Prabowo holds mass prayers in celebration of claimed victory


Presidential contender Prabowo Subianto is preparing to hold mass prayers in front of his house after Friday prayers in South Jakarta on Friday. 

A stage was erected in front of his house, where a number of Muslim clerics are seated and chanting "Allahu Akbar (God is the greatest)" and "Prabowo is our President".

Hundreds of his supporters are present at the location.

Prabowo and his supporters performed Friday prayers at Al-Azhar Mosque in South Jakarta, which is located within walking distance from his house.

After Friday prayers, Prabowo and his supporters performed a prostration of gratitude in celebration of his claimed victory and for a peaceful election.

His campaign team told the supporters who were present at the mosque to safeguard the vote counting process from tampering and disruption.

His running mate, Sandiaga Uno, and officials from his coalition parties were not seen at his house. 

Prabowo had yet to comment at the time of writing.
