JAKARTA, Nov 28 — Campaigning for Indonesia’s presidential election was officially underway on today, with two of the three candidates kicking off two months of whistle-stop touring to woo voters in a race to lead the world’s third largest democracy.

Indonesia holds presidential and legislative elections on February 14, with Defence Minister Prabowo Subianto, former Central Java governor Ganjar Pranowo, and former Jakarta governor Anies Baswedan vying to replace the hugely popular outgoing leader Joko Widodo after a decade in power.

Recent surveys have showed former special forces commander Prabowo leading with Ganjar second and Anies a distant third.

Anies is set to meet voters in and around the capital Jakarta, with his running mate, Muhaimin Iskandar in East Java’s Surabaya.

Prabowo and his vice-presidential pick Gibran Rakabuming Raka, the eldest son of President Widodo, will start their campaign at a later date.

The candidates will appear in debates organised by the election commission in the coming weeks, with no schedule unveiled so far.
