JAKARTA, July 13: The winner and runner-up in Indonesia's presidential election which sparked deadly riots in the capital called for reconciliation on Saturday, in their first meeting since the vote.
It comes two weeks after defeated Prabowo Subianto lost a court challenge to overturn President Joko Widodo's victory in the April election.
On Saturday, the former general and the country's re-elected leader rode the newly-inaugurated mass rapid transit (MRT) system together in Jakarta. "Some people asked why Prabowo has not congratulated Jokowi, well I do have manners and I wanted to congratulate him in person," Subianto said, standing next to the president.    -AFP
