward major foreign corporations in Indonesia," said Aleksius, who is dean of the School of Government and Global Affairs at Pelita Harapan University. The statement is understood to refer to Prabowo, the former head of the Army Special Forces (Kopassus) and Army Strategic Reserves (Kostrad), who is accused of rights abuses in East Timor in the early 1990s and the abduction of pro-democracy activists in Jakarta in 1997 and 1998. Dino denied that he was speaking out in support of Prabowo - who has the backing of most senior Democrat officials, despite the party officially adopting a neutral line - saying instead that he wanted to see both candidates "unite over this principal matter" of foreign meddling. Prabowo, who has spooked foreign investors with his nationalist rhetoric, embellished that standing even further with comments at a discussion in Jakarta on Saturday in which he called for Indonesia to reject Western ideals such as direct elections. "Consciously or not, our [political] elites were all educated by the West, including [former president] Sukarno, [former vice president Mohammad] Hatta, [former prime minister Sutan] Syahrir, and even myself. We're products of the West," Prabowo said as quoted by Kompas at a culture dialogue at the Taman Ismail Marzuki cultural center in Central Jakarta. He said that as a result, Indonesia had adopted Western cultural and political ideals and held them above Indonesian ones, "even though they're not appropriate." "But we've gone too far," he said as quoted by Merdeka.com. "Like direct elections - we've already gone down that path. It's like someone addicted to smoking; if we ask them to stop, the process will be difficult. "I believe much of our political and economic systems go against [Indonesia's] fundamental philosophy, laws and traditions, but what's done is done. We need a new consensus." If Prabowo becomes president, it will have been through a direct election - the very concept he questioned. With opinion polls pointing to falling popular support for Widodo-who was earlier touted to be a likely overwhelming winner-intensive efforts are being made to prevent a victory by his opponent, Prabowo Subianto . Prabowo, a former general, son-in-law of Suharto and commander of the notorious Kopassus elite special forces, is a wealthy business figure and founder of the Great Indonesia Movement Party (Gerindra). On June 22, the newspaper published an article based on the email and citing Blake's call for Indonesia to investigate alleged human rights abuses by Prabowo. Washington's concerns today are that Prabowo is too nakedly associated with the brutal record of the Suharto era-which the US backed for three decades-plus his nationalist rhetoric against Indonesia being tied to the interests of the United States. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, the outgoing president, sought to balance between the US and China, Indonesia's biggest trading partner, but there are fears that Prabowo will be more resistant to US pressure to line up behind Washington's aggressive "pivot" to Asia to militarily and strategically encircle Beijing. The July 4 Jakarta Post editorial denounced Prabowo for affiliating with "hard-line Islamic groups" and "religious thugs. The editorial insisted that Prabowo was "embedded in a New Order-style of transactional politics that betrays the spirit of reformasi. After mentioning Prabowo's "tainted record on human rights," its July 5 article denounced him as a "master of money politics" who "bashes foreign investors. Widodo's coalition encompasses the Muslim-based National Awakening Party, the National Democrat Party led by media tycoon Surya Paloh and the Hanura Party led by ex-army commander Wiranto who, himself tainted by loyal service to Suharto, has been releasing the dirt on Prabowo. Both Widodo and Prabowo have resorted to nationalist rhetoric to divert attention away from faltering economic growth, revealing the impact of the global downturn, while feigning commitments to protect people's "welfare. Such a statement was perceived to be an indirect rejection of Prabowo Subianto and a tacit endorsement of Joko Widodo. Mr. Subianto, who faces Jakarta Gov. Mr. Subianto's campaign declined to comment on the document or Mr. Blake's call for an investigation of the candidate. One campaign representative said in a television interview that the discharge scenario had been engineered by Mr. Subianto's political foes to blacken his name. Mr. Subianto also has pointed out that some of the kidnap victims from 1998 have joined the Gerindra political party he founded and support his candidacy for president. The U.S. government has long been concerned by Mr. Subianto's alleged involvement in human-rights violations committed by Kopassus, the Special Forces unit that he headed. He received U.S. military training twice in the 1980s but later was denied a visa to enter the U.S. because of his rights record. It is unusual for a U.S. ambassador to discuss another nation's candidate for president during the closing weeks of a campaign. The embassy said the ambassador's statement wasn't meant to target Mr. Subianto but to highlight the need for accountability for human-rights abuses during the Suharto era. The heightened examination of his record as a general coincides with Sunday's debate focusing on defense and foreign affairs, which should play to Mr. Subianto's strengths. But the human-rights issue could leave him vulnerable. The Widodo campaign, which also has the backing of former top generals from the Suharto era, has sought to focus attention on the rights issue. During the first debate June 9, when the candidates were joined onstage by their running mates, Mr. Widodo's vice presidential candidate, Jusuf Kalla, asked Mr. Subianto how he would repair damage from past human-rights violations and how he would handle the issue in the future. "I know where your question is going," Mr. Subianto replied, his voice rising. Former Army Chief Wiranto, who was Mr. Subianto's superior and is supporting Mr. Widodo, said Mr. Subianto ordered the students' kidnapping on his own initiative and that the action violated army policy.
