Humiliating the challengers

The Jakarta Post called it a vote to “humiliate” his two opponents — Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono emerged from the Indonesian presidential election in a league of his own. Across the largest Moslem nation on earth the incumbent gained outright majorities that will make a run-off election unnecessary.
The steps towards a meaningful democracy in Indonesia truly are amazing. There have been no reports of major violence at the polling booths and the winning margin is go great that it is hard to believe that there is any real substance to former president Megawati Soekarnoputri’s claim that several million people were not on the rolls.
