Parading for Jokowi

IMG_2417GI1

“As April’s parliamentary elections approach, Indonesians get more and more passionate about their favorite presidential candidates. In Yogyakarta, a parade promotes Joko Widodo (affectionately known as Jokowi) with masks, dancers, and trademark ‘Jokowi’ plaid shirts. Jokowi, who appeals to the public because of his honest and approachable image, is not yet an official candidate, but many Indonesians hope that his party, the Indonesian Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P) will nominate him come April.”
